    I worked at Bacardi full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The opportunity gave me access to a portfolio of great brands and to grow my experience within the trade.

    Cons

    The company has been overrun by egotistical individuals all trying to climb their way to the top. The business has had a recent mass exodus of brilliant and talented individuals because of the lack of support towards its employees, unrealistic KPI’s and excessive workloads that saw many colleagues needing time out or crumbling silently under stress so that they were not managed out the business by narcissistic micromanagers. In this type of business if your face does not fit you will not further your career prospects. Personality, open dialogue and willingness to flex is not appreciated.

    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

    I have been working at Bacardi full-time

    Pros

    The brands and budgets are good

    Cons

    In-fighting that leads to nothing moving forward, always watching your back. Revolving doors for management and senior people. No one seems to understand what’s expected of them or each other.
