    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Beam Suntory full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and bright individuals.

    Cons

    There is no work-life balance; it is all about making your numbers; it felt like signing a contract with the devil. You will be essentially brainwashed to be drinking every day or every other day on "virtual" happy hours or events and encourage to post on your own personal social media. Leadership is run by white privileged, power-hunger, or micromanage individuals: no true equality or inclusion. It is all about who you know or what evidence you may have on them, lots of politics—salary on the low end for a top spirits supplier.
