    I have been working at Bacardi full-time (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!

    I had a 2 step interview, the first being informal competency based questions with the hiring manager and the second being some more details questions and a presentation to the finance director.
