      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.)

      Not for everyone

      Oct 6, 2020 - Backoffice Sales Manager in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Exciting industry that is constantly changing and Labatt is the market leader (by far). -Labatt is not afraid to play offense when needed. M&A and other big moves are always on the table. -Opportunity to take on big projects early on in your career. -Benefit package is average but above average 8% DC pension match. -Very early in inclusion and diversity journey, but open to change under new President and VP of People

      Cons

      -High turnover on commercial team leads to many vacancies that do not get filled in a timely manner. -Work life balance is unhealthy and not suitable to a family or caregiver lifestyle. -Extreme KPI driven organization leading to competitiveness and finger pointing when projects or results are off-track. -Above average bonuses are only paid out on avg every 5th year (last 2 times were 2015 & 2009). -Openly targets salaries at 80% of market reference (you will never make as much as you would with other leading CPG companies). -Visibility to internal job openings is non- existent and not shared internally. -Data and analytical capabilities not prioritized. Years behind leading CPG companies as Labatt refuses to resource this function appropriately. Disclosure: this review is written by a current employee who is actively looking for a new job with another employer.

      Pros

      - Beer Card - a few good projects - here and there

      Cons

      - lack of original ideas - gimmicks vs. storytelling - bonus structure is a lie - no work/life balance - everyone is expected to work non stop to get the job done - too many projects, not enough staff to handle the workload - all projects are a rush - shrinking budgets - expected to take on more projects when already at capacity everyday - brand managers feel junior - indecisive, chaotic - ideas seem to be based on what other companies are doing first vs coming up with uniquely cool good ideas
