    I have been working at HEINEKEN USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company in a middle of turnaround, and on the right path. Great people and culture. Re-writing the rules to win in beer industry. Recently embarked on identifying our company purpose "why are we here" kind of stuff. Very motivating.

    Cons

    Sometimes trying to do everything all at once. Some leaders have been in place awhile and need to step up or move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High performance culture means making some tough calls on choice and people. Keep up the balance of this high performance orientation with concern for well being of people. It means a lot.

    Pros

    Great perks and tools are part of the job. On/Off premise some of the perks : Car, all technology, expense account, VIP access to events.

    Cons

    Region and zone directors give to much power to the local market manager and disregard any feedback from the local sales team. Dirty politics can get in the way of your career easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Is no use to share any feedback since nothing will be done. The company employee survey is a joke.

    Super smart and supportive management on the Heineken Americas team. They really empower you to do your best and are not overly directive.

    The business (in beer in general) is a tough market, so full time jobs are just sparse right now.
