    Pros

    - Decent Pay
    - Work environment was generally nice
    - Workplace safety is ongoing and improving

    Cons

    - Tension between various departments
    - Lots of office politics/dissatisfaction from permanent union members
    - Unionized so you can find yourself on contract for a while
    - Not a lot of encouragement for growth (due to union)
    - Shift work

    Advice to Management

    During general meetings - allow for more discussion as opposed to marketing to the people. Change the unionized work-place attitude and environment. Give people accountability and encourage them to do more. Hiring and letting go of trained contract workers may be short-sighted.

    Pros

    Who wouldn't want to work for a beer company? Kegs in the lunch room, bbq's in the summer, launch events that have a lasting impression! Profit margins are excellent, bonuses are generous and its a very lively fun company overall.
    Pay, benefits and bonuses are excellent.

    Cons

    Delving deeper into specific departments, you see a wide disparity in the way each one is treated. Some are demi-god like and revered, while others are stepped on such that others can succeed and attain their targets. There is a fair amount of deceit as well in their relations with import partners such that relationships and budgets can be maintained. At the end of the year however, numbers do not lie. Problems are not resolved at the root, rather they focus on the sales figure at the expense of operational costs.
    Their succession planning is also peculiar, some very drastic moves made that have not panned out typically. Mind you some moves have been genius but its seldom. Certain 'leaders' were more tyrannical than inspiring which has caused a huge ripple through some previously well-run teams. One such person would go so far to demand your personal contact information such that you can be reached at all hours of the night such that urgent requests are addressed immediately. Work-life imbalance was a major factor in recent turnovers.
    Many external hires led to discontent among employees who were there for a good portion of their careers.

    Pros

    Iconic company with instant brand recognition, a real gem of company to work for in terms of being able to say you work at Molson.

    Cons

    People. Unfortunatley, Molson doesn't recognize it's greatest strength and continues to downsize their best resource.

    Advice to Management

    People made this company. John Molson started with a vision of brewing great beer and hiring the right people to make those decisions. Stop outsourcing and nickle and diming every transaction. Bring back the soul of the company, by treating people with dignity and respect, and for goodness sakes fix the IT processes! Having physical IT people in each location is HUGE.

    Pros

    Flexible benefits - buy and sell holidays and product allowance, sabbaticals, flexible working to ensure work/life balance. Great culture with the company values well communicated by the senior management team and understood by the employees

    Cons

    Nothing springs to mind at the moment - they had done a lot of work gaining feedback from and communicating plans to employees

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

    Cons

    Change Communication from Management is very poor.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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 people.... Working in a vibrant industry

    Cons

    My feeling is that people don't care as they did.. It always felt like it was an hierarchical and political environment which seemed to manifest itself in everybody looking out for the backstabber around every corner.

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive. Try and move away from a perceived them and us culture. People express fear of job loss so often that many just keep their heads down and become invisible. As leaders you don't have to be liked but you do have to be respected.. To do that people want you to be more visible.. This should start the new CEO, who it feels like is just passing through on route to the next job versus Dave Perkins who appeared to care so much more about a great Canadian business and the people within it
