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

    Pros

    Free (bland) beer, opportunity to make a lot of money if you are happy working overtime, you don't take your work home with you (you just never go home)

    Cons

    For new engineers right out of college they expect you to do mandatory overtime every other weekend. That means you work 12 days on and then only get 2 days off... and you're rotating shifts, so 2/3 of the time you're not on normal working hours. Also, the unions hate management, and you are a part of management, so they hate you. Management only cares about your up-time, and rarely supports you in a dispute with the unions. You leave work tired, unhappy, and bitter with just about everyone you work with. Don't get sucked in by the promise of lots of money in overtime... it's not worth it. I was told the four year retention rate is only 20%. That means 4 out of 5 engineers leave the company for something else.... Probably a place that respects their work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Change the scheduling to get rid of the mandatory overtime. Give people more vacation. Allow operators to have chairs on the floor. Respect your employees, and reduce some of the pressure.
