    Don't follow their own ethics and values

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe good people are great. Environment can be fun at times.

    ConsNo loyalty to employees. Claim to have ethics and values, but don't represent them. Bullying others from certain staff is acceptable. Diversity and inclusion are just buzz words and not adhered to or followed. No recognition for certain positions when you go above and beyond.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust because you play the politic game well does not mean that you can bully other employes. Follow your own ethics code.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Brands

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsLots of dedicated employees, on site medical and exercise facilities. Beer store on premises, ok benefits, co. match to 401k

    ConsThis is a classic case of how not to do a JV. Five years later and still operating on two legacy SAP systems. Workload is not reasonable, performance rating system is a joke. No longer a fun place to work. Most of the director level management lacks the basics of the beer business. MC upper management has not addressed retention issues.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to work, but they seem to be very arbitrary when it comes to retaining good talent

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsProjects do not linger... their PM's aggressively move projects forward

    ConsManagement seem to be a long way away, so decisions to allow a great resource to leave seems to not make sense

    Outdated Technology

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company to work for with a ton of potential. Potential lies in the fact that the company (the JV, that is) is still fairly young and there are plenty of "kinks" to work out with being a new company. This is a pro for people that are driven and focused on implementing efficiency and process improvements. There are plenty to be had!

    ConsThe outdated use of various systems throughout procurement and financial reporting.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    MillerCoors is a good beer company to work with many benefits and you get to make beer for a living!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe culture is open with interaction to upper management is available through the local pubs for those that can converse over a beer. The relocation benefits can be very good if you are the right level. Performance management has gotten better over the years. You also get free beer every month!

    ConsThe culture is mixed as there are still 2 cultures within the organization after the Joint Venture. Different factions have different values and there are definitely factions within the organization still fighting for power. There is still an "us" and "them" mentality that exists and it depends on which city you are based in. There are not enough people in operations and the breweries are struggling to make ends meet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your high performers what they are worth before they leave the company for a competitor.

    Poor quality company.

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with in Golden and at the various breweries.

    ConsLegacy Miller people who are in management positions are horrendously unethical. They are very biased against the legacy Coors people who are unlucky enough to have to report to them. Lying on an employee's review is very common. Decent raises are given to the manager's Miller direct reports while the Coors people receive the crumbs.
    Overall, very low quality Miller people are in management roles. Favoritism abounds. Definitely a good old boy atmosphere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo work for an ethical company for a period of time and see how thinks could be done. Don't be afraid to fire your good old boy VPs who are all style and no substance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
