    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch

    Pros

    Available resources vs. connection to the companies business strategies; great people to work with, strong financial mindset, global footprint, etc.

    Cons

    Too much focus on short term business results, need to learn how to drive profits by selling product vs. cost cutting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace "the consumer is boss" philosophy - don't just talk about it! Need to build foundational business fundamentals and keep experienced professional in the company.

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

    Pros

    Free beer helps! Everyone who works there is motivated, professional, and personable. Ownership and growth is encouraged. The benefits and compensation package is generous and exceeds necessity.

    Cons

    In a workplace where everyone is working to get ahead and meet individual KPIs, there is a lack of teamwork across departments and often a rush to production or cut-corners on quality in reference to technologies. In addition, be prepared to work long hours and be someone who checks your email nonstop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAUSE. Plan, build, test, and repeat early and often.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits (health insurance, Be Well program payouts/incentives), 2 cases beer/month, onsite fitness, flexible work program

    Cons

    Tons of politics, they are now laying off tenured (higher paid employees) employees and instead refilling with snotty Ivy League college grads and all the experience and loyalty to the company is walking out the door. Not much control over your bonus as it's contingent on others' performance as well as yours, no salary increases (lucky if you get one at all), not much opportunity to shift between departments or move up.
    They pride themselves on flexible work programs and work/life balance, but that is subject to manager opinion (which most are old-school and if your seat isn't warm and they cannot see you, you're assumed to not be working, lack of trust). Be prepared to work extra-long hours (50-60 hours/week) and little recognition or reward for hitting KPIs and targets, especially if the company and/or your boss doesn't hit theirs.

    Pros

    Good pay if you are willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Middle management that shows no loyalty to devoted workers! When you get hurt, and you WILL, they will find a way to get rid of you and kick you to the curb!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire middle management for fleet operations from rank-and-file. Not college educated no life experience upper management drones!
