    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

    Pros

    PR invests a lot in its employees through development courses, strong HR policies, perks and convivial moments

    I worked at Pernod Ricard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Relaxed environment Fun events Flexible core hours scheme Progression is possible if you work hard and embrace the company ethos Working from home is not frowned upon (depending on your manager)

    Cons

    Shocking lack of ethnic diversity especially in the senior managers of the business who are all white and mostly male Failure to address remuneration issues with longstanding staff Increasing influence from head office in France sees an overabundance of senior hires of French individuals who don't understand the local environment and are very cliquey Managers more concerned with managing upwards than having... empathy or concern with their employees Work-life balance is a huge issue especially in Finance

    Pros

    Fun and relaxed working environment Good progression available to people who work hard and buy into the company ethos Flexible core hours scheme and ability to work from home when required

    Cons

    Senior managers more concerned with managing upwards with little care or empathy for their employees Lack of ethnic diversity especially in the senior management team Increasingly corporate environment Work-life balance not correct especially in Finance Unwillingness to offer corrective remuneration measures to retain employees Increasing control from head office through the placement of senior staff Nepotism... is rife The increasing desire for control has resulted in more senior hires from head office which has eroded the sense of family & independence that the business used to have

    Care more about the people who do the work Address the issues with ethnic diversity in the business that have until now been ignored

    I have been working at Pernod Ricard full-time for 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.

    I worked at Pernod Ricard full-time for less than a year

    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.
