I have been working at Heineken full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

diverse group of employees, fun events once in a while, bar in the office, beer allowance, sometimes there are travel opportunities for meetings & site visits (depending on your role could be quite often).

Cons

leadership team is not connected to their employees at all, perks are great but only for certain people/teams, communication is poor between departments, HR is non-existant, Heineken Americas & Heineken USA share an office but are completely segregated (where is this 'office relations' team?).

Advice to Management

Show appreciation for everyone, not just your assistants. Make an effort to follow the Heineken core principles that the very poor HR team says we should all exhibit. HR needs to actually be an HR team, that is really embarrassing when new employees don't have email addresses, computers, offer letters, etc.

    Pros

    Great dynamic and inspiring brands and people; The place for passion and development while having fun! Best leaders I vê seem

    Cons

    Lack of maturity brings crazy agenda and commitment on the way forward. Work life balance and diversity are not priorities!
