    I worked at Pabst Brewing Co. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great group of management during my time of employment. A very exciting place to work as the company itself has been around for over 172 years, with a great history.

    Cons

    Ownership seems to change every so many years, where "restructure" comes to play, meaning your job may not be forever. Times change, and so do trends.

    Advice to Management

    A more thorough training to the employees could lead to a more successful future.

    I worked at Pabst Brewing Co. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, work from home, and you meet a lot of interesting people in the beer business. Plus. your get paid to sell beer! Growing brand portfolio and could be a great job if you have the right direct supervisor.

    Cons

    Too many variables out of your control to hit yearly bonus. Too much travel and basically live out of your car, and not many opportunities for advancement unless your willing to relocate. HR is difficult to get answers in a timely manner and training is pretty much non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    More localized incentive structure.
