    I worked at Beam Global Spirits & Wine full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pros – Management is very focused on helping you move forward in your career. They help you set short-term and long-term goals that will increase your job satisfaction. Management is fair, understanding, trust their employee's judgment and encourage employees to take on more responsibility and leadership roles. The company is flexible, and has great benefits.

    Cons

    The work-load is demanding and can sometimes be overwhelming. The expectations are high, so you need to be alert and motivated every day. There is very little down time, so if you're not high-energy, this is not the place for you.

    I have been working at Beam Global Spirits & Wine full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very intelligent group of people running business. Challenging and demanding work. The projects you work on are constantly changing. Good perks for some

    Cons

    Political at the top, turnover is quick the higher you go up the ladder. This is especially true in HQ. Revolving personnel door in mid to higher level positions

    I worked at Beam Global Spirits & Wine full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    At the time for my department...free alcohol, macro-managed, good people, benefits, flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Seem to have a revolving door. Since I've worked there, executive decisions have been questionable. They got laid off a lot of talented ppl. Lack of high employee morale. Company has turned into a Sales driven company, which contradicts their motto, "building brands."
