Pros

Great upward mobility programs, bonuses, vacation time off, in general great people that believed in the brand.

Cons

The direct line manager was not all that great to work for, but just had to look beyond that person, to see what a good group of people worked for the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the focus on the core brands

    Pros

    Yes, the free beer is nice, Living in Colorado the best, Met some outstanding hourly employee's, Great upper management. Decent work-life balance & pay, Good benefits.

    Cons

    Most of the review's comming from Golden, Co. spot on. Middle management unbelievably bad for moral, production, etc. What a shame!!! If they sense for some reason you are a threat to their way of life "Watch Out" I seen sooooooooo much talent leave there it's not funny? Most moved on and became very valued employee's else where.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean House and Start Over. Walk around and talk to your production people. Get it back to what it use to be working for a brewery.

    If you have NO ORIGINAL THOUGHTS and are willing to forego all dignity to please your manager, by all means work here.

    Pros

    +Free Beer (although this can be deadly. If you walk around the cafeteria at any point you'll know what I mean)
    +Really good Health Insurance coverage
    +MillerCoors University
    +You get to tell all your friends you work for a Beer company
    +Opportunity to work on some really fun projects that you can relate to
    +Golden-handcuffs salaries
    +Year-end bonuses
    +CEO has good vision and strategy
    +You get to spend more money buying bigger pant sizes.

    Cons

    -Middle-management runs (and ruins) the day.
    The top-level managers (C-level) are really top notch, good people. Especially Chris, Andy, and Gavin. The individual contributors for the most part have a good work ethic and play well with others. It's the layer in between that's the problem. (Note: NO companies are run this way anymore.)
    -They talk all this fluff about encouraging feedback and asking tough questions, but really if you don't rank and file you'll really run your career at risk. (Again, this is not how top companies do things). Definitely NOT one of those "we encourage you to ask tough questions to make our business better" companies.
    -Most decisions are made by a very small group, or on an individual basis. There is zero transparency into the decision-making process below the manager level. You're supposed to "just trust the old guard."
    -Does not encourage outside/dissenting views. Unless those are from a highly paid consulting firm like BCG.
    -All it takes is one individual to dislike you and you can be let go pretty much without cause. This is usually by insecure managers afraid of their direct reports outshining them. Decisions like fire/not fire should be made on a committee basis.
    -Limited room for growth/movement unless you're part of the "good old boys" club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the book "Wisdom of Crowds." Focus and reward the employees who do the actual work. Look at 8 of 10 past reviews on here. All have similar threads.
