I worked at Anheuser-Busch

Pros

The people who work at Anheuser-Busch are some of the most talented and well rounded people i have meet in my professional career.
The company has a great office environment and has several in office activities to keep the work week short and enjoyable.

Cons

Union workers abound on the manufacturing floor and there is a bit of divide between hourly and salary employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Integrate the hourly employees with the salary employees and the overall atmosphere of the plant would be greatly improved

    Pros

    Chance to work for a global company; beer industry is fun; free beer every month; if you like an open work environment with no frills, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Still transitioning from old culture to new; cost cutting is too much; the main objective is to keep cash flow moving to the owners (think Carl Icahn); low employee morale; fear of what will happen to employee pay & benefits after the 3 year time limit (since the takeover) is up in November 2011 (there was a condition in the takeover that no changes could be made to salaries/benefits in first 3 years); bonus is based on some objectives out of employee's control - and mostly impossible to reach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consistent in your messages. You want salaries & benefits to be around 50% industry standard - which is a reduction for most employees & is contrary to the belief system of the previous ownership, but you want to be the best beer company in a better world. Much of the profit that has been made for the owners so far has been on the backs of the employees (in the form of jobs lost & wage/benefits reductions). And stop draping the American flag around the winner of a contest - it's disrespectful to the American flag.
