    I have been working at Brown-Forman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a company where values drive the business, from the shareholders and the CEO down the entire organisation. This is truly unique in the business and great to work for ! It is also genuinely sincere, unlike other companies where it is often just for political correctness.

    Cons

    No real cons actually. Having worked for other companies before, it feels great to be within a company where human beings do matter.

    Pros

    I feel our B-F leaders put our people and our products at the same level of importance. They take care of their employees by offering great benefits, ensuring access to challenging and motivating work, access to Employee Resource Groups and D&I learning as well as overall creating a positive and stimulating culture. Overall, working at B-F has been a blessing to my career. I look forward to working at B-F for many years to come!

    Cons

    Our org is structured in a way that makes career advancement difficult, you must work very hard and be patient.
