    Pros

    Above average pay and benefits.
    A lot of free beer and happy hour's

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch InBev part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in the tour center was great because we get to talk to people from all over the world every day.

    Cons

    The management is a little shaky and they make the wrong decisions sometimes. They don't listen to the front of house staff on what decisions need to be made based off of things that happen daily and they don't think through logistics of what the front of house employees ask for.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your bartenders, servers, hosts, food runners, cooks, and dishwashers. Spend the money if it needs to be spent and stop bandaging things together and hoping that it will work.

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time

    Pros

    They compensate you extremely well. You get 48 free beers a month. If you fit the culture and are a workaholic, you will do well within the company.

    Cons

    50-60+ hour work weeks. Management emphasizing sales and strategy organizations over IT and business services. With that lack of emphasis, come lack of resources and high demands from internal customers.

    Pros

    People that you work with are great and free beer

    Cons

    Employer favors younger generation so if you are right out of college you are good.

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Anyone who loves beer would jump at the chance to work for the largest beer company in the world! I mean your job is to sell great times with friends and loved ones. Monthly Beer Day is always a great day, at least 2cases of beer to take home. A-B InBev is the big dog, the undisputed leader in sales and popularity.

    Cons

    A-B, the all American maker of Budweiser is no longer American owned and the shift from customer service has been replaced with a colder, numbers driven emphasis that now forces sales reps to focus less often on the true needs and wishes of their retailers/clients. Its sad to me that the company has gotten so huge that customer service seems to have taken the back seat.
    Part of the culture is to never be satisfied with results, this is a hard one for me because I have put so much blood, sweat, and tears into my time yet, I'm not supposed to feel that is enough?
    There's more to write but too little time....my frustrations have overwhelmed me here, and it makes me sad.

    Advice to Management

    SAP Program may be great for the company's bottom line, but it sure is messy for those of us trying to make it work at store level.

    Pros

    Is a big company, and they are around the world and they have a good team.

    Cons

    Their structure salary is not good and if you want to receive more money, you need to move inside the company.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to work in a big company, in the supply chain area, because I have a hard knowledge in supply chain area.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time

    Pros

    Great perks, free tickets to concerts, games, free beer

    Cons

    - Poor management style, everything is a "fire drill"
    - Old school boys club-- every senior manager is male, sexist comments prevalent
    - Too much emphasis placed on hours worked vs working smartly
    - Bureaucratic, inefficient
    - Unpleasant workplace, everyone is negative

    Advice to Management

    - Actually pay out bonuses. Celebrate small wins. Stop focusing on tedious minutiae and instead focus on growing the business.
