    I worked at MillerCoors

    Pros

    None. They don't care about whats important when it comes to brand representation and taking care of their people. I was hired as a manager to re-develop a team and they fought every suggestion.

    Cons

    Don't care about their people. Also, they are cheap. They offered me $20K LESS than my current salary when negotiations started. What an insult. I'm an expert in my industry and this was the worst client I ever worked for. The females are very caddy and unprofessional, as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who actually know what they are doing, and have the experience and numbers to back it up. Then, when they make small suggestions on how to make the team better, don't reject them because you're too cheap. You have a quarterly sales incentive worth $7K for reps, but want to pay the people actually out representing your brand way below market average? Thats why I quit: because you refused to give me the small amount of resources I needed to do my job well. I left your company because it was clear that those above me were less concerned about representing the brand, and more concerned with their personal lives and gossip. Treating your employees poorly will result in low morale which leads to inefficiency and decreased productivity in your business. That BUSINESS 101. Get it together. Pay good people what they are worth and it will be worth it in the log run.

    I worked at MillerCoors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing brands. Amazing work that people are doing. Fun industry. Beer is a cool place to work.

    Cons

    Lots of backstabbing. No real support and the organization treats people poor so they leave. They are losing a lot of top talent and they wonder why they have problems with results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking about things you say are true but aren't. For example, there is a lot of talk about diversity but you all are losing diverse talent left and right.

    Manager of Customer Service rude, disrespectful, and plays favorites. Process leads get paid overtime and are never at work on the weekends just on call.

    I have been working at MillerCoors

    Pros

    Free beer, not much other than that

    Cons

    Work life balance is not respected - lots of unpaid weekend work and long hours. Senior leadership is disconnected from the real issues. Business is declining - craft beer is taking away volume and there is no real plan to address volume loss, besides trying to make overpriced products that aren't nearly as good as the craft offerings in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take action on the suggestions and attempts by your teams to drive change. Make an attempt to make some high quality offerings to compete with craft - calling Miller Lite a "quality" beer, come on it's watered down, flavorless and not anywhere near what craft brewers are offering. Summer Shandy is loaded with high fructose corn syrup and fake lemonade - make something authentic.

  7. Although the company has great products, rich history, and good pay it is way behind the times.

    I have been working at MillerCoors (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great products and a huge organization with a variety of jobs. Pay is at or above similar companies in Food and Beverage industry. Free beer.

    Cons

    Company is way behind the times. Huge disconnects between departments. Lacks strategic vision. Too many employees are still negative about the formation of MillerCoors rather than working together to move the business forward. Seems like this ship will keep moving forward since its the second largest beer company in U.S., although it seems no one knows where the ship is going. Overall sales continue to drop year after year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on getting all employees on-board with MillerCoors and stop hanging onto the past. Implement a better corporate strategy that translates to better management of product portfolio.

  8. Soulless, backstabbing employees

    Former Employee - Category Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at MillerCoors full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fun industry and great brands (but not market leaders).

    Cons

    A few years ago they hired over 20+ catmans and then fired half of them after a year or two because we we're matching management expectations. Employees will throw you down the well to save their skins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and not all the noise from others. Have faith in them and their abilities. Don't let me go immediately. Need to cultivate talent and "slash and burn".

    I have been working at MillerCoors

    Pros

    Great people to work with in Golden and at the various breweries.

    Cons

    Legacy Miller people who are in management positions are horrendously unethical. They are very biased against the legacy Coors people who are unlucky enough to have to report to them. Lying on an employee's review is very common. Decent raises are given to the manager's Miller direct reports while the Coors people receive the crumbs.
    Overall, very low quality Miller people are in management roles. Favoritism abounds. Definitely a good old boy atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go work for an ethical company for a period of time and see how thinks could be done. Don't be afraid to fire your good old boy VPs who are all style and no substance.

  10. Petty

    I have been working at MillerCoors

    Pros

    Great entry level pay, expense account, vehicle expense reimbursement for sales team.

    Cons

    Petty manager. You won't get promoted based on your numbers but how well you politic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote performance. After all you are a sales organization. Our sales team was told flat out by the Director of Sales Development "I don't care if your the top sales rep if we don't like your your not going to last". This is just like high school! Now you know why your sales programs keep failing.

    My managers pet had been promoted to team lead even though she lacks a college education and basic MS Office skills. WHAT A JOKE!

    Slow company with aging, negative people

    I worked at MillerCoors

    Pros

    Branding is exciting

    Beer case allowance and headquarters bar are nice

    Offices and facilities are nice

    History is interesting

    Cons

    South African culture permeates the top and is not effective.

    Old people in jobs filled by college hires in similar companies makes for poor future comparison for eager young employees.
