Pros

Working at InBev provides many valuable lessons in how NOT to run a business.

Cons

A shoddy, third-rate operation on every level. The U.S. plants have become disgusting and dangerous places to work under InBev, as safety and sanitation are not part of the cost-cutting culture.

Senior management holds its employees in contempt, yet wonders why no one is "engaged." The reasons for the mass exodus taking place now as the economy improves seems to be truly lost on them, despite nickel and diming employees since the takeover (the ones who haven't been fired, that is), right down to passing along the $50 a year fee to manage your 401K account.

Lights are kept turned off in all office areas, and in many parts of the plants as a rule.

The culture of "Meritocracy" is a farce. Bonus payouts are not based on extraordinary performance, they are based on narrowly defined targets, set at the beginning of the year, and don't seem to be much more than a mirage to keep employees chasing after pay that the old A-B would have already distributed in merit increases over the past 2 years.

Advice to Management

As a stockholder in several competing companies, let me just say: please don't change a thing.

    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.


  2. "Ruthless to employees and suppliers"

    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.
