    I worked at Molson Coors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gorgeous office downtown Denver with spectacular views of the mountains and downtown. Overall, laid back environment. Superior training.

    Cons

    young folks with large salaries and little business etiquette, contract employees not included in office extra curricular activities, upper management not always following through with future project implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Should have a full time regular "Molson Coors" employee working the front in order to feel a part of the organization. First face/first impression....

    Pros

    A great deal of pride in product and business
    Gennuine attention to culture and vision
    Treats employees as family
    Family oriented and flexible in making things work for you

    Cons

    I love the company, but there are individual pockets of middle management that make some parts of the company unplease to work in. They can take good things like the employee satisfaction survey and use them as a blugeon to flog their employees with. Mind you, this is limited to certain pockets, the company as a whole is wonderful. Due to it's small size in the US, there really isn't a good career track.

    Advice to Management

    You message and vision are good, but there are some departments that are subverting your vision. They are producing what you ask for through bullying and threats. They make their employees smile for you with a "Beatings will continue until morale improves" mentality. Try to find those VPs that are perpetuating this.

    Pros

    Great company for category management. One of the leaders for category management and process. Won numerous awards for category management and space management.

    Cons

    I came in during the Joint Venture with Miller so it was a little tough to get going and for them to trust me with retailers and projects.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more information on what is going on with big projects, i.e. JV's. I was hired to do a job and then they didn't let me do anything, assign me a retailer or projects.

    Former Employee - Brand Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Most brands actually have 'made in canada' content so you're not simply doing a cut and paste job of US strategy. Exciting to work for a company where ideas are still coming from local teams, yet you have the scale and international affiliations to do something really big!

    Strong pay (relative to other CPG/retail companies) and fair benefit plan.

    Exciting perks in marketing/brand department (access to sports events, concerts, trips etc, though those used to be more frequent in years past, and are declining).

    It's obviously a fun industry, don't need to explain further. Your product is inherently a social one (I seriously doubt your neighbours would be as friendly towards you if you marketed canned soups or diapers).

    Cons

    Politics and the continual 'churn' that is created by leadership team which is unable to set clear priorities and always wants to know "what if" scenarios. Lack of long term commitment to brand budgets and vision, instead everyone is beholden to quarterly shareholder results and rushes to 'put out fires'.

    Some departments are highly collaborative and positive working relationships, others do not. Systematic bonus/objective systems puts some areas of the business (procurement) at complete odds with others (innovation, marketing), so it's difficult to get others to do what you need.

    Highly conservative in terms of many consumer facing activations and messaging - when you're such a large company I suppose you have a lot to lose if the PR doesn't play out well, but for God's sake take a stand and consumers will respect it.

    Alot of long term all stars have left the business over the past 6-18 months and there is a new CEO at the helm. It's unclear how things will shake out with so many personnel changes (some good, some bad). That's the one constant at Molson, given the size, people are coming and going all the time. Hard to keep track and I doubt all the proper insights and knowledge is being transferred as it ideally should.

    Advice to Management

    Molson is a slow moving ship in a dynamic industry. You've got to take ideas from all levels of the organization and make bold moves to keep up with both the other giants (who are winning the game) and the little craft players who are basking in consumer love at the moment. The old way isn't working...
