    I worked at MillerCoors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great benefits and pay was fairly decent
    - Fun culture and beer was everywhere
    - Challenging work
    - Friendly people and laid back depending on the department

    Cons

    - The culture has taken a turn for the worse lately
    - Management used to listen to employees, but now they have decided to bring in consultants to tell the company what to do
    - There is a lot of emphasis on learning but literally no promotion or movement from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Respect your employees and utilize their talents. They can do the work that you are paying a lot of money for consultants to do.
    - Promote from within.
    - Do what you say

    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to get a start in a lab setting

    Cons

    What direction is given is usually heading in multiple ways. End up feeling like a number, not a person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the fundamentals of the company. "Quality in all we do and all we are" needs to be followed again.

    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Investment in training employees through their "MillerCoors University"
    People are friendly and willing to teach, the culture is great, and we get to market beer!
    A Work-life balance is encouraged

    Cons

    You have to move to places you might not want to just to advance.
    The beer industry is stagnating in terms of growth so not sure where MillerCoors is going to be in the next 5-10 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MillerCoors, you need some Hispanic beers in your portfolio. Nice try trying to purchase Heineken! Overall I think we are lacking s brand presence in key beer categories.

    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    While I don't always agree with Snr Management's guidance and policies, I have to say that they treat their employees fairly, there is a great collaborative spirit, and well, our product continually puts smiles on peoples' faces. Any job can be frustrating at times, but at least I enjoy going to work every day.

    Cons

    Snr Management is not always in tune to what the consumer wants from our brands. Times have changed and we always seem to be practicing 'catch up' instead of leading the industry. That being said, some of the day to day activities are spent on 'putting out fires' instead of thinking, planning, and executing the strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less talk, more walk.
