    I have been working at Pernod Ricard full-time

    Pros

    you are encouraged to take responsibility for your role with the freedom to stretch and develop it, within an environment that the management is trying to make more entrepreneurial and risk taking environment

    Cons

    the company is too wedded to its brands which makes it risk averse and slow to adapt to changing consumer trends

    Advice to Management

    let go of the bureaucracy and stop taking yourselves so seriously

    I have been working at Pernod Ricard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work directly (face-to-face) with senior stakeholders around the business.
    Working within a category such as alcohol, where consumers have a real passion for what you create, is very inspiration.

    Cons

    Decentralized business model, massively slows down decision making .
    Not much of an opportunity to be promoted through the business.

    Pros

    Some of the reviews on here say that it is clicky, but I did not find that at all. I really enjoyed working here and there is a great vibe running through the office culture. Lots of freebies and discounts. Nice and busy, but not too a point where you burn out.

    Cons

    No parking nearby. Public transport only really.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to add here, other than my boss was really decent.

    I have been working at Pernod Ricard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Initially it’s great – parties, fun people, access to the best places, seems like a great place to work.
    Employees are generally proud to be associated with the company.

    Cons

    Once you start to think about a career, if you’re not French, white, male and “sponsored” you’re not going anywhere. Tries to project a young, cool, funky image (and they’re very good at this as it’s a marketing-centered company), but in reality it’s a very French, family-run traditional business, where your friends are more important than your ability. Nobody can take a decision until it’s passed all the way up the chain; micromanagement is the order of the day.

    To be fair to the CEO, he gives the impression that he's trying to change the company. But he's from the family, so it's going to be difficult for him to understand and make the changes that are needed: and obviously, he is a white, French, sponsored male...

    Advice to Management

    Diversify from the top down, all CEOs and CFOs are white French males.
