Pros

A known company. Everyone knows your products.

2 cases a month...while it lasts....

Cons

All they care about is cost. 120 payment terms to suppliers? No one wants to work with you due to that.

Open office enviroment causes a lot of negativity. The only way to make more money is to become a manager. Makes people not want to talk to eachother, or work with eachother. A lot of backstabing involved.

No one cares about technicals, only powerpoints. Everyone is managing upwards. Managers do not care about employees under them.

Everything is about cost... and they sacerfice quality.

Advice to Management

Brito needs to understand the total cost is important. Not just procured costs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    AB InBev loves money, in fact, they worship it. Pay and bonus are higher than standard but it comes at a high price to your humanity.

    Cons

    Little respect for others in the workplace. If you care about people then this is not the culture for you. Their culture is simple, "the end justifies the means". Lying to employees is at the heart of the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Your culture will clash with many Americans. As the public understands the culture and the company behind the product. Many Americans will not drink your beer.


  2. "A brewer that thinks like a banker"

    Pros

    For non-family oriented young type A men, this is a great place. There is a high expectation of promotable employees to relocate, often. Compensation can be lucrative, but it is highly leveraged against acheiving "KPI's" which some feel are are intentionally set too high.

    Cons

    Anheuser-Busch was acquired by InBev in November of 2008. The legacy A-B people (like me) are generally not happy. The legacy InBev people are generally very happy. Outsiders who join the company now are brought in by the legacy InBev people, so they are generally happy too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving speechs to the employees than include your opinion that of every 500 employees, only 5 or so are truly valuable. Its usually the only part of the speech they remember.
