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

    Pros

    Free beer. Company education program is pretty good. Good benefits. Lots of opportunity to move laterally, as long as you're willing to move. You could make a career here, as long as you do what you're told and don't complain.

    Cons

    Poisonous culture, especially in Marketing. Organization does not treat people like individuals, but instead as cogs in a system (unless you happen to be one of the few who are given special treatment for no apparent reason). Decision making is often pushed upward to the people least informed and able to make good decisions. Confusing organizational systems, and middle/upper managers who are only in it for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to flush out the political animals and get people into middle/upper management positions who are actually good managers and leaders.
    Clarify your vision for the company. Winning in Beer 2.1 isn't a vision, it's just a set of objectives.
    Fix the culture. It starts with you.

    I worked at MillerCoors full-time

    Pros

    A strong network of well-educated, driven professionals who focus on results. Flexible work hours and great benefits (gym membership reimbursement, monthly beer allowance, generous health care package, etc.)

    Cons

    Limited options for promotion from entry level roles, effectively pigeon-holing employees into a career path they may not have envisioned when they first started. Significant disconnect between entry-level employees and upper management. Results are prioritized above all else, causing hard-workers to feel like their efforts essentially didn't matter if they didn't hit short-term goals.

    I worked at MillerCoors

    Pros

    None. They don't care about whats important when it comes to brand representation and taking care of their people. I was hired as a manager to re-develop a team and they fought every suggestion.

    Cons

    Don't care about their people. Also, they are cheap. They offered me $20K LESS than my current salary when negotiations started. What an insult. I'm an expert in my industry and this was the worst client I ever worked for. The females are very caddy and unprofessional, as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who actually know what they are doing, and have the experience and numbers to back it up. Then, when they make small suggestions on how to make the team better, don't reject them because you're too cheap. You have a quarterly sales incentive worth $7K for reps, but want to pay the people actually out representing your brand way below market average? Thats why I quit: because you refused to give me the small amount of resources I needed to do my job well. I left your company because it was clear that those above me were less concerned about representing the brand, and more concerned with their personal lives and gossip. Treating your employees poorly will result in low morale which leads to inefficiency and decreased productivity in your business. That BUSINESS 101. Get it together. Pay good people what they are worth and it will be worth it in the log run.

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

    Pros

    Amazing brands. Amazing work that people are doing. Fun industry. Beer is a cool place to work.

    Cons

    Lots of backstabbing. No real support and the organization treats people poor so they leave. They are losing a lot of top talent and they wonder why they have problems with results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking about things you say are true but aren't. For example, there is a lot of talk about diversity but you all are losing diverse talent left and right.
