I have been working at Anheuser-Busch full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Big bonuses for upper managers (top 6 or so in each brewery)
Tons of overtime
Up to 8 weeks vacation (not for salary types, new hires top out at 4 weeks)

Cons

Banker upper managers only care about $$$ and nothing else.
Large turnover in "group" managers because they are expected to do the impossible
Management bent on cost and job cutting without regard to long term effect on product quality.

Advice to Management

I don't know if it's just in the Houston brewery or if it's rampant throughout the A-B brewery system. In Houston the budget (or lack there of) is law. Things don't get fixed, they get a band-aid to get thru this 8 hour shift then it's someone elses problem. Parts are rarely on hand to actually repair something. It's time to long at the long term effect this time of management will have on this brewery and the jobs it creates in this community rather than keying in on keep local managements bonuses at the maximum.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    two free cases of beer per month, fun learning environment, tasting experience not relegated to brewmasters or certain managers, global opportunities, engineers and scientists have interesting roles

    Cons

    male dominated, very few underrepresented minorities in upper management, some favoritism (maybe unlike any other company in that way), 24/7 and 365 shifts and monitoring needed (as with any biological process)

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to hold everyone up to the same standards or expectations and hire with diversity in mind (it is a business case).

    Pros

    Pay, pay, and oh yeah did I mention pay. Also a good secure company to work for.

    Cons

    Having no life on weekends, no guarentee that you will get shifts on the weekends, and takes a long time to get full time and if you do get full time be prepared to work night shift alot
