    Amazing work environment... but you have to be willing to work

    I worked at Boston Beer full-time

    Pros

    BBC is an environment where you can learn and advance your career every single day. The org structure is flat. Everyone is approachable. Those that succeed here are those that are willing to ask questions, get involved and show a high work ethic. It's not for everyone.

    Cons

    If you're interested in working here just to get free beer and hang out, you won't enjoy the experience. Work/life balance can be challenging. Priorities shift. You MUST be able to multitask and manage up. Prepare for your opinions and comments to be challenged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must address the comp gap.

    I have been working at Boston Beer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely an amazing experience! The job is dynamic, very active, hands on and impactful. The management team truly values the employees and supports them constantly especially with training. Everyone shares a passion to do their best.

    Cons

    There is none that I can see. Yes it is customer service and at times the amount of visitors does get to be a big amount but at the end of the day it's worth it and everyone on the team supports each other.

    I have been working at Boston Beer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great culture, training program and peers. Tons of interactive employee engagement. Asked to provide feedback monthly in anonymous surveys to better the company. Upward mobility. Lot's of sales incentives to earn extra money.

    Cons

    My local culture does not reflect the companies culture. Work/life balance is off. Very little exposure to management other than who I directly report to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When promoting people, consider that they may not be a good fit for managing others. While we have a no retaliation rule, people are still afraid to speak negatively of their direct manager. We need an anonymous way to better manage our managers.

    Pros

    Very family-oriented, the co-workers are great, and the benefits are very affordable.

    Cons

    There is no lack of overtime, take that as you will. There is some lack of communication but with all the company growth going on it is almost to be expected.
