      Pros

      Immediately pivoted in March 2020 to allow non-production employees to work from home. 9 months later, still doing so. Since we are deemed essential, we are still producing our world class whiskeys allowing our Distillery, marketing, sales and administration employees to continue working throughout the pandemic......incredible leadership!

      Cons

      Since very few people ever leave BF, upward mobility is limited. Jobs are structured so they are broad enough to hold you interest for many years.
