    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Our informal "jeans" culture may seem trivial from the outside - but it really breaks down corporate bureaucracy and helps us focus on actually getting things done. I love that we challenge ourselves to step outside our comfort zones and that we allow our People to take on stretch roles rather than pigeon-holing them into predefined traditional career paths.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone, I've seen folks come from more static corporate structures heavy on routine and hierarchy who could not adapt to our culture. Historical combinations have resulted in too many systems that aren't always in sync which can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on our People and start looking for ways to implement better end to end systems to improve efficiency.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great pay, decent amount of holidays, lots of responsibility and growth opportunities.

    Cons

    If you work at one of the breweries, get ready to work your butt off, essentially 24/7. Get ready to babysit a lot of grown men (aka union brewers) and work in a very unprofessional environment most of the time. Don't expect to get any sympathy from your managers or anyone else really, if you're tired or stressed.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about what's going on in the company and what's going on with individuals' careers. Don't talk badly about your employees in front of your other employees, it's just in poor taste. Have empathy and support your front line managers.

    Cons

    If you need structure and clear directions, this might not be the best place for you.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Being able to tell your friends you work for Anheuser-Busch always was exciting as everyone knows Bud-Light. Two cases of beer a month.

    Cons

    No room for growth. AB advertises itself as a meritocracy, but I never saw any follow through with that statement. There are constantly people getting hired and quitting because nobody wants to stick around. They did a great job of pumping you up at meetings, but after a while you realize it's all just talk and nothing will come of it. So focused on reaching quota that it seems everyone is constantly yelling at one another...

      I have been working at Anheuser-Busch full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      The challenges are endless at AB fixing all the brewing/packaging systems in place. You can learn a lot and dive in as much as you want to when repairing or installing systems. The wages are getting more mediocre as raises are insultingly low compared to inflation. Vacation and benefits are good. 401k match use to be 6% now 3%. pension is nice but it will be going away in near future. If you want to make the $, you...

      Cons

      This company runs as if it may close next year. They don't properly staff and supply the workforce with proper training, parts and manpower. Most of the process equipment is inadequately installed/repaired due to lack of knowledgable management, funds and resources. This company is trending downward as the compensation packages are not keeping pace with inflation and industry standard.

      Advice to Management

      I feel sorry for mid level management. They are in a tight spot keeping process equipment running with little funds and resources. Drop the 3G mindset and actually build a company instead of recycling one. Upper management is sending AB into a shell of a once great place. They need to invest in building their company instead of buying other companies and shelling them out!! Over all I still recommend AB as a great...

      I worked at Anheuser-Busch part-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      I loved this job so much. So many opportunities to meet people from all over the world when conducting tours, and so many opportunities to learn fun information about the beer industry and the history of this great company.

      Cons

      Types of tours and information to share with the guests would change relatively frequently, so that would be something that occasionally would be frustrating to adjust to, but not impossible by any means.
