Great people, slow to change, disorganized

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsPeople make this company; strong bond within team is a huge plus and helps when things are extremely crazy (almost always); open communication between levels of the company, as well as sales and breweries; free beer and other perks; senior management (namely Martin Roper) very smart and a good leader; a lot of work to do...which means both good opportunities (if you can find the time/work even more hours) and/or it becomes life consuming

ConsPoor internal systems and processes (both IT and people) - some attempt to upgrade; compensation is below the expected hours to work; corporate mobility is limited - big chasm between director-level and entry/mid level employees; seem to make same/similar mistakes consistently - partially due to fast pace work environment and "get it done" attitude which limits learning and revising processes for the future. Sales slightly rogue from corporate direction (very much to do with communication issues, geographical difference, and amount of work/expectations on them).

Advice to Senior ManagementReview and align company strategies with goals, metrics, and compensation for all levels of the company. When a strategy is decided (say - "Lead with Lager") don't *wink* after the fact and say a different brand is really the priority.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
