    I have been working at New Holland Brewing part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, managers are kind and understanding, fairly easy to get hired, VERY flexible scheduling

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to get hours, bad scheduling sometimes (too many people on slow weekdays, not enough on fast weekends)

    Advice to Management

    Overall good, maybe work on scheduling days better based on usual flow of customers

    Focus on developing the talents of your employees and compensate them well for the job that they are doing.

    I worked at New Holland Brewing part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Leadership does a great job introducing themselves to new hires.
    - They are a growing company, opening a branch in Grand Rapids and more to come elsewhere
    - Co-workers are mostly friendly and welcoming

    Cons

    - Room for advancement
    - Lower pay than I expected
    - Managers should have more accountability
    - Unprofessional behavior exemplified by much of the waiting staff when serving customers

    I have been working at New Holland Brewing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are cool. Servers and bartenders acquire thick wallets.

    Cons

    Not very professional. Middle managers need a lot of work.

    Advice to Management

    Middle Management needs work.

    Pros

    Great beer, pub atmosphere at brewpub.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership. 1/2 the partner team does very little work and uses the company as their own person party place. Critical advice is not wanted or tolerated. Culture of fear has taken hold because good hard working employees who care are let go if they complain about working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror, the low morale at the company is a relfection of leadership. Nobody enjoys working in an atmosphere of fear.

    Pros

    Small company but poised for growth
    Good fringe benefits (at our restaurant)
    Management has an open-door policy
    A great group of people to work with
    Fun, casual, low-key atmosphere

    Cons

    Disconnect between two locations even though they are less than 5 miles apart
    Senior leadership in some departments is lacking
    Too much growth too fast

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and take care of things before looking for more growth. Your employees are a great, loyal bunch of people that feel undervalued - focus more on us than on the "next big thing".

    I have been working at New Holland Brewing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team, great beer, great atmosphere. I can not say enough good things! I absolutely love my job and company. The love spreads far outside of Michigan. Truly one of the best beers I have had and one of the best companies I have worked for. Owners, management, brewers, and sales all have their heads on straight and love to sling out heady beer!

    Cons

    The only downside maybe the overall awesomeness! There are no cons that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Happy people around!
