    I worked at MillerCoors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had some of the best managers of my career. Work was generally interesting, challenging and allows for learning and advancement. Most co-workers are nice, helpful and collaborative. Overall great people. Work life balance is usually pretty good... most jobs would have some night/weekend work due to the nature of the business, but there's a lot of flexibility in working from home or taking flex time for office and sales staff.

    Cons

    As with most places, who you know and who you're friends with can strongly impact your opportunities. Being an image-conscious lifestyle brand company, this is even more the case than at most companies. Also, strong headwinds in the category and new management with super aggressive (and perhaps not achievable) goals have made it seem less stable.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose focus on developing leadership- including up and coming leaders. This means developing strong people management skills, not just hitting sales goals or graduating from the sales management professional program.

    Pros

    Free beer, working in beer is fun.

    Cons

    Poor managers, good old boy network

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to develop managers. Stop promoting members of the good old boy network. You can't just keep cutting cost. Eventually you need to figure out how to grow the business. A bunch of old guys trying to guess what young consumers want. No wonder the company is declining. It's only a matter of tome before Molson Coors is acquired.

    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits package is really top notch - health care is much less expensive than at prior employers, onsite medical clinic is cost effective. Free beer via an employee store and bar is one of the most fun benefits I've ever had. Great vacation time - 2 weeks prorated your first year, a week of floating holidays your 2nd, year, then 3 weeks plus the floaters your third. Best company match and non-elective contribution to a 401(k) I've ever had. Free disability benefits.
    Salaries are really competitive, for the hourly roles it is hard to find something that pays as well as this.

    Cons

    The beer industry has changed significantly over the course of many of my coworkers careers, and some have lost site of what it's like outside of our large organization. This can lead to complaints about the changes we've experienced, but we've got a better deal than I had 15 years ago worker for an auto supplier. OT demands can be high during peak production times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to assess opportunities for reducing mandatory OT during peak production periods.
    Continue efforts to expand the brand portfolio so that we stop the decline of our volume within the market.
    Engage your teams in helping to drive improvements in production processes.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Work from home options and summer hours for Corporate Staff. Global opportunities with the new parent company Molson Coors.

    Cons

    Age Discrimination! If you are 50-55 you will no longer be considered for movement. Common tactics used are; higher degree required to move another level/same level, or below performance reviews so no movement allowed. Management ask employees when they are planning on retiring.
    Preferential treatment in Milwaukee/Chicago VS Golden. Suppose to be a Global Company but majority of new people hired are 35 and under and located in Milwaukee/Chicago.

    Advice to Management

    Tenured employees bring value to the business and should not be forced out of the company.

    Pros

    Great people and fairly collaborative work environment. Summer Friday's and some WFH options. If you like free beer then that is also a nice perk.

    Cons

    Career paths for strong employees are determined by HR and management. You have virtually no say in how you want to shape your career (despite what is told to employees internally). Work life balance is "talked about" but the reality is that it's non existent. MillerCoors continues to lose strong talent because it can't see two inches in front of it's own face and own up to the reality of what is happening with morale and culture.

    Advice to Management

    The pay scale is a joke compared to the rest of CPG, especially in Chicago. Work on that instead of telling employees they must do X amount of rotations to get ahead. Also the favoritism and cliques are getting pretty old.
