    I have been working at William Grant & Sons

    Pros

    I know I can make a difference. The company has retained an entrepreneurial angle and the subject matter keeps it fun.

    Cons

    As a private company I know I can never have any skin in the game. The opportunity to build options elsewhere may eventually be more valuable than the benefit of a family business

    I worked at William Grant & Sons full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great brands, very hands on experience, and a lot of opportunities to make connections within the industry and even great incentive trips.

    Cons

    Compensation is not worth the amount of work you put in. Very political and cliquey and if you aren’t in the right group, you feel it. Some departments are very old school. Needs to be better about giving employees work-life balance.

    Honestly none come to mind.
