      Vaccine Mandates

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Amazing company with amazing people

      Cons

      Pushing vaccine mandates to return to the workplace, or attend social gatherings outside the office, contradicts everything the company claims to stand for with respect to Inclusion. Truly despicable to discriminate against a group of people based on a medical choice, whether it be driven by religious or personal beliefs. You should really be ashamed to have taken such a strong position on this topic and promoting a socialist agenda that aims to remove peoples' basic human rights. Appalling, even to someone who is fully vaccinated.

      Pros

      The people at Labatt is what makes it so special - you truly feel like you are part of a team and that people have your best interest at heart. The people at Labatt have a competitive spirit, yet continuously working toward the same goal. We all want to see each other succeed. There are an endless amounts of exciting challenges - if you are someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment and not afraid to take on projects which can be out of your comfort zone (at first), then this is the place to be. The growth opportunities are truly endless.

      Cons

      If you are someone who enjoys a consistent daily routine, this is not the place for you. Things change on the fly here, it is so fast-paced...but that's what makes it such a special place to work. You will never be bored working here! You really need to be comfortable with the uncomfortable as the team will stretch you to bring your best self to work. They will trust you with projects bigger than you could've ever imagined, which can be intimidating at times, yet so rewarding. Personally, it's been a really challenging yet rewarding experience taking on so many challenges out of my comfort zone and feel I've really been able to grow within this dynamic culture.

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits and free beer

      Cons

      Toxic work environment, staff are overloaded with work, no work/life balance, too much OT, bullying very common in multiple departments, no reward for hard work, not accepting of new ideas or improvements, horrible training program, unreasonable expectations of new staff, very high school feeling with clicks and bullying, staff behaving unethically and management not doing anything about it (fudging data, not entering data to make control charts look good, writing down tasks are complete when they are not, etc.)

      Pros

      1) My curiosity and enterpeneualism are highly encouraged and I have ownership overmy projects. The work on a day to day basis is extremely dynamic 2)My colleagues are very passionate about the work and the company and they are always approachable and supportive 3) The management team has helped my development and provided mentorship and guidance to me from my first day at the company. This applies to everyone from my immediate manager, all the way to members of the management committe-- they are always enocuraging, approachable and show great leadership

      Cons

      Some roles may not be suitable for everyone because you are expected to be a self-starter and set your own course, which does not work for everyone. In addition, progression is more limited if you are not fully mobile

      Good place for a starter career.

      Pros

      Great start out of college. Comfortable place to call home. Management is very friendly and accomodating. Most upper management have been with the company over 10 years. Most of the professional employee base are young in the low to mid 20s but are a selection of intelligent individuals. Plenty of room to be creative with your position and present new and interesting ideas to be considered realistically by management.

      Cons

      Low training opportunities. Software and systems are out of date and unused in large business. Advancement potential is slightly lower because most managers have been there for a very long time. A Pro in the sense that people stay, a con in the sense of advancement... However, the managers now were advanced at some point as well. Biggest concern is the desire to grow the company. Labatt is below average industry growth.
