    I worked at Anheuser-Busch

    Pros

    Anheuser-Busch is a great company to work for. They are very open to your suggestions and pay very well.

    Cons

    Anheuser-Busch is a very cut-throat industry. They do not like when you fail at certain tasks. Some times you must be willing to take a verbal lashing to succeed.

    Free beer once a month, great health insurance, some people are nice.

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Heat and a/c are still allowed for employees

    Cons

    Cultish
    Unfriendly to women and minorities
    Horrible leadership at most levels, but especially at the top
    Report record earnings but don't pay bonuses to employees
    Promotion prospects are limited for Americans above a certain level
    Horrific work/life balance
    Screaming in meetings is the norm --- it goes way beyond "the challenging" atmosphere promised

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sell to someone that can grow the business, and cares more about quality
    Stop destroying iconic American brands
    Vendors are consumers too; stop treating them like crap
    Live the 10 principles, don't just spew them out when it makes a good sound bite
