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

    Pros

    Business growth is massive, so there are tons of opportunities for people who are ambitious and want to develop personally. Benefits are easily the best I've come across in any business I've worked in - generous pension and Unicorn Fund bonus are two standouts. It's easy to feel very close to the company - the founders spend time with employees talking about the vision, and employees views and opinions are sought and really listened to.

    Cons

    It's HARD. If the pace is too great, or if you don't totally buy into what's happening in this company, or if you aren't prepared to go the extra mile, you'll hate it. Working here means committing totally to it. That doesn't mean you can't have a work/life balance - but you need to emotionally put your heart and soul into it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't start doing what every other company does, just because you're getting bigger. Keep the small-business mentality and keep close to all your team.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BrewDog (Edinburgh, Scotland).

    Interview

    After submitting my CV via email, I scheduled an interview with the bar manager. It was very friendly and straightforward. The manager struck a good balance between a personal and professional interest.
