    I worked at The Boston Beer Company full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture. It truly feels like a small business and access to upper management is a great perk. The company cares about your career development.
     They invest a lot of time and money into sales/beer training. Great benefits.

    Cons

    I had a great manager. However, the company's strict adherence to "hire from within" is a bad policy. Numerous managers had no business in their positions...especially when they didn't know how to manage people. The compensation structure isn't competitive compared to others in the industry. Jim Koch is a pioneer, but innovation is lagging and the company is falling behind.

    Advice to Management

    "Hire from within" has to go. Sometimes its good to bring in outside opinions/experience.
