    Very convivial and friendly environment that made you feel welcomed and valued. Great benefits. Interesting projects which developed your expertise.

    Small chance at development opportunities, grad schemes differ to the placement positions and therefore are unappealing to some.

    Pros

    Great brands and great global culture Forward thinking Entrepreneurial company Great convivial events Good work life balance

    Cons

    CODI: no clear direction and no clear understanding on they want for the business ( short term thinking) no clear direction on people's role model and what do they expect to be delivered ( or at least skills and behaviors). - Lack of consistency on the decisions, making the team very lost and unsafe: just recently started firing people for different reasons just saying behavior, not only this but also firing I would say almost 99% of the women that came back from maternity leave since they have implemented 6 months leave ( I could remember of 6 but surely I forgot someone) , sometimes even firing people when they knew they were about to have babies . Communication is a mess: CODI members do not communicate well between themselves and even less with own team. Even when they talk with the team they have totally different directions on what to do depending of the CODI member you work with. -Talks about diversity but hire people with the same background and even coming from the same company. -Low RH power to protect internal processes and people.

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

    Pros

    -Low stress environment with convenient working hours (9-5 common) -Encourage work-life balance -Great brands in category -Conviviality is real pursuit of business -Easy to show up, do bare minimum, collect pay check -Perks, giveaways -Good benefits -Weekly happy hours are fun and good for morale -Commitment to CSR -Modern high end office space -Friendly people -Real investment in digital marketing capabilities should pay off -Opportunities to move offices or work abroad -Salary relative to work expectation -Digital marketing and finance teams are very willing and capable

    Cons

    -Corporate, hierarchical, bureaucratic, slow moving -Living on the success of few big brands and riding that as far as it will go - little focus outside of core 3-4 brands -Low expectations of employees. Reliant on consultants -Countless woman/man hours wasted in unnecessary meetings -Left this job feeling less technically capable than when joining -HR department is considered incompetent to the point where victims of poor management or harassment will not seek help, anticipating no resolution and being identified for speaking up -Little passion from employees for the work they do -Employees do not seem valued by management -Care more about things being done than done well - check the box mentality -CYA is the common practice. Accountability avoidance and passing blame the norm -Dated marketing practices -No establishment of project direction, midpoint goals, or specific desired outcomes at project onset, leads to incredible amounts of time wasted on midproject "pivots" (rework towards a new end any time any one stakeholder divines a new desired outcome). Deadlines rarely met. No consequences for missing deadlines. -Consensus-seeking to the point of ideas never progressing -Structure with tension between brand owner companies and market companies creates many challenges and exhausts a lot of time and resources -Little if any long-term career pathing -Favoritism and nepotism common -Reward relationships over competence, but seems to be changing -Followers not innovators -Little long term planning - focus never goes beyond next deadline -Will almost always look to do things the way they were done before rather than try something new - even when old ways have failed -Frequent re-orgs and team shakeups -Disconnect between most brands marketing and commercialization/sales teams

    Pros

    Nice work environment if you avoid the politics. There are always events on at the office which makes it convivial.

    Cons

    Instability caused by constantly changing structure and job roles; ineffective planning to cover open positions or maternity covers. Lack of clarity on career path. Low annual increments. Recent cost cutting has been extreme, cutting back on travel required to do the job effectively. Spend all their money on prime office space and conferences, instead of employee benefits
