    I worked at Red Bull part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing innovative company with a fun and friendly culture. Met some of my best friends at this job and had some unforgettable experiences that I feel shaped my personal and professional life. This brand is always evolving and growing so things were never dull or repetitive.

    Cons

    No medical or dental coverage because it was part-time

    I worked at Red Bull full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and good opportunities for driven candidates. Willing to spend on initiatives and projects but you better have a detailed plan.

    Cons

    Multiple layers of bureaucracy. Very process heavy organization with very little control if you work in the US (it's actually a European company). If you're looking to drive your own initiatives and be a trailblazer Red Bull 5 years ago was the place to do it but now, maybe not so much today.

    Advice to Management

    Push for more autonomy from Europe. Appreciate your teams more.

    I have been working at Red Bull full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team to join everyone looks out and helps each other. Good environment. No weekends, paid holidays. If you can't get along here you may have to look inward.

    Cons

    You have to get up early. That's the only hard part of this job unless you are not a people person but that's a main part of the job.

    Pros

    Great culture, talented people, lots of autonomy, awesome projects.

    Cons

    Career progression is chaotic, no clear paths, sometimes the decisions made to promote people are based on a 'bro club' or social cliques. Titles are not conducive to actual roles (titles are below the level they should be in some departments).

    Advice to Management

    Support your people in structured career growth. Don't promote people based on how much they are 'liked' but how effective they actually are and the contributions they make to the business beyond the social.

    Pros

    Really fun, and cool way to network! You learn a lot of skills and get to make a good salary while in college

    Cons

    The management can be very biased, petty and unapologetic about this. The team can also be drama filled.

    Advice to Management

    Hire FMS who actually care about the team, the teams interaction/relationships with each other and most of all, the safety.
