I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Work/Life Balance
Making beer is fun
Many good and enjoyable people to work with

Cons

Tight "good ol boy" network makes it hard to move up on merit, you have to massage fragile egos.
Managers tend to be short sighted when looking at internal talent.
Too many contract workers = no buy in company "values"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seek out the driven people to replace the complacent or those who are waiting for their pension.

    Great in the beginning but gets progressively worse as you stay longer and realize that things aren't how they seem.

    Pros

    Free beer Free beer Free beer

    Cons

    Created a new sales management program (SMP) with the promise of cultivating talent but the real truth is that the only people getting promoted are the leftovers from Miller or Coors that stayed on after the joint venture. They have stayed at the company for 5+ years but lack the passion, talent, and drive to work but complain endlessly about the need to be promoted. Upper management seems to listen to them and they get promoted even though they aren't fit for the job. While the standouts from the SMP program must languish even though they are more capable and have more talent and deliver better results. This is why ABi does so well because they treasure a hard-working and capable workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop favoring the oldies that have just been sitting here waiting to be promoted and start looking into the talent pool that you claim to be so proud of.

    Pros

    Working for beer company can be lots of fun. Get to work with many cross functional teams regularly and distributors.

    Cons

    While they stress a performance culture, sometimes the wrong people are getting recognized and promoted. These people just tell people what they want to hear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to live to the same accountability you ask from your employees.
