  1.  

    One of the best setup to work for, Bud as a brand is very flamboyant. DPC is really great.

    Pros

    Free beers, great culture, Get to go to the best music events in the region, meet artists, planning etc etc

    Cons

    yet to explore the global possibilities for employees. Not too sure about the way of operations/ policies- system management in joint ventures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more programs for individualistic approach

    Pros

    Great company culture for highly motivated individuals. Everything is results driven. If you perform you will be compensated and given the ability to switch roles frequently. Lots of perks associated with the products. (free beer)

    Cons

    The competitive results driven culture is not for anyone. They are always hiring young motivated people and they will gladly replace you if you are not performing to their level.

    I have been working at InBev full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very strong performance culture (not only the usual words - facts!).
    This is a company for people who like to set a challenge, achieve it and bring results. Very casual company, no blabla, just do it. Upper management is extremely accessible and no politics.
    You can make career in this company !

    Cons

    Performance culture is from the outside sometimes seen as aggressive. You do not always have all the resources that you need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue in the same direction. If more European companies would have this management style, there wouldn't be a crisis.

    I worked at InBev

    Pros

    Fast changing environment, new and more demanding challenges on a regular basis - you really need to keep up with the pace or you just wont cope and either leave or "be restructured"

    Great financial rewards (I was at Director level when we were maxing out on results)

    Great development opportunities - not in a formalised way but "on the job" / "sink or swim" stuff which I appreciate isn't for everyone.

    Cons

    Unless you have the right boss, work / life balance can be a joke.

    Development can be to other roles that are outside of your comfort zone which can obvioulsy be a good thing but sometimes the leap is too far;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep driving the share price.
    Provide more opportunities to non-Brazilians
    Change the formula for Bud in Europe - it is cr;p

    Former Employee - Director Human Resources in Moscow (Russia)

    I worked at InBev

    Pros

    Great industry, lots of fun at times. Very focused senior team that is willing to stick with the plan. Tons of learning opportunities to take advantage of. Results driven - can also be a "con".

    Cons

    Sometimes, those in charge would decide on the fly without all the facts. Very fast paced and that kind of environment is not for everyone. No recognition if you are not one of the chosen ones or if you are not Brazilian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so ready to toss out solid performers. Not everyone will be a VP. Additionally, take care of the people.
