    Pros

    It's pretty remarkable that I have a job that encourages me expense beer at bars across the city. Working as a Brand Activation Manager is a fun line of work, but lacks promising growth potential.

    Cons

    While I enjoy my line of work, I feel like I am unknown to the folks at AB in St. Louis.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise AB Corporate to reconsider their marketing ploys and consider what will truly effect sales patterns in their different markets

    Pros

    Benefits are great
    Hours aren't bad
    Free Beer
    Commissions are great

    Cons

    Management was horrible
    Unrealistic expectations
    Nothing but turn over because management would not change their ways from 10 years ago

    Advice to Management

    Listen to sales representatives that are out in the field daily! Be realistic in your expectations

    Pros

    Great networking and leadership opportunities for young professionals. Must be seasoned in public communication.

    Cons

    A lot of travel. Can be socially exhausting at times and takes a strong motivation to study beer.

    The size of the company sometimes makes it difficult for necessary changes to take place.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    People with absolutely no experience can make a very high base salary and easily obtain an inflated job title. You will get experience, but it is trial by fire.

    Cons

    Workload is insane. Management is insane. Hours are insane. Employee turnover is insane. Cramming hundreds of people into a temporary office is insane. There is little to no training, you guessed it, insane. Bonus has not paid out for the past 5 years. Stock option plan is crazy- options don't vest for 5 years from when you get them, think about that. Average employee lifespan is approx 2 years. No one is going to get those options. 401K plan matching vests after 3 years. Anything and everything here is designed to screw everyone who is not a stock owner. The people at the top have so much to gain by lying and getting you to join this place. And then you're screwed because you have a 2 year commitment on your relocation and signing bonus. Beware!!

    Advice to Management

    Your stock price is soaring, you're rich! You're doing it at the expense of all the people who you are crushing in your machine. That won't work long term, and at some point you will have to pay the piper. Might be in a year, might be in 5, but karma is coming for you, and it's gonna be exciting watch the Death Star implode.

    Pros

    AB is a great company to work for and full of challenges. Laid back environment but hard work is a priority. Pay is excellent if you're an FTE

    Cons

    Contractors work harder than FTE and are paid with peanuts. You can contract forever and they won't offer permanent job. Even if they feel you're a great asset.

    Advice to Management

    Realize when you have a quality contractor and give them the stability they deserve. Or at least up the contractor pay to make us feel appreciated. We are paid crappy and we can't even get free cases of beer??? All take and no give
