Too many restructures and changes
Employee (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 4, 2018
This is a nice place to work. Good work life balance, but don't expect to hold a job long here as there are constantly restructures and changes within different departments. Lost a couple good friends back in 2016 due to department changes, then my position and several others were eliminated in 2017 due to department changes again. I should have seen it coming.

Also, its a French company so the culture is a little different than you would expect. Depending what team you are on and who is your manager your experience will vary.
Pros
Allowance Stipend, Holiday breaks, happy hours
Cons
Too many changes

Great Company for a Reason
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 15, 2017
I learned a lot from this organization. They do a a great job training people to do their job great. I enjoyed the people. Management was typical...a couple good ones and a couple not so good. There's a reason they are one of the biggest spirits companies around.

Great place to start out in sales an the liquor industry
Retail Account Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 20, 2017
Great place to start out in sales and the liquor industry. The company stresses an entrepreneurial mindset but also the importance of working on a team. It is common for the CEO to talk to an entry level employee and vise versa. People are very approachable and want to help each other advance and succeed.

Great work environment; never a dull moment
Brand Management Consultant Rum & Liquors (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 19, 2016
Pernod has a great working culture, warm people and fantastic talent. The only draw back is their lack of entry level/lower level staff. They believe in internal hiring which is great to boost moral of the employees, but hard for an outsider.

Well looked after and good quality of life / work balance
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  LondonMay 16, 2016
I loved everything about this company and I was reluctant to leave. Each company within the Pernod Ricard Group differs but I was offered flexible working hours, 9-5 every day with 1 hour lunch.

They have great benefits, holidays and offer a wide range of courses to help your career. They are also very proactive about progressing your career, therefore if you see another job within the group they will happily put you through the recruitment and give you tutoring.

very fun workplace
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  joy,fun,April 21, 2016
Every hour is a pleasure. I have learnt to get a friend every day.
Management very distant from the staff, co-workers very cooperative, We formed a family.But the hardest part was the customers who claimed more that we could offer them.
I enjoyed this job because it had helped to know how important is a customer and ways to keep and recruit more day by day.
