I worked at Red Bull part-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Red Bull has one of the strongest brand identities and marketing strategies, bar none. If you're in marketing, you want this company on your resume. You'll also learn a lot.

-Fun events, an emphasis on creativity and breaking the usual rules

-Free Red Bull = awesome!

Cons

(Note that these cons are specific to being a student brand manager on a college campus)

-The rulebreaking spirit of Red Bull can also get its employees into trouble. They ask their reps to pull off questionable tasks that walk the line between legal and illegal. I almost got the cops called on me a few times for sneaking Red Bull branded stuff into places I shouldn't have.

- Support from HQ is limited. Small organizational structure, it's a 'do it yourself, don't screw up' attitude that not everyone enjoys.

- Limited room for advancement. Again, small hierarchy means you may get stuck in a grinding job without much of a pay bump to justify the hours. Student brand rep is a great flexible position, but past that, I'm not sure there are many.

    I have been working at Red Bull full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent Pay. Has some if not the best marketing of any beverage company. Culture is outstanding.

    Cons

    Unless you are willing to work 70 hours a week look elsewhere. Today your a hero tomorrow your a zero. Work life balance is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Realize your district managers are your defensive line and are the most important position at the branch. Currently the inmates run the asylum (account sales managers).
