    Pros

    Highly strategic brand marketers delivering consistent breakthrough creativity on an amazing portfolio of premium / super premium spirits brands. Culture in the NYC office was exceptionally positive and collaborative. Employees supported one another personally and professionally and the family culture fostered true and lasting friendships.

    Cons

    Internal WGS teams were very lean
