    Pros

    Get to work with enthusiastic, employees at a place that has an awesome culture. The Training process is very thorough and AB makes sure to provide you the tools and help to make sure you can succeed.

    Cons

    Not for people who are uncomfortable being social and talking to lots of people. Also you may not find out whether or not you are being granted time off until the week of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More flexibility with time off.

    Pros

    Free beer, haha. Seriously besides that, good opportunity for growth and development at a young age, managerial experience.

    Cons

    There are gaps across departments which make it difficult to move forward. Especially with upper management at times.

    Pros

    Beer. Wholesaler network. Beer. Co workers.

    Cons

    Full year bonus determined by voodoo math. Left in early 14, and AB chose not to award a portion of my bonus that was achieved. House of cards. It will soon fall.

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

    Pros

    The beer business is the greatest. Employees right out of school are treated the best. Good advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Once you are tenured, and your salary climbs, watch out. Your number is coming up. Surprising a class action suit has not been brought forward for age discrimination. Bonuses are next to impossible to attain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the 10% out, 10% new employment strategy. It's not a sustainable business strategy. All your good talent is leaving.
