    I worked at Heineken full-time

    Pros

    - Some of the best people I've ever worked with - People at analyst/ manager level are hard working and very rarely do you need to pick up the slack - Fun company events - Free beer :)

    Cons

    - Senior leadership didn't seem in touch with the level of work needed for certain tasks which caused additional stress and ridiculous deadlines - Some teams were extremely cliquey - Certain management were out right rude and disrespectful (but I hear they have moved on now so hopefully this is resolved).
