Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 4, 2018
Good place to work, great pay and benefits. Frustrating management at times with constant reorganizations, but all in all a pretty relaxed place to work. Limited growth opportunities beyond your current role however outside of reorganizations.
Senior International Benefits Analyst (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 4, 2018
Great culture and company, though a recent re-org has impacted feelings some. I believe in the company and the culture and family but some of those behind the re-org decisions didn't take these things into consideration and has made the atmosphere/culture quite different from the day I started.
Corporate Executive Chef (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – October 29, 2018
I had a very positive experience working for this company. Great hours and pay for a chef, great customers and co-workers. Lots of freedom to use creativity with menus and lots of interesting events to plan and execute.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Tennessee – October 22, 2018
Most generous company I have ever seen. Really cannot beat the benefits. The culture and vision is amazing, but does not necessarily trickle to every location. Career advancement often seems only at the corporate level.
Weak leadership in Sales, disconnect between Corporate and field in sales and marketing.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – September 24, 2018
Brown Forman hires talented professionals with proven track record and industry contacts. The Orientation program at corporate is good, but integration within local teams is difficult and clicky, due to lack of communication of roles & responsibilities. On going training is reserved to team "favorites" as trip incentive vs specific learning experience to educate for job role. Good career for those who wish to keep quiet and stay in the box especially with harassment-bullying issues, hoping issues will resolve on own.
Job security is fine with brown-forman considering it is a worldwide company. The training program is non-existent but yet employees are expected to n
Shipping Specialist/Bottling Operator (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – July 25, 2018
The job is extremely hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter. Employees are expected 2 work overtime with no notice. Employees are expected to be qualified and trained for the jobs they are doing yet there is no training program and it's more like a learn as you go system
Unreasonable expectations with no consistent training program
Plant Production/ Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Stevenson, AL – May 30, 2018
I worked at the new stave mill at Stevenson. Al. The work was very labor intensive even at the plant supervisor level. I would stay after hours every day and help maintenance ensure all equipment was ready for the next day. As this was a salaried job no overtime was paid to me. The overall company culture was great but not a lot of opportunity to move to other facilities.
Overall god company
Very labor intensive. Very hot in summer and cold in winter.

Brown Forman is a spirits company best known for it brand Jack Daniels. It is a career focused company with great opportunities for advancement. They goal is to balance work and personal life in a positive work environment.
Had interesting challenging projects with good proffessionals ,. Had a long carrier there with opportunities. The industry is fun, the company big enough to make it challenging but small enough to be well paid.

Data Science intern (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 9, 2018
Fun, cool culture surrounding the company. Very socially concious company too and they take corporate responsibility extremley seriously. The brands are very cool and they are a responsible company when it comes to how they advertise alcohol.
Temporary Analyst (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 6, 2017
I want to work here full time but jobs are hard to come by. Very tough to get in unless you know someone or are very lucky. The temporary employees are not treated as well as salaried employees either.
In all, if you can get a salaried job here you will most likely be happy.
