  1.  

    My time at Nigerian Breweries in Nigeria was an enlightening and interesting one. An eye opener to be honest.

    I worked at Nigerian Breweries as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Nigerian Breweries could be tasking but fun. You always have to be involved, ask questions, learn, put knowledge to test. I hardly had room to sit for a second without looking sloppy. There is always something to be involved with. The people there are great and the best part has to be the free food and free access to the company bars, where you get to network with all levels of management in a very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    The pay for interns is not worth writing home about. It has to be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has to pay more. Most people work a minimum of 40 hours a week, even interns, and barely earn anything of worth, especially those who are not a part of management.

    Pros

    It gives a staff the opportunity to continuously develop your skills and improve your industrial knowledge and global best practices.

    Cons

    Too much work dominated life style that tends to exclude outside company interactions. A staff has to make conscious efforts to keep friends outside the company otherwise it will be really difficult when you leave the job eventually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will be better if some room is created to encourage creativity within the "controlled' environment.
