    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.

    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.

    I worked at MillerCoors as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free monthly beer stipend
    Free happy hour daily
    Nice facilities
    Team outings and company-wide events
    Summer Fridays (can leave at 2 if you hit your 40 hours)
    Competitive pay

    Cons

    While working for MillerCoors comes with a great title and fun perks like free beer, those do not make up for the lack of community in the office. Most employees head straight to their cubicle and work in silence throughout the day. There is a lack of collaboration and I found it difficult to ask questions while I was still learning my role. The company is so large that each position is very specialized, leading to a lack of variety. This also means it takes forever to get anything accomplished because there are too many cooks in the kitchen while working on a project. The HR department is a mess as well.

    Peers are great to work with, a lot of bright folks with great ideas.

    Change to the way things are done might make work less desirable. I was enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Change slowly and remember who your dedicated workers and and what they can do for your company.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Decent benefits for manufacturing. Free beer.

    Cons

    DISCLAIMER:
    Much of the individual opinion is based subjectively on particular business unit (department). The culture of other business units may be different for better or worse.

    Additionally, the opinions of hourly employees vs salaried will also vary greatly due to the fact that their schedules and work life balance are not comparable.

    No real development. People tend to get boxed into their current positions. If you are an hourly employee your work life balance will lean heavily to the work side 6-7 days per week for the entire year. Salaried employees are paid at or below the industry standard for similar positions at different companies. Man power is limited and continues to dwindle. Culture is poor, attitudes of most hourly employees are negative.

    Advice to Management

    None. They can't change a thing because the goal is to make beer, and sell it, not to create a positive, cultivating, progressive work environment.

    Pros

    The payment for a brewery worker is actually pretty good when you get hired on full time (which could take any amount of time it is based on what they see fit)

    Cons

    You will work 40 hours in addition to every Saturday (even if you don't sign up you will be forced to work), you will work 2nd or 3rd shift since it takes 40+ years to get onto 1st shift

    Advice to Management

    Alternate schedules so people are there to covers each day example: someone works Monday through Friday and someone else is Tuesday through Saturday and so on.

    Pros

    I appreciated having the ability to work from home, Free beer, nice people, generous expense account.

    Cons

    New team lead made everyone's life a living hell. He pretty much hated women and treated us like second rate citizens. Even went so far as having the male team members sneak out of the office so they wouldn't have to invite us to lunch. We didn't want to go anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone is capable of managing people. Do a better job of assessing people management skills and let the psychos be individual contributors.
