    Pros

    I've worked in APBS for 7 years and this is a great place for junior employee to learn the FMCG business.

    You are probably under paid versus peers who have move around FMCG company, with similar years of experience.

    Overlook talent retention program.

    I worked at Asia Pacific Breweries full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    APB has great products and brands, it's a company that truly believes in building brands for the long term, and there is strong camaraderie between team-mates.

    Cons

    Personal politics sometimes get in the way of decision-making, and having a more process-based orientation would help in some instances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward loyal staff by listening to their views and offering career development opportunities.

    I have been working at Asia Pacific Breweries full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Passionate people, strong camaraderie, invests in brand management and route to market excellence. Fun loving colleagues who become friends quickly. Reasonably good benefits.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance with very long hours, basic salary nothing much to shout about, weak talent pipelining, conservative when computing long term investments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay less attention to shareholder politics, listen more to the ground and focus more on doing what's right and sustainable for the business.

    I worked at Asia Pacific Breweries

    Pros

    Good pay for a short period of work. Good opportunity to pick up sales and customer relations experience. You get the occasional treat from the boss too haha

    Cons

    Long working hours under outdoor conditions. Pressure to meet sales targets and you will have to help out with the moving of stock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worth a look if you are looking for a part-time job. Good remuneration for anyone who can only work for a short period of time
