    Pros

    Company has big brands, good brands.

    There are good people in many middle management roles.

    Plenty of money available

    Cons

    Company has lots of big brands that are crashing due to the economy

    Company continues to think they can manage from on-high without talking to people at the ground level to truly understand what is going.

    Company is one of the most silo'ed organizations one can find.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior leadership hasn't worked since the JV. Time for a reboot. Including the CEO and CMO.

    Don't use market conditions to decide whether or not an employee should be released from the company.

    I have been working at MillerCoors

    Pros

    Most of the people that I work with have great passion for putting out a very high quality product.

    Cons

    Management from Miller has changed the company to the point where everyone feels that we are not doing the right thing or putting out a high quality product. Union mentality!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start doing the right thing and stop thinking about just money. Soon the money will all go away when we have no customers do to poor quality.

    I worked at MillerCoors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, Benefits. Most employees are friendly. Others can be evil.

    Cons

    Coworkers generally run the plant. You are basically at the mercy of how your coworkers feel about you. If they don't like you, they will find a way to get rid of you. HR believes or accepts too much of what the general worker says and usually its a fabricated story. MillerCoors has a 6 month probationary period... AND THEY USE IT. If they don't like the way you comb your hair or tie your shoes you will be terminated. Other plants may operate differently but Trenton prides itself in never having a layoff so they view termination as a better option.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to take a better look at management and not always accept the word of veteran workers and management as truthful. Needs to work closer with the employee AFTER the hiring process.

    Pros

    They have the $ to spend on programming and new ideas. Free Beer. Not micro managed.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted and process moves slow. Not everyone gets a fair chance at a promotion bc a lot of times the manager already knows who they want to hire before the job is even posted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interview process needs to ask more questions to get to know the person not all situational questions.

    Be open to the millenial sales employees' ideas because we are in the market and we are the target of most of your marketing supposedly.
