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

    Welcome to Temp Land...

    Pros

    - Still somewhat prestigious in the St Louis market, because most people don't know any better
    - Above-average entry-level pay (if you can get on full-time, that is.)
    - In general - smart, fun, upwardly-mobile coworkers

    Cons

    - Doing the work of 2 $60k/year full-timers, as a $14/hour contractor (temp) with NO benefits
    - Watching other contractors get away with doing virtually nothing all day for that same $14/hr
    - 50+ hour work weeks - terrible work/life balance, which is actually worse for the full-timers due to the number of lazy and/or no-nothing contractors everywhere
    - Bleak prospects of getting on full-time, considering almost half of my department is already staffed with contractors.
    - Very little recognition for outstanding performance - Old Guard AB holdouts in middle mgmt are too busy covering their own ass and protecting/promoting buddies, to see the value in anyone new
    - Mixed messages from upper mgmt and conflicting goals across departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stop viewing (and treating) your workforce as an expense... they can be your best asset, and by far your best ambassadors in the marketplace
    - Contractors are NOT saving you money. Hire HALF that number of actual employees, that are experienced and/or motivated - then watch productivity skyrocket.
    - Continue purging Old AB cronies from the middle mgmt ranks... those of us that came in after the buyout don't care about the "good old days", and we're interested in moving forward. Help us get out of the tug-o-war that's going on inside the company.
    - Actually LIVE by the core principles you espouse, and stop just paying lip service to them. A "Program" does not create "Excellence" within a company - bright, motivated people do.
