      I'm proud to work for Brown-Forman because I know I'm valued as an employee and more so, a person. Brands like Jack Daniel's, Gin Mare and Woodford Reserve make it a fun ompany to work for each day. Pay and benefits are competitive including a pension, product promotion and unlimited vacation. D&I isn't just a phrase at Brown-Forman and I see and feel it in the programs we offer and the work we do in and outside of the organization.


      If you're looking to be promoted very quickly, that may not happen at Brown-Forman. It definitely can, but with long tenure (employees are happy to stay!) it may feel like you aren't moving up quickly. I've found there are many opportunities to have stretch assignments or connect with different teams to do work outside of your day job to grow.

      I got an offer from Amazon with a start date of mid-Nov. I already have an important vacation planned for a month from mid-Dec to mid-Jan. What should I do?

      Just finished a case interview. Overall, I thought it went well but was a little confused at one of the charts they showed. After I provided my recommendation the interviewed said "great job" then moved on to questions. Is this a good sign to is this something that is commonly said by interviewers?

      What do you do to not think negatively when waiting for a response after interviews? How long do you wait to for them to respond before you do?
