    I have been working at New Holland Brewing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great team, great beer, great atmosphere. I can not say enough good things! I absolutely love my job and company. The love spreads far outside of Michigan. Truly one of the best beers I have had and one of the best companies I have worked for. Owners, management, brewers, and sales all have their heads on straight and love to sling out heady beer!

    Cons

    The only downside maybe the overall awesomeness! There are no cons that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! Happy people around!

    Cons

    - Room for advancement
    - Lower pay than I expected
    - Managers should have more accountability
    - Unprofessional behavior exemplified by much of the waiting staff when serving customers

    Pros

    People are cool. Servers and bartenders acquire thick wallets.

    Not very professional. Middle managers need a lot of work.

    Very poor leadership.

    I worked at New Holland Brewing

    Pros

    Great beer, pub atmosphere at brewpub.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership. 1/2 the partner team does very little work and uses the company as their own person party place. Critical advice is not wanted or tolerated. Culture of fear has taken hold because good hard working employees who care are let go if they complain about working conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in the mirror, the low morale at the company is a relfection of leadership. Nobody enjoys working in an atmosphere of fear.

    I have been working at New Holland Brewing

    Pros

    Small company but poised for growth
    Good fringe benefits (at our restaurant)
    Management has an open-door policy
    A great group of people to work with
    Fun, casual, low-key atmosphere

    Cons

    Disconnect between two locations even though they are less than 5 miles apart
    Senior leadership in some departments is lacking
    Too much growth too fast

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and take care of things before looking for more growth. Your employees are a great, loyal bunch of people that feel undervalued - focus more on us than on the "next big thing".
