    Pros

    Get free case of beer a month

    Cons

    Insist salary employees be mobile. No raises and high focus on achieving targets for upper management bonus'. No bonus paid for 2014

    Work on employee mora

    Pros

    Free Beer and the reputation of the last "great American company."

    Cons

    Numbers driven; they no longer care about the brands it took the Busch family centuries to build.

    Pros

    If you like ownership, meritocracy, and constant change, it's the place for you. It's very dynamic, with constant learning, great and smart people, lots of career opportunities, constant growth.

    Cons

    It's not for everybody: definitely not a good life-work balance, high pressure, some politics at the highest ranks, variable compensation depends highly on very stretched targets.

    Advice to Management

    Keep constantly an eye to the market compensation.

    Pros

    If you know the right people you can move up quickly. Good benefits. Open environment works well for some people

    Cons

    The work never ends. The departments do not interact well together. The Business Travel is a nightmare to plan.

    Advice to Management

    Truly rate on performance. Let the employees know they matter. Live the principles that you tout so much instead of just writing them on the walls.

    Pros

    Opportunity for great compensation in a truly global company that provides the opportunity to build experiences across markets and functions

    Cons

    Culture is not what it seems. They preach an ideal that is only practiced when the right people are watching. The supposed meritocracy has created a self-serving culture that drives people to make decisions that are right for their careers, not the company. No work/life balance. Warped sense of how a good leader should behave.
