I have been working at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very strong performance culture (not only the usual words - facts!).
This is a company for people who like to set a challenge, achieve it and bring results. Very casual company, no blabla, just do it. Upper management is extremely accessible and no politics.
You can make career in this company !

Cons

Performance culture is from the outside sometimes seen as aggressive. You do not always have all the resources that you need.

Advice to Management

Continue in the same direction. If more European companies would have this management style, there wouldn't be a crisis.

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

    Pros

    - Good atmosphere in lower bands
    - Flexible working hours
    - Lenient with lunch break time, other chat or smoke breaks as long as the job is done

    Cons

    - Not a competitive salary, unfair bonus systems, salary increases upon promotion minimal.
    - Limited promotion opportunities if you're not a Management Trainee.
    - Getting a good performance review only possible with numerous unpaid overtime hours
    - Very, very limited training opportunities (0 live trainings in >1 year employment)
    - IT heavily unreliable: downtime and slowdown of systems frustrate near all employees and >1h per day is lost.
    - Not all the tools necessary to do the job well are at your disposal due to cost savings
    - Continuous outsourcing and downgrading to the cheapest "good enough to continue operations" option
    - Many employees feel exploited and leave quickly, replaced by a cheap newly grad with reduced salary
    - High pressure and work load

    Advice to Management

    "Don't expect a Lufthansa service if you're only willing to pay a Ryanair price."

    If management would really live up to it's self-proclaimed principle that people are the center of the business, they really need to invest in keeping good employees happy and able to do their job without daily frustrations caused by cut costs where they shouldn't be cut.

    If the continuous scare of not receiving a bonus and the never-ending faltering of tools continue to frustrate people, people and knowledge retention may soon be low enough that core functions can no longer be executed adequately. The BSC a "center of excellence"? It's a center of barely good to continue functioning at the lowest cost possible.
