    Pros

    The liquor industry is constantly evolving so it never is mundane. Sazerac works to be cutting edge when it comes to its presence in the market. You can expect for them to spend their money wisely and effectively.

    Cons

    They are growing at a rapid pace so there have been many hiccups that larger more established companies don't have.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and direction need to be more clear on the future of new and expanding jobs.

    Pros

    We make and sell alcoholic beverages. The products are great. The company is growing. If you're in sales, the befefits are great.

    Cons

    The Company is going through a lot of change. Hard to get a direction when the direction is not clear. Compensation is not flexible and there is no benefit to extra effort.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at what's going on and get involved. The strain on the employees will soon become too much.

    Pros

    You are a part of the most award winning whiskey distillery in America.
    The final product is amazing and people visit your work site on their vacations.
    Small company, get to wear several hats and get exposure to several areas.
    Company culture is to be "the best place to work".

    Cons

    HR department is distant.
    VERY lean on headcount - hourly and salary - and does not match growth.
    Growth has outpaced existing capacity with no plans for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    "Make it work" only goes so far.

    Pros

    The company has a great portfolio of products, but a limited understanding of how to best bring them to market with maximum leverage. Not every category can be approaced by a straight POD selling push, and not every marketing program can have a qualtifiable and easily determined result. That said, they have enjoyed great success in the past with a number of items.

    Cons

    Management are crazed workaholics, and employ questionsble business practices. The constant employee turnover is disheartening and results in a total breakdown of communication. Field agents are given insufficient resources to achieve their goals, which are often either simply unattainable or uncommunicated.

    Advice to Management

    Don't undertake projects you don't understand

    Pros

    Fast paced, organinc growth and dynamic. Growing rapidly through organic growth and acquisition. Passionate and skilled work force. Large portfolio.

    Cons

    Understaffed to a point of limiting success. Under resourced to realize desired long term results. Large portfolio that needs more resources to secure desired results.

    Advice to Management

    Staff and compensate to be more competitive than the competition and to be able to realize company's potential. Address human resource need asap.
