    I have been working at Molson Coors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free beer. Good people outside of upper management.

    Cons

    They don't treat their employees with respect. When it was Molson everybody was treated well and compensated for a hard days work. Since the merger with Coors the corporation has been taking more and more from its employees.

    Advice to Management

    They should review and follow their corporate values.

    I have been working at Molson Coors (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance with employees including senior leadership not working very hard, basically a four day work week with Fridays off (work from home).

    Cons

    Continued decline in the business with no vision and strategy to grow. Great talk, no walk. Pending addition of full US business is moving company in the wrong direction.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger performance management, esp. towards achieving growth/results. Drive real change to reverse declines including market share in all markets.

    Pros

    Exciting work, flexibility, pay and benefits are good

    Cons

    Entitled employees, inconsistent treatment of employees and lack of dealing with issues in certain departments

    Advice to Management

    Leadership and culture in one specific department is not a good representation of the company. I would advise Sr. Management to look into this as this group is the face of the company.

    Pros

    REGION / COUNTRY - CEE / RO

    Molson Coors is a great place to learn and grow. And then move on to more beneficial career partnerships.

    PRO:
    - see the entire business flow - if you are curious enough, then the people are willing to show you the ropes in every little aspect of the business
    - design solution based programs - if you are proactive, then you will find opportunities to design at least one program in the company
    - build lasting work driven relations - some of the people (SMEs and top managers) are sociable and capable of building meaininful relations that enable you to experience life lessons and also forward your goals
    - brilliant values (but next to never see them coming off the wall) and inspiring business leaders
    - amazing talent in supply chain
    - great enthusiasm (but little to go off into actually implementing plans)

    Cons

    As I said... Molson Coors is a great place to learn and grow. And then move on to more beneficial career partnerships.

    CONS:
    - low salaries
    - poor performance management system
    - only talks, no actions in terms of talent planning and succesion
    - promote the 70/20/10 model but do not act on it and training is scheduled not keeping in mind PDPs
    - few Line Managers capable of nurturing and growing talent (perhaps not their fault, as HR is... not up to par to say the least)

    I worked at Molson Coors full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Who wouldn't want to work for a beer company? Kegs in the lunch room, bbq's in the summer, launch events that have a lasting impression! Profit margins are excellent, bonuses are generous and its a very lively fun company overall.
    Pay, benefits and bonuses are excellent.

    Cons

    Delving deeper into specific departments, you see a wide disparity in the way each one is treated. Some are demi-god like and revered, while others are stepped on such that others can succeed and attain their targets. There is a fair amount of deceit as well in their relations with import partners such that relationships and budgets can be maintained. At the end of the year however, numbers do not lie. Problems are not resolved at the root, rather they focus on the sales figure at the expense of operational costs.
    Their succession planning is also peculiar, some very drastic moves made that have not panned out typically. Mind you some moves have been genius but its seldom. Certain 'leaders' were more tyrannical than inspiring which has caused a huge ripple through some previously well-run teams. One such person would go so far to demand your personal contact information such that you can be reached at all hours of the night such that urgent requests are addressed immediately. Work-life imbalance was a major factor in recent turnovers.
    Many external hires led to discontent among employees who were there for a good portion of their careers.

    Pros

    Iconic company with instant brand recognition, a real gem of company to work for in terms of being able to say you work at Molson.

    Cons

    People. Unfortunatley, Molson doesn't recognize it's greatest strength and continues to downsize their best resource.

    Advice to Management

    People made this company. John Molson started with a vision of brewing great beer and hiring the right people to make those decisions. Stop outsourcing and nickle and diming every transaction. Bring back the soul of the company, by treating people with dignity and respect, and for goodness sakes fix the IT processes! Having physical IT people in each location is HUGE.

    Pros

    Great people.... Working in a vibrant industry

    Cons

    My feeling is that people don't care as they did.. It always felt like it was an hierarchical and political environment which seemed to manifest itself in everybody looking out for the backstabber around every corner.

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive. Try and move away from a perceived them and us culture. People express fear of job loss so often that many just keep their heads down and become invisible. As leaders you don't have to be liked but you do have to be respected.. To do that people want you to be more visible.. This should start the new CEO, who it feels like is just passing through on route to the next job versus Dave Perkins who appeared to care so much more about a great Canadian business and the people within it
