    I have been working at HEINEKEN USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company in a middle of turnaround, and on the right path. Great people and culture. Re-writing the rules to win in beer industry. Recently embarked on identifying our company purpose "why are we here" kind of stuff. Very motivating.

    Cons

    Sometimes trying to do everything all at once. Some leaders have been in place awhile and need to step up or move on.

    Advice to Management

    High performance culture means making some tough calls on choice and people. Keep up the balance of this high performance orientation with concern for well being of people. It means a lot.

    I have been working at HEINEKEN USA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people, fun environment (you are selling beer), company trying to to help employees find better work / life balance

    Cons

    Management tends to be very reactionary versus proactive, being a smaller organization in the US, work / life balance can be difficult to maintain, must play politics to get ahead, only select few in inner circle get opportunities (both financial and career opps)

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so reactionary, invest in the pieces of the business that growing

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at HEINEKEN USA

    Pros

    Great people and great benefits. Fun at times. Proud heritage of the family and great brands. Big company, small company feel at times. Charity events, fun activities involve employees. Good review system with bi-annual reviews with your leaders and goal tracking for bonus goals.

    Cons

    Poor communication from management on all levels. Sneaky behavior behind the scenes, saving face up front. Vague answers to important questions like the future of the company or the stability of your job. Feeling of "no one is safe" around the corporate office because of the questionable behavior of management.

    Advice to Management

    The management team really needs to bring the culture back to where it was/should be. It has become so concerned with meeting numbers that the importance of people has been lost. The employees feel totally disconnected from the company happenings. If you don't comply with decisions you will be forced out. It's become a culture of fear and backstabbing.
