    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Heineken full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great career prospects with personal development high on the agenda. A company that embraces equality across all types of employees and gives you the opportunity to be the best you can be. Forward thinking business with sustainability at the heart of everything they do.

    Cons

    If this is a downside, you must work hard and contribute to the team results. The rewards are great if you perform. If you are looking for an easy ride then look elsewhere. This is a hospitality business so is not 9-5 by any means.
