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

    Pros

    Good product and good people in a fun industry changing all of the time. A lot of opportunities with AB because many people are leaving.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't seem to have a pulse on the US market and has problems building market share.

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

    Pros

    Stock (if you can last 5 years) and a 9% 401k Match( if you can last 3 years), mediocre health benefits and opportunity to work with large marketing agencies if in marketing

    Cons

    Leadership is poor and inexperienced. People are not valued but rather treated like "cattle". Lots of people in roles they are not ready for causing the massive decline of Core brands. No respect for diversity, it's simply a check the box for the company. Working 12 hour days and weekends is expected and the norm. The review process is flawed and completely subjective and not based on meritocracy or results. No American Sr. leadership therefore no sense of American Values for a 16 Billion dollar portfolio in America inclusive of iconic American Brands. ( head of marketing, head of sales and head of North America are Brazilian). 3 year 401k vest and 5 year stock vest.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people, listen when they voice concerns

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was good and the work was not terribly hard and you got a lot of beer

    Cons

    You are just a number there was very little communication from anybody other than your direct supervisor. And they just laid off hundreds of people with no warning.

    Advice to Management

    You're going to lay them off without warning and for nothing that they've done wrong at least offer a pretty decent severance package or give them time to find a new job or both.
