    Overall great atmosphere, but can be stressful at times. This is common among manufacturing environments.

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great wages and benefits. Plenty of opportunity to work overtime. You leave work at work when you clock out everyday.

    Cons

    No promotion without a college degree. The company would be better off promoting from within. There are a lot of operators with a lot more knowledge and experience than the college kids coming in as managers.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are the best - everyone is working very hard to meet goals and challenges.

    Cons

    Everyone is working very hard, and working harder every day. Resources are consistently scarce.

    Advice to Management

    Admit when things are going well and bring back the resources with the necessary skills.

    Pros

    Fast-paced; Great co-workers; Working for a beer company is fun

    Cons

    View on budgets is unsustainable (ZBB); lack of flexibility; changing expectations; lack of engagement; hours required make the pay not worth it; bonuses have been lacking for the past 5 years

    Advice to Management

    Introduce logic back into the company, make smart choices and invest in your employees if you want them to work as hard as is expected.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch full-time

    Pros

    Very easy to advance quickly in leadership roles, good compensation/benefits

    Cons

    Not enough technical experience throughout the salaried staff, not enough employees to get work done efficiently, constantly changing routines to attempt to help make process sustainable but it only makes it more complicated and is avoiding the true issue at hand (operation is way too lean). This causes the severe work-life balance deficit.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more mechanical and electrical engineers, allow them to do strictly process engineering at first (rather than supervise operators and technicians), then move them to management/supervisory roles, so that people responsible for quick decision making have the knowledge and experience to do so efficiently. Also need more computer programmers on staff.

    Pros

    Good benefits and PTO policy.

    Cons

    Since the InBev takeover this once majestic and storied company has become nothing but another greedy corporation that doesn't care about its people.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that everyone working for you is an actual living, breathing human being with a family and feelings. Its not always about the bottom line.
