    Pros

    Pay is about the only pro I can think of. They keep cutting our insurance. The retirement plans are ok.

    Cons

    The over all Hours, it's shift work, forced overtime, management is total crap. The union here sucks as well, they won't really stand up for what's needed.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and do your job. Discipline when needed and stop being push overs. And also listen to your employees, we run the show and know what's really needed.

    Pros

    Saying you work at the worlds largest brewery and the pay plus OT equaling a 6 digit income at the end of the year

    Cons

    Working 21 -28 days in a row at a time and hailing zero say in anything that affects your life everyday

    Advice to Management

    Make a schedule that works for everyone not just your total annual numbers to get your promotion and bonus at the time be of the year

    I worked at MillerCoors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    High pay if you want to work 12 hours every day which most of the old-timers at MillerCoors want.

    Cons

    No Management whatsoever! The company lets the employees run the plant and set policy. Many of the old-timers were strikebreakers in the Golden plant so you can imagine where their loyalties reside...with themselves alone. The employees have created an atmosphere which is unimaginable in modern American society: racism, discrimination, open profanities and diatribes against homosexuals, women, African Americans, Latina/os, etc. are openly allowed and accepted by all. The work environment is always openly hostile unless you are one of the good old boys who "management" let operate the plant. The temporary workers are treated horribly...they do all the work while the old-timers sit in the break rooms drinking the Coors on tap.
    Brews are dropped daily because Control Room operators are either asleep (because they work every day of the year because they demand to), are in the break rooms, or are apathetic. A sad environment to work in.
    New, qualified, and professional employees leave quickly after being subjected to the hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    This could be a great company with great jobs but there needs to be some management. Line employees should not be running, and ruining, the company and the product. MillerCoors promotes itself as being everything that is good but the USA but, instead, MillerCoors is everything people do not want.

    Pros

    Company pays well, benefits are decent but could be more progressive. Company has a clear strategic plan and executes against them fairly well.

    Cons

    Sr. Leadership doesn't live out its culture statements. Has a plan to build and change culture but doesn't maintain an inclusive environment for current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Provide leadership development for existing and newly minted leaders. Need to invest in management training and cultural sensitivity training.

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

    Pros

    Great pay considering you can work here if you have the ethic, and drive. The job can be stressful but I dont take the issues home with me. 1.5x pay over 40hours and double time on your 7th day.

    Cons

    Work life balance is horrible. Its not uncommon to work 21 days in a row. The company puts its share holders before its customers, employees. Turnover has increased substantially since leaving a 4x4 work schedule.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to stop dropping brews, stop the turn over and actually keep up with GMP in the cellars run this place 24/7. I have seen millions of dollars in missed brews because management doesnt want to pay a few dozen people 45 bucks an hour on the weekend. I have seen well qualified, amazing workers leave brewing operations to work at the can plant/drive a fork lift because they never see their family. Your wages are no longer competitive when we can all leave to work in Pharma. The 1.2 % cost of living rasies year after year are an insult. We all know how expensive it has become to live in Colorado.
