A Reminder of What I Don't Want in a Job

  • Career Opportunities
  • Comp & Benefits
  • Senior Management

I worked at Anheuser-Busch full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Casual environment, able to meet some good people to work with, and monthly beer.... If you think I would say tools given to employees as a pro?? THINK AGAIN

Cons

Way too many levels of approval needed to make one decision, slow to react on important needs, bonuses are dangled in front of you but are structured not to be met. Bully front line, mid level management, and possibly Director level too. Scorned/jaded peers due to constant reprimands and no praise. The only way to make it in the cut throat environment is to become "friendly" with different management levels. It's a shame really- it is one thing to see the commercials that convey nostalgia and American way but to know the working environment is more like the prohibition era when alcohol, sex and group clicks was a way of the times to survive. Good ol' boy practices still strong and visible in many ways.

Advice to Management

Where there is smoke there is fire. Listen to your employees..... The ones out in the field. If there is a common thread of concern..... There may actually be a concern. Just because a manager/director and above is liked for their personality at St. Louis doesn't mean they are effective at leading people in the field; those are the ones who feel invincible and can't be touched. Many high potential employees have left and moved on to companies that VALUE them. Eventually competitive edge will be lost when new high po's choose not to take a risk on working at the company. Good luck.
