    Pros

    A very "all hands on deck" type of environment with immense opportunities for growth and exposure within the spirits, experiential, and marketing industries.

    World class portfolio of brands that you will be super proud to represent

    I worked at Moët Hennessy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great brand portofolio but company success has been primarily been driven by one brand, Hennessy. Good hiring pool due to NY headquarter location. Great "travel income" as premium business incentive trips are available to many employees employees. Product samples. Event/Experiential Marketing a company strength.

    Cons

    Corporate/Regional relationship has been dyfunctional for years. Company "churns" NY employees. Management does not "walk the walk" re: life/work balance. Career advancement very limited by organizational structure resulting in consistently high turnover rate. Maison micromanagement of US management creates overly competitive, distrustful, and constant "fire drill" enviornment.
