    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.

    I worked at MillerCoors (less than an year)

    Pros

    Perks such as company bar to go to after work and gratis (beer), a good company that looks strong on a resume

    Cons

    Moving up or out of some departments is unheard of and departments hold grudges with one another. This means you can innocently take a job, hoping for a career or a long term relationship with the company, only to find out you took a job in the wrong department and will never be taken seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems like management hires at all the wrong times, bringing on more people and cutting hours when unnecessary and then when the department is short handed and needs help they just remove all employee time off requests. This makes employee's feel undervalued and as if not listened too. Also, it is hard to take a manager seriously ever again when they deny time off requests of multiple employee's in a month and then take a two week vacation themselves.

    I have been working at MillerCoors full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salaries and benefits are great and if you want to get a known employer name on your resume consider a start here but don't stay too long.

    Cons

    Used to be a fun place to work. Wrong job for most management personnel-lack of people skills; too technical oriented. Taking perks away but expect more (hours; work loads) from employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more gratitude for long time employees and their knowledge base; practice what you preach; stop the check in the box behaviors.
