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!

    I have been working at SABMiller full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    great benefits, lovely people, employee bar, good canteen with allowance for employees

    Cons

    old style management, the office culture is archaic and not like other large employers. There is a lack of opportunities and job are given to people without being advertised. Senior management are quite happy to enjoy days out and "team building" trips. There is a big divide between management and workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop wasting money on team building activities, off site management meetings and start creating more opportunities for employees and not contractors.
