Pros

Other than the free beer - A lot of good people work in the field making the numbers everyday. They know how to market their product to their audience.

Cons

Planning, planning, planning - This took several months and they kept changing the process every year! Way too many consultants selling them on new ways to plan!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Selling beer is local - trust your local marketing and sales teams to meet the goals that you give to them!

    Pros

    If you think of something new to do that will add benefit / value - it's pretty much always "let's do it" as long as you've got the right proposal and rationale.
    Delivery is high on the agenda - there aren't many people who can hide in this business.
    Feedback is given and not hidden - you know when you're doing well (and not so well). It's refreshing being open.
    The beer clearly helps!

    Cons

    Still getting to grips with how to operate as a global company (ways of working, the art of swift and positive collaboration, who does or doesn't make the decisions).
    Often too many stakeholders need aligning - can sometimes lead to over complication. Sometimes less is more...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seeing more personal accountability (and consequence) for people development would be great. We've got loads of great people with strong technical skills, however the 'how' is just as important as the 'what'.
