    Current Employee - Supply Chain Manager in Copenhagen (Denmark)

    I have been working at Carlsberg full-time (more than 5 years)


    Great people with amazing work attitude. Great brands and get better every year (lots of good ideas on how to develop the brands). Fun to work: good atmosphere (e.g. bosses joke with subordinates).
    Good work-life balance and flexibility in terms of working hours.


    Salaries are below average. That is a bit better now with more focus on performance related bonuses. Non cash benefits are below average (e.g. no gym, bad quality canteen, no flex-time, few paid courses that are not Carlsberg's own).
    IT support sucks, which makes it hard to work sometimes.
    Offices are old and uninspiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparent career opportunities (know what to expect and what needs to be done to get there).
    Better IT support- not just focus on costs. Take into account the money that is wasted when a manager focuses on solving IT issues rather than doing their job.
