    Pros

    The company cares about the environment and its employees. Many perks such as acupuncture, free beer, etc. Strong initiatives such as the sustainability team, organizing company events. Awesome Christmas party!

    Cons

    Growing pains are causing the company not to compensate its hourly employees well, especially considering the location is far from where most people live. It's easy to feel ignored or undervalued.

    I worked at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co full-time

    Pros

    The health care is great covers a lot and it doesn't cost employee that much. The other benefits are good too.

    Cons

    Work life balance is lacking. Management needs training they don't know how to mange anyone or even communicate to each other. It's a really big place and with that you need communication. Durnjng the summer it's crazy busy and you will work your but off! BOH employees compensation is less than every other department. There is no pay deference based on skill everyone starts out at the same rate.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to hold everyone accountable for there actions equally and communicate!!!
