    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time

    Pros

    Our products are really amazing. Bar on the top floor of the building (although hours got shortened as punishment for bad performance - thanks management). Fun industry with a lot of opportunity to learn. Good opportunity to move across functions to get exposure to a lot of things.

    Cons

    Leadership is not aligned. Company vision is lacking. Decision rights are too high up for too many decisions. Innovation rarely goes beyond a new product, despite a lot of talk about innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on the same page and trust your people.

    I worked at MillerCoors

    Pros

    Pay rate is good. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Leadership is weak at best. Some employees intimidate leadership and they allow tgem to do nothing while others works very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be fair and consistent and stop giving into the lazy employees.

    Good time working with Miller Coors, I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn about brewery as well as working in a big facility

    Cons

    Depending on your position there may not be much room for growth. Need better communication amongst the departments and employees.

    I worked at MillerCoors full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free Beer
    Decent benefits
    Brewery is clean and updated facilities

    Cons

    Brewery leadership are condescending, untrusting, ungrateful, egotistical maniacs that drive a toxic culture of fear. People in middle mgmt. are fired or demoted on a weekly basis and they bring in a new crop of poor suckers to replace them. This has happened for years at the Eden Brewery. Had to leave for fear of being blamed for something I didn't do. Not willing to be a scapegoat for mgmt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over at the breweries and build a culture of human decency and people-focused. You might get the results you want out of folks when they are not scared for their lives.

    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

    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.
