    Pros

    Great people who want to win. Good brands

    Cons

    Senior management is clueless. Old school thinking. What worked 20 years won't work today. Big brands in decline with no sign of turnaround.
    Good ole boys club. You're in or not.

    Pros

    Strong diversity and inclusion programs. Strong array of benefits. Encouragement for personal growth and tools provided to enable the soft skills of employment.

    Cons

    For IT, there is a strong reliance on outsourced talent which can be limiting. Very little opportunity for early careers to grow long term into management. With recent change in ownership structure, opportunities may be stunted in Midwest locations but stronger in Western locales.

    Advice to Management

    IT is not a commodity where the sole opportunity is in cost reduction. There is value in growing your talent and having rank and file coders who are intimately familiar with the business and have continuity. Recent decision are too myopic and will cause problems down the line.

    Pros

    There are decent benefits (although I've seen better), free beer, management does take employee engagement surveys and reviews seriously. Overall, very good people.

    Cons

    As with every publicly traded company, the bottom line is really all that matters. The engagement and happiness of those lower on the totem pole are not as important as it would appear.

    Advice to Management

    None, they're doing what they can to make money for the company. It's just the way business is.

    I worked at MillerCoors as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with a competent team. I learned a lot. The flex hours were great. Casual dress. Secure parking areas were awesome, especially a bonus if you work late.

    Cons

    I worked with a VERY insecure senior-level individual who constantly had to see what I was doing, questioned everything and everyone, which caused dissension and resentment. What it boiled down to was lack of faith in my abilities, as I was new, and she questioned her own abilities. She second-guessed things all the time.

    Another issue was NO privacy or space. You work out in the open at long tables, no cubicles in most work areas. Can be an issue for those wanting privacy.

    Another issue was crappy hardware. For such a huge company, MillerCoors should have new(er) equipment. Instead, I got old or broken monitors, and had to pull teeth to get things for my workspace like a mousepad, wireless mouse, stapler, etc.

    It's a lot of little things that get annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your micromanagers! The person I had the misfortune to work with was neurotic, untrusting, and questioned everything, which made for a stressful environment. Also, it would be nice to hear, "You did a great job", once in a while instead of constant criticism.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with your employees
