I worked at MillerCoors full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Free beer and junk food with tons of bar parties, very low expectations - easy to get by, good opportunity to make mistakes and learn from them.

Cons

Company tends to make mistakes and use outside consultant to fix the problem, although often times they are retired ex-employees. Despite being a beer company, this is an extremely conservative company that stubbornly will not change its ways during a drastically shifting beer market.

Advice to Management

Take some risks or your company will continue to die a slow death. Consider your biggest threat the microbrewers who have so much less scale, yet so much more brand equity.

    I have been working at MillerCoors as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High Pay
    two, sixty hour training weeks with overtime after the forty hour mark
    Only scheduled by request
    Good camaraderie and helpful training employees

    Cons

    Fluctuant work placement. You are the bottom man on the totem pole for quite some time before the possibility for vertical expansion. Management can be quite difficult in the first weeks when you return from a break.

    Advice to Management

    Always be on time. Never, ever use your cell phone. Perform thorough quality control checks when scheduled. Always practice safe working strategies and keep your personal protective equipment on all the time

    Pros

    -Fun industry
    -Free beer
    -Recognized brands
    -Decent compensation package

    Cons

    -People love beer more than developing a culture where people want to stay and grow.
    -Miller and Coors cultures clash. Miller is cuthroat and Coors was more collaborative
    -Lack of respect for its employees. I knew several co-workers that left as a result.
    -Management looks the other way when complaints are made
    -Company talks about employee development with "What you do" and "How you achieve it" but it is all talk, when I raised concerns about "how" my immature 25 yr old mgr with no experience, was treating me management would look the other way.

    Advice to Management

    It is a revolving door and people continue to leave. Instill a culture where people are not bullied or humiliated to retain talent. More work needs to be done to intregrate the two cultures.
