    I worked at Brown-Forman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great benefits, great people to work with and quite a lot of flexibility - Informal dress code, relatively new tech - fully embracing G-Suite - Regular town hall events, lunch&learns, initiatives and many free meals and bottles to take home - Allowance for merchandise and spirits

    Cons

    - Undergoing changes so a lot of uncertainty - Workloads not balanced very well - some people quite bored - Not many opportunities to progress upwards - teams mostly consist of interns and experienced managers

    Advice to Management

    Basics need to be done better, develop people in their roles if there aren't any opportunities for upward progression. Keep up with the good stuff you are already doing.

      I have been working at Brown-Forman full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      The people at Brown-Forman make this the best company I’ve ever worked for. Working for a company with iconic brands like Jack Daniel’s alongside people who are just as motivated as me makes for a fun and fulfilling work environment.

      Cons

      We are an incredibly collaborative company and that can slow down decision making; which could be frustrating for someone who is used to a fast-paced organization. There is also long tenure at B-F, particularly in the US -- so moving into a new role every two years may not always happen.
