    I worked at Heineken full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very little, good learning because you work hard and you get to sharpen your teeth on some internal office politics

    Cons

    Broken promises, under paying, worst bosses to work for, very stringent on spending, works you hard and throws you off to the dogs....

    Advice to Management

    Go big or go home, developing markets does produce good talent please just go ahead and trust in them, might do you some good.
