      Good company depending on the branch!

      Pros

      - Company Car - Company Gas - Outside of office - Always something new - Free beer at the end of the month

      Cons

      Depending on the branch you work, most individuals who work here are there for the long haul. Currently no sight of promotion even after being #1 month after month. Since higher management is not planning to change their position nor move up, you will be stuck in the same position until they feel like promoting you. Very long hours if you want to make any commission. Be ready to work some weekends.

      May 27, 2014 - Senior Key Accounts Manager in Tampa, FL

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits like medical, dental, 401K, insurance, sometimes a company car is provided. Two cases of beer per month. I would recommend working here with reservations. These reservations would be make sure your young (after college/MBA) 24-30. Dont expect to retire from ABI but after 10-15 years you either land some where else on your own or the company will show you out.

      Cons

      Long hours, meaning 12 hour days Monday through Friday with work on weekends in order to plan the next week and recap following week; personal life, if single, or family life will suffer because of this. When coming in from another company, what you learned or accomplished elsewhere isn't always taken into account at ABI and you may have to repeat positions or take steps back in order to move forward. Your end of year review does not take into account what you have accomplished in sales, distribution or cost savings.

      Ever-changing, used to be a great company to work for

      Jan 16, 2015 - Project Manager in Saint Louis, MO
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits (health insurance, Be Well program payouts/incentives), 2 cases beer/month, onsite fitness, flexible work program

      Cons

      Tons of politics, they are now laying off tenured (higher paid employees) employees and instead refilling with snotty Ivy League college grads and all the experience and loyalty to the company is walking out the door. Not much control over your bonus as it's contingent on others' performance as well as yours, no salary increases (lucky if you get one at all), not much opportunity to shift between departments or move up. They pride themselves on flexible work programs and work/life balance, but that is subject to manager opinion (which most are old-school and if your seat isn't warm and they cannot see you, you're assumed to not be working, lack of trust). Be prepared to work extra-long hours (50-60 hours/week) and little recognition or reward for hitting KPIs and targets, especially if the company and/or your boss doesn't hit theirs.
