    Pros

    Great guidance and experience. You'll get many good responsibilities. I love the people and the company. The industry is a lot of fun as well.

    Cons

    However, you will not be paid much, and opportunity for promotion is very very limited. A lot of ambiguity, even for someone who likes a bit of ambiguity

    Pros

    Amazing brands, great location, good benefits although they have been changing that too. Had a great time there, learned a lot.

    Cons

    No one seems to care that the changes they have made over the last 8-9 years have not taken anywhere good. From being number 1 in the industry, they are now number 4. Changing the company culture have only hurt them. Not able to maintain a solid leadership team, brutal.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to give them some, but why bother? They don't seem to care....good luck!!

    Pros

    Having been in this company for shy of three months I couldn’t feel more grateful and appreciative of all there is to offer. It may be a matter of perspective and comparison however; Bacardi is by far in my opinion one of the best companies one could work for. Although they have experienced many growing pains the direction and perspective of the business and overall culture is one to have great pride in. Amazing benefits package, free lunch, fully equipped gym, quarterly allowances on product and not to mention the opportunity for growth. It is however, the type of company that you need to have initiative, positive energy and drive to grow and understand. Employees are helpful and the senior staff is extremely supportive working on various ways to provide transparency to all employees. It is by far not mediocre and therefore, extremely competitive in all aspects. I am proud to be a part of Bacardi.

    Cons

    You have to be a flexible individual due to the level of change that there has been. In addition, have initiative to meet others, grow in your area and create a professional development plan.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to instill a great culture in the work place!
