    I have been working at Monarch Beverage full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very Competitive Salary and above average benefits. The employee welfare programs such as the onsite clinic and workout facility are second to none. Monarch seems to legitimately care about the personal well-being of their employees. Can be a very fast-paced and rewarding work environment at times.

    Cons

    On the Operations side there aren't many opportunities for advancement, so if advancement is your intention, start in Sales. It's very difficult to move from Operations to Sales. The culture is stale and resistant to change. Communication between departments doesn't exist. At times it feels like everyone is pulling in opposite directions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the way. Give us direction and not just point to the missions statement. There are some really smart and energetic people who could move mountains if we just gave them the opportunity. Senior Management doesn't seem to trust those below them and so as a result getting things accomplished is tedious and often much more difficult than it should be. Your inability to trust those beneath you stifles creativity.

    I worked at Monarch Beverage

    Pros

    Decent company with a good culture. Not a lot of places where training involves drinking dozens of types of beer and wine! They take care of their employees pretty well.

    Cons

    The position I took was as a merchandiser, which equates to traveling stock-boy. I applied to the sales department hoping to get a position in sales, but this was their "entry level" position to get into sales. I just wasn't ready to spend 2-3 years stacking beer on pallets in the stinky back rooms of WalMart to get a position in sales....some guys do it. More power to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't mask merchandising as a sales job, let the potential employees know a bit more about the daily grind, and be a little more honest about the time period needed to advance. I was told 6 months, and saw merchandisers that had been sticking beer for 3 years+ with no advancement into actual sales.

    Pros

    The benefits offered are some of the best to be found in any industry. Open communication with senior management is always available.

    Cons

    Lots of hours committed outside of normal work hours.
    Behind the curve big time in technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give sales reps more technology to utilize.

    Pros

    Great benefits, beautiful new building. Very good car program, and very nice that you get a company cell phone so you are not using your personal #.

    Cons

    No potential for advancement - only those who are in the bosses favor will have any chance, and even then the people in place are ineffective at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what your employees are really saying - the $$ is very low compared to competitors, and there is very little work/life balance.
