    I worked at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive and great when you're in your 20's.

    Cons

    Everything else.
    Sexism. Racism. This is a #metoo ticking timebomb. Pro-Trump bs. Your mental health will suffer. You will start to question why you went to a good university (when most of your managers have associates degrees or went to Kentucky/West Virginia/some off brand state school and can barely write a coherent sentence).

    This company has a TOXIC culture. I didn't realize the extent of the toxicity until I left and worked elsewhere.

    As a woman in the field, I was called every name in the book, laughed out of rooms, and consistently doubted and belittled for being a woman (at the formative age of 23...) AB's culture is reductive -- both management and independent distributors view women as promotional models incapable of leading or making high-level decisions. I was managed by uneducated men who had no perspective on motivating or developing people. It was degrading.

    If you have a choice, don't put yourself through this bs. You deserve better.

    Advice to Management

    Oof. Where to start?
    The good old boys club act is tired. It's only a matter of time before #metoo blows the lid off of this company.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent company, great benefits. Top brands

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre, new management is young and very inexperienced. Upper management has decided to give the reigns to outsiders and inexperienced managers.

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck. This industry has changed dramatically over the last 10years. Management needs to be experienced and mature to handle the Craft wave that has transformed the beer industry. Start by promoting field experience. They have earned customer loyalty that no new college student can come in and replace.

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility. Achieve monthly goals and you’re left to your own motivation to get them accomplished. Depending on the supervisor, definitely not micromanaged.

    Cons

    Lots of change in sales structure and company objectives.

    Pros

    A true meritocracy which allows employees to grow quickly and they are rewarded for there efforts with increased responsibilities. Fun product!

    Cons

    Overall the beer industry has had a tough couple of years with decreasing volumes. This puts increased pressure on employees to perform and deliver results.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are considering potential sources of disruption such as marijuana and spirits. We can not afford to be behind the curve like we were with craft beer.

    Vet management more accurately, fight for your employees.
