    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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....

    I have been working at Molson Coors

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Molson Coors as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good working environment, nice people to work with. Beer Vouchers.

    Cons

    Change Communication from Management is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great opportunity at internal communication. Senior management are too busy at meetings which does not seem to help facilitate ongoing projects. Company resources been wasted by hiring "too many" consultants.

    I have been working at Molson Coors full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are great. The salaries are comparable to same position in other companies.

    Cons

    There are many challenges, departments tend to be "clicky", new comers not welcomed easily. Too many accounting systems in place, you would need to understand basic accounting to be able to do any job. Leadership starts from the top down, middle management afraid to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace new people and ideas. It cannot always be "your way or the highway", you hire intelligent people that are being "choked", let them breath some fresh air into an otherwise stagnate business. Put the fun back into selling beer.

    Pros

    great culture with lots of Canadian pride - beer, hockey, music
    work/life balance strongly encouraged

    Cons

    clunky IT and accounting systems with LOTS of technical issues - spent an inordinate amount of time on work-arounds and chasing down help from sub-contracted departments located on different continents - very frustrating to employees and to partners/vendors waiting for answers/information, not to mention very unproductive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    update key systems per the above comments
