    Pros

    Strong CEO & management team
    Amazing brands and therefore lots of fun experiences
    "Legendary" purpose unleashes memorable opportunities
    Global company opens up interesting travel and best practice sharing opps
    Emphasis on employees first before other stakeholders
    "Family" company feeling
    Many moments to step up and show your leadership capabilities
    "Challenger" mentality gives everyone at all levels a voice, encourages you to speak up
    Transparency mindset
    Fair pay & benefits

    Cons

    Company continues to find the right balance between being a fun place to work and driving a performance culture. Much better on the performance dimension than years ago but still making progress. Also, the move from a single-brand company to a portfolio company has generated complexity. The company is working to simplify for the front-lines. It's better than it has been -- but it's still a journey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it simple. Drive clear agreement at the leadership team levels to make execution easier for the teams below.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Heineken USA is fast paced, challenging, welcoming and educational. Great connections are formed within the company and there is opportunity and encouragement to diversify within roles and within the organization, including eligibility for international opportunities with the right skill sets.
    There are always fun events open to employees including every Thursday Happy Hours at the bar in the Lobby and even opportunities to attend major events like the US Open, Coachella, and many more major brand events.
    The brands are fun, interesting and world renowned. From personal experience, I don't mind feeling overwhelmed from time to time because I love the brands, feel close to the people i work with, and feel a dedication not only to the company, and my coworkers, but really feel like part of the Heineken family. When someone is a good fit here, it is not uncommon for them to build and develop an entire career with vast and diverse experience.

    Cons

    Expect to be stretched the majority of the time. As a relatively small organization withing the US, Heineken USA expects and demands a lot from its employees.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, especially for a beer company. Very open and honest communication especially from the Management Team. They tell it like it is and don't fluff up the company image. Awesome benefits and competitive pay. Very much into training and certifications, and even promotions if you're the lucky few.

    Cons

    Lots of movement within the company and lots of company reorgs can cause confusion of responsibilities. Some people let go that shouldn't be let go. Work loads tend to get ridiculous when there's a reorg.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you're going to change, change for the better, not for what sounds good. Make sure that not only are the lower employees on board, but the middle managers as well, we're talking Directors and Senior Directors.

    Very family oriented. Bends over backwards for their employees. Great benefits! Everyone is very friendly and a lot of fun to work with.

    Cons

    Restructures a lot. (about every 3 year). Work Life balance is a focus but the work doesn't allow for that.
