    I worked at Molson Coors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment - open culture and leadership style. There is opportunity for cross functional development. High on Corporate Responsibility and community affairs. Compensation and benefits top quartile.

    Cons

    Tends to be a short-term view when the chips are down - cutting costs and some-times jobs to meet goals.

    Advice to Management

    Put employees before investors - don't use employee costs to balance the books

    I worked at Molson Coors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gorgeous office downtown Denver with spectacular views of the mountains and downtown. Overall, laid back environment. Superior training.

    Cons

    young folks with large salaries and little business etiquette, contract employees not included in office extra curricular activities, upper management not always following through with future project implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Should have a full time regular "Molson Coors" employee working the front in order to feel a part of the organization. First face/first impression....

    Pros

    A great deal of pride in product and business Gennuine attention to culture and vision Treats employees as family Family oriented and flexible in making things work for you

    Cons

    I love the company, but there are individual pockets of middle management that make some parts of the company unplease to work in. They can take good things like the employee satisfaction survey and use them as a blugeon to flog their employees with. Mind you, this is limited to certain pockets, the company as a whole is wonderful. Due to it's small size in the US, there really isn't a good career track.

    Advice to Management

    You message and vision are good, but there are some departments that are subverting your vision. They are producing what you ask for through bullying and threats. They make their employees smile for you with a "Beatings will continue until morale improves" mentality. Try to find those VPs that are perpetuating this.

    Pros

    Great company for category management. One of the leaders for category management and process. Won numerous awards for category management and space management.

    Cons

    I came in during the Joint Venture with Miller so it was a little tough to get going and for them to trust me with retailers and projects.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more information on what is going on with big projects, i.e. JV's. I was hired to do a job and then they didn't let me do anything, assign me a retailer or projects.
