    I have been working at William Grant & Sons full-time

    Pros

    Flexible, fun, great people, great brands. Beautiful office space. Great location.

    Cons

    A lot of the culture has been lost. The Execs have their own agenda and the camaraderie has been lost. As a small to medium size company, opportunities for advancement are slim.
