    Pros

    There are no pros to working here other than watching the sad excuse for managers try to run a business.

    Cons

    Managers, Hours, Vacation Policy, Managers, Pay, Incentive Programs, Managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage your time and people. Staying in the office late just "to be there" is such a waste of resources. Work smarter. Maybe you wouldn't have 100% turnover/ have to be on a route everyday if you could figure out some DSD basics. Managers are amateurs who can't work in real DSD companies.

    Good company to work for if you are new to DSD industry. They are a new company that is separate from Red Bull.

    Pros

    Young fun crowd to work with

    Cons

    Low pay for a DSD company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be the #1 DSD company you need to be willing to compensate the sales force for their work.

    Pros

    Great connections, young staff, fun work environment and free red bull!

    Cons

    If they don't like you, you will get fired. Plain and simple. The company operates with a lot of favoritism. Unnecessary pressure is placed on you because you are the "face of the brand". They will stalk your social media posts, and judge you harshly based on your activity.

    I felt over worked, and underappreciated for my efforts. They create unrealistic expectations for you that make it unenjoyable to work at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blatant favoritism within the office, and a lot of office politics. My boss was very passive aggressive, would compliment me on my work, or not mention issues, but then send a reprimanding email. Very unorganized company, which adds stress to the work environment.

    Pros

    Red Bull values innovation, creativity, and an entrepreneurial spirit. You get the opportunity to truly lead and have an impact. Wear multiple hats and get your hands in a lot of pots! An amazing corporate culture! Truly a work hard, play hard atmosphere. Amazing benefits! A lot of opportunities for career advancement if you are willing to be mobile.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is on you. There is no such thing as a 9 to 5 here so you better love your job!

    Pros

    An awesome place to work, especially as a college student. Tons of energy and creativity, and a corporate culture built on these values. Very stimulating environment to work in. Always challenging to be better than the day before. Pushing the limits and exceeding expectations is normal. Hard workers and results-driven individuals will thrive and work their way up the ranks. Plenty of opportunity for relationship building with both management, local influencers, and even some athletes. Great marketing experience from one of the most innovative marketers out there. AND it never hurts to have free cases of Red Bull around your dorm any time you want.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say about the experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More collaborative meetings between student brand managers and upper management would help fuel further creativity and get everyone on the same page. SBMs could be more effective with a little more collaboration between one another in person, as opposed to via message board.
