    I worked at MillerCoors full-time

    Pros

    Free Beer, flexible schedule, large in market budget, great benefits, good salary, being able to attend sponsored events, large portfolio of great brands to sell.

    Cons

    Corporate (Chicago/Milwaukee) is often disorganized and has a significant communication problem with the field. Many of them also do not understand that markets vary significantly by location and that the Midwest, although a great market for MC is not reflective of the rest of the US (I.e. what works in Chicago/Milwaukee is not necessarily a solution for Portland or San Francisco). Must work long hours, late nights and often weekends to be successful, it is a really fun company to work for, but all you do is work, need to be passionate about the industry to do well in role. Hard to get promoted, politics often involved.

    I worked at MillerCoors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is way high for an operator $32-$34 an hour.

    Cons

    Job specific training is a joke, you'll shadow someone for a few days who also lacks proper training learn bad habits, then be on your own. Fellow team mates could care less if you are struggling and will walk right past you without offering any assistance.
    Then they'll tell your boss that you aren't good at your job and try to get you displaced.

    Work/Life balance is terrible for hourly employees. Often you'll work 12 hour shifts for 7-21 days in a row. Management knows, but doesn't care enough to help in any meaningful way.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue.

    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Work with great people, both coworkers and accounts
    - Experience new cities and gain a unique perspective in your market
    - There's always new opportunities and challenges in such a rapidly evolving industry

    Cons

    - Business objectives come from multiple levels of the organization and often confuse and obscure priorities
    - Work/life balance is tough (work frequent nights and weekends)
    - Execution of performance goals (particularly volume growth) is heavily affected by such fickle things as weather. Context only goes so far, and you could be set back months on a promotion

    Advice to Management

    It is difficult to determine defined success or failure when there are multiple conflicting priorities at a time. Streamline objectives, set clear goals, and allow employees to execute without changing course.

    Senior Leadership struggles with Credibility as brands continue to decline. SLT not willing to manage markets differently as market dynamics dictate

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, lots of overtime, easily earning over $100k per year, great benefits, free beer.

    Cons

    NO work life balance. Often working between 20-60 days consecutive.

    Advice to Management

    Have more consideration for employees that make the heart of the company beat. Our lives, our families, our homes, our ambitions matter to us. Throwing money at us isn't always the only desire we have.

    Plan better schedules so people have a better work life balance. Improve not just safety training, but job and career focused training for all job titles.

    Try to understand our pain points in full before making decisions that serve only the companies interest.
