    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

    Brilliant people to work with, everyone pulls together when needed. Very flexible when comes to needing to adapt working hours

    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.

    Pros

    The company is good at promoting young talent quickly through the ranks. They make a great recession resilient product and has a young workforce

    Cons

    terrible at employee retention. High management turnover. Bonus based structure which is good it pays out, but often targets are overstretched.

    Former Employee - Director

    I worked at InBev

    Pros

    The speed of change was great (if that is what you are looking for). Very focused agenda, stick to the plan and see it through. There were great opportunities if you were young and mobile. Engagement was a priority.

    Cons

    the pace could get crazy - and as the company grew, too many processes and "alignment" needed. Slowed things down. Additional job opportunities would be scarce if you were middle aged. The company was very open about caring about young high potentials, and if you were someone who may not be identified for future roles, there was not much investment and you were considered a "blocker".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    trust your people and the decisions they make.

    Pros

    Good pay rates, Medical health cover.

    Cons

    Intimidation is the main tool used by management at inbev. Managers life within the company is between 12 and 24 months before dismisal.
    No training for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intimidation and bullying will get you nowhere. Lack of investment in your employees will cost you dearly in the long run.

    Pros

    Inbev has a Strong Culture that together with its Great Products make a Friendly environment to work.

    Cons

    There is a huge Lack of information towards the employees. Inbev is too Cash focused (products are secondary) and it makes us lose interest in the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior management should Strive for better communication with employees and promote a positive message.
