    I worked at William Grant & Sons full-time

    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial and little politics.
    They're still growing, so they're hiring and expanding the company -- room to grow.
    Coworkers genuinely care about you (both professionally and personally) and aren't fake/trying to get ahead.
    If you do well and try hard, it will show.
    The most amazing collection of spirits you'll find; people are very passionate about where they work.

    Cons

    Smallish company, sometimes you don't have all the resources you'd like and need to roll up your sleeves and pitch in. Line between work and personal is blurred and it's unofficially expected to be on call all the time. I've been told the pay/benefits aren't in line with the competition but they've worked on that since.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to continue to be the small, entrepreneurial company that allowed so many brands to shine.

    I have been working at William Grant & Sons full-time

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy, good people, family run, great brands

    Cons

    Does not pay competitively, does not value its employees, does not communicate well. Used to be a great company, but recent actions have been a let down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the basics of what made this company great. Show employees that you care. Fix the morale issue.

    I worked at William Grant & Sons full-time

    Pros

    The people and perks are great. It was a time of extreme growth with the company and as such, many new personalities joined the organization.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not good. The company became too corporate and grew too fast, didn't pay attention to what was necessary to make the organization work at the bottom level
