    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    External reputation still good since not everyone knows how truly bad it is at AB. I have met great people in my years with AB.

    Cons

    So many, is hard to decide what not to include. I will share a few. Abundant incompetence. Desperate retail solutions that are not rooted on market knowledge. Constant firing of experienced people that are replaced by young, energetic and inexperienced types. Ineffective marketing due to terrible CMO leadership over past years. Key brands are dying with no solution in sight. Bud Light and Budweiser are struggling for consumer relevance. Worst performers are often rewarded with a promotion if they suck-up to the right people. Most of the sales team time is spent on "administrative" stuff versus selling. Wholesalers are not "aligned" with new, despised, AB culture. Employees are placed on "Recovery Plans" as a tactic to squeeze more work out of them since the job is at risk. Low employee morale. Long working hours are a way of life. My peers and I average over 60 hours a week or more as a normal. I have seen over 20+ persons leave or get fired in the past year alone and that is just at our Texas-Louisiana-Arkansas-New Mexico Regional office. Attrition at New York HQ office is bad as well.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize people attrition. Listen to consumers and customers. Stop bringing people with little to no US marketing or sales experience to lead at the top of sales and marketing. Learn more about what made AB great in the past and recognize that you are going on the opposite direction.

    Funniest job I've ever had! Meet a lot of great people

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch as a contractor

    Pros

    great co workers, beer on friday

    Cons

    long hours, no holiday pay, no sick time, no vacations. terrible work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Less contractors would leave if you didn't treat us like second class citizens, work us like slaves, and dangle promotions over our heads only to never give them out. If you bust your butt, and work overtime every week then you may get lucky and be promoted after a year. But only then to a temp. it is NOT worth it
