    I have been working at Brown-Forman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a company where values drive the business, from the shareholders and the CEO down the entire organisation. This is truly unique in the business and great to work for ! It is also genuinely sincere, unlike other companies where it is often just for political correctness.

    Cons

    No real cons actually. Having worked for other companies before, it feels great to be within a company where human beings do matter.
