    Pros

    In my group I am respected, listened to, and allowed to explore new ideas. The flex time and work-from-home programs are a boon for work/life management. A-B has an outstanding benefits package, especially vacation accrual. 401k match is also very good, as are health insurance costs. The people I work with are truly professional and very good at what they do. Recently the dress code has even changed to include allowing jeans on any day.

    Cons

    Things have changed over the past 8 years since I started working there, for the better, IMHO. It used to be that upper management wanted sycophants, and that mentality trickled down, and you were punished for objecting to bad ideas sometimes. But since August IV and Castellano stepped in, there has been a great sweeping out of the old guard and now they "embrace mavericks," or so they say. There is still occasionally rigid encouragement to tow a bad line, but those occasions have become more and more infrequent as time goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Protect your investment in us, and we will protect our investment in you.

    The only downside is the InBev takeover. InBev's corporate structure and management style is night and day tcompared to the family environment the Busch's created. Management is now very ridgid.

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    The people who work at Anheuser-Busch are some of the most talented and well rounded people i have meet in my professional career.
    The company has a great office environment and has several in office activities to keep the work week short and enjoyable.

    Cons

    Union workers abound on the manufacturing floor and there is a bit of divide between hourly and salary employees.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate the hourly employees with the salary employees and the overall atmosphere of the plant would be greatly improved

    Pros

    Top customer service, atmosphere was like family. Further education was encouraged and allowed while at work. Many perks such as: free luncheons, merchandise give aways, rewards for good suggestions that saved company money or improved on safety and freedom to get jobs done without breathing down our backs.

    Cons

    Some people were allowed to be slackers. Raises were up to individual dept. managers, so of course pets received top dollar while others were possibly short changed. Office workers had to wear business casual but were sometimes sent to warehouse to work in heels and nice clothing. Was told to keep extra outfit to change into at desk.

    Advice to Management

    It is no longer Anheuser. We were told that they were approached about an offer for a buy out and that they had no intention of selling that it was absolutely nothing to worry about...... a year later they sold us out. They just didn't want their work force quitting on them. They had it planned from the beginning. It was just a matter of it all falling into place.
