    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

    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.

    Pros

    Working here was so much fun, and I learned a ton about marketing, and what it looks liked scaled all the way up at such a big company.

    Cons

    My manager was terrible. He was stuck as an ABM for many years and it was clearly due to the fact that he can't manage people.

    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    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

    Pay and Benefits. Free beer and gym membership.

    Cons

    Management is constantly in flux and never stays consistent long enough to make an impact. People are always moving in and out of departments and never mastering anything.

    Advice to Management

    Take charge and bring stability back to middle management. Lead by example and serve those workers below you. Learn as much from every SME as possible and try mastering your position.
