Group Manager (Current Employee)
Cartersville, GA

ProsWorking at InBev provides many valuable lessons in how NOT to run a business.

ConsA shoddy, third-rate operation on every level. The U.S. plants have become disgusting and dangerous places to work under InBev, as safety and sanitation are not part of the cost-cutting culture.

Senior management holds its employees in contempt, yet wonders why no one is "engaged." The reasons for the mass exodus taking place now as the economy improves seems to be truly lost on them, despite nickel and diming employees since the takeover (the ones who haven't been fired, that is), right down to passing along the $50 a year fee to manage your 401K account.

Lights are kept turned off in all office areas, and in many parts of the plants as a rule.

The culture of "Meritocracy" is a farce. Bonus payouts are not based on extraordinary performance, they are based on narrowly defined targets, set at the beginning of the year, and don't seem to be much more than a mirage to keep employees chasing after pay that the old A-B would have already distributed in merit increases over the past 2 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs a stockholder in several competing companies, let me just say: please don't change a thing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
