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.
