    I have been working at Molson Coors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Managers have an open door policy
    - The Beer industry is an ever changing atmosphere with lots of competition which makes every day a challenge.

    Cons

    Sometimes we are pulled in a lot of different directions but that is common across this field in many other jobs.

    I have been working at Molson Coors full-time

    Pros

    General questions about the industry and certain problems one may face, predictable yet still allowing for creativity

    Cons

    Very focused on what's on paper and the concrete requirements rather than the person they are interviewing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open minded.

    Pros

    Interesting people to work with, definitely lots of challenges and there is an opportunity to learn a lot about the business, fairly good salaries and benefits.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, great at talking but not great at executing projects, don't have too high expectations of career advancement - way too often they hire from outside, long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's start investing in real improvement solutions and start acting

    We talk about a great vision & culture, we've let the targets kill our character.

    Pros

    Great industry, nothing better than working for the history that Molson implies. Very compelling vision, listen to our senior leadership's vision and you'll be ready to move mountains. Free beer. Lots of promise. The talk is everything you will ever want in a company. Lots of challanges.

    Cons

    We're become hypacritical in our actions. We're panicing to hit our long range targets and looking for leaders to blame. Vancouver Brewery is the worst culture I've ever come across in my career. Top two leaders at the brewery are isolated have a great format to close us down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that we're beyond our ability to hit the 2012 BHAG. Close Vancouver down, you'll never recover from the past 5-years. Make the decision of rather your operations mean anything to you or put us out of our misary and out source production to the cheapest producer ... remember as P Swinburn said in Vancouver 'we're a marketing company, anyone can make beer'.

    I have been working at Molson Coors

    Pros

    Definitely allows employee's to achieve a work life balance, pays above average and bonuses have been great the past couple years.

    Cons

    As much as we try to break down silos, they still exist and they unfortunately hold us back from excelling. Teams are not treated equally and this is a very glaring omission by senior management.

    Pros

    Free beer, young, fun co workers, good perks, connected to music and sports, passionate employees, respected company

    Cons

    Low pay vs. other consumer packaged goods companies, political, not many opportunities to advance, too many senior leaders not qualified, very poor work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice for the leadership is to listen to the employees and not just say you are going to listen because it is the right thing to say
