Featured Review

Current Employee - On-Trade Sales Executive

I have been working at Brown-Forman full-time

Pros

On-boarding week; efficiently organised & engaging given the circumstances of lockdown being implemented and all had to be completed virtually

Cons

I have no cons & can not imagine I will in the future.

Current Employee - Director

I have been working at Bacardi full-time for less than a year

Pros

* Bacardi have shown what they are about by committing millions of dollars to on trade and businesses who need it * Closing some of the plants and dedicating them to produce hand sanitizer for local... needs * Although no one likes to - Bacardi has shown we are all in this together by guaranteeing 100% salary to all furloughed staff, and simply reducing a small percentage of bonuses across the board (Most other companies would just not pay it) * Tech team have done a fantastic job in making the transition to remote working seamless and secure * Although all remote - we are still working fantastically close together on projects and supporting one another * Virtual team drinks and online cocktail masterclasses are great fun * Personally I still have lots to do

Cons

* Love being busy - but seem to be on more calls now than ever before * Longer term - social isolation could be a problem (although every person in the world in every business has the same problem... right now) * I wonder if longer-term offices will be closed or jobs cut simply because of the current climate * Business could be more transparent in general with regards to what they are thinking for the company

Advice to Management

Overall - keep it up!
