    Pros

    Brands are fantastic! The employees really give the company full support especially through usage of personal social media to support the brands.

    Cons

    No growth at all! No loyalty for years worked in organization and reorganization seems to be the only thing consistent. Upper management is not diverse although the company preaches diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and reward your hard working loyal employees in the end they are your best asset.

    Pros

    The pay check. The people were nice and mostly professional. The experience that was gained has helped me attain other jobs.

    Cons

    Long hours, no solid finish time. The overtime was always last minute. The work wasn't very well organized. The training was minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure people know the extent of the overtime that is needed. Over 100 hour weeks is unacceptable. Also allow tranees take notes when learning new things.

    I have been working at Pernod Ricard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people that the company employs are great people. The culture has a family feel and the company really takes care of their employees. Happy Hours are fun! If you are selected for training at their corporate University in France, it's a great experience. The company has great brands! You get a product allowance to enjoy them.

    Cons

    Generally: Knowing/speaking French will definitely get you further in your career within the company and provide more opportunity, as well as being in Finance or Marketing.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency. The company goes through constant restructures, people are always worried about their jobs, or how their jobs will change. Digital is hot right now, and the company can adapt to the times, but it cannot become it's main focus, its not the core business.
