I worked at Boston Beer

Pros

Its a good job for people coming out of school. The company does a great job of teaching you how to sell in a professional manner

Cons

You have no work to life balance.You will work every weekend in the fall and winter. They will dangle a promotion in front of you for years to get you to work 70hr weeks.Many employees are not paid business expenses when they leave the company. Overall, I wouldnt plan on staying with the company for more than a couple of years.

    I worked at Boston Beer

    Pros

    Independence - be your own boss
    Meeting people if you are young
    if you like a party atmosphere
    like being in the city
    every participates in national sales meeting even if out of state

    Cons

    "work hard play hard" motto means exactly that. You are expected to put in a ton of overtime: nights, weekends, holidays and even 99% of your lunches
    No managerial support
    No management communications even when it pertains to your job function
    high turnover rate
    you are expendable at any moment in time
    benefits could be a lot better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    curb turnover rate
    reach down to the low man on the totem pole

    No opinion of CEO
