    Pros

    Great start out of college. Comfortable place to call home. Management is very friendly and accomodating. Most upper management have been with the company over 10 years. Most of the professional employee base are young in the low to mid 20s but are a selection of intelligent individuals. Plenty of room to be creative with your position and present new and interesting ideas to be considered realistically by management.

    Cons

    Low training opportunities. Software and systems are out of date and unused in large business. Advancement potential is slightly lower because most managers have been there for a very long time. A Pro in the sense that people stay, a con in the sense of advancement... However, the managers now were advanced at some point as well. Biggest concern is the desire to grow the company. Labatt is below average industry growth.

    Advice to Management

    They treat employees wonderfully. All senior managers are very approachable and helpful.

    I have been working at Labatt part-time

    Pros

    A lot f opportunities within the company, sense of community, frequent events and celebrations.

    Cons

    Long hours, sometimes unpaid. Organizational culture very focus on results and sales, not so much on good service and effort. Very little room for employee feedback. Very competitive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more attentive to the employees that care about offering a good customer service, try to see beyond the numbers. Reward hard work rather than results achieved at all costs.

  6. I was working as an HR administrator at Labatt. Excellent workplace, great work culture and work life balance.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere
    Incredibly smart people
    You are close to top execs & company strategy everyday
    Small team means little red tape
    Can have fast advancement if you show result
    Chance to really own your own projects - given lots of responsibility
    Meritocracy
    Good perks & contacts in industry
    Great industry

    Cons

    Extremely heavy workload - 70+ hours/week
    Cheap company, bad IT
    Low retention amongst employees
    low pay vs industry
    lots of people 'managing up'
    Intense environment can bring out the worst in people
    Too much time spent on protecting your budget and process
    Tough environment if you fall out of favour with a senior exec

    Advice to Management

    Pay needs to move up
    Care about employee work/life - no need for bells & whistles like yoga class posters, actually respect workloads and don't intentionally leave vacancies open just to hit a salary budget number
    Senior management needs to consider employee morale & stress level when changing their minds every 30 seconds

    Benefits are good. Good bunch of people that care about the business. Some room for improvement.

    No work life balance. Bonus structure is a joke. Pay is not good....can easily make 12-15k more elsewhere.

    Culture is terrible.....you can thank Brazil for that.
