    Pros

    Good benefits, room for advancement

    Cons

    Management believes in lean staffing. It can be hard to learn new roles, because you are often buried with things to do.

    I worked at MillerCoors

    Pros

    Cheap beer, provided uniforms, friendly co workers decent pay. Fun free tour, good history, onsite health center and fitness facility.

    Cons

    I was hired here as an overtime relief employee back in 2010, I stayed here for three years and was never able to actually get hired full time (even though they always promised it) I was hard working and never missed any work, if three years isn't enough to prove yourself to an employer nothing is. Employees always are on different jobs, lots of errors and lots of confusion make the workers resent each other, this company wastes more beer then they actually ship out it seems like. Equipment is always breaking down since it is from like the 1950's. Little to no training ever happens and they have like 4 people running entire lines.

    Advice to Management

    Want to be more cost effective? How about assigning a person one job so they know the ins and outs of that one job and you won't have as much waste. Craft beer is slowly killing off this old school brand and their watered down "beers",the younger generations are going to know this company as a thing of the past if you guys don't get more creative and soon. Retro labeling can only go so far. So please start making a beer like the Germans or local craft brewery's do.

    Pros

    Overall a good Company that believes in Insights and Innovation to maintain their leadership in market

    Cons

    Currently there is a lot of uncertainty about the future of the company and what shape it is going to take. The turnover rate is pretty high

    Advice to Management

    Try to reduce the turnover because we are loosing a lot of knowledge that keeps the company ahead of its competitors

    Pros

    What can be more fun than working with beer! Total Compensation is competitive (although, it is based on receiving lower salary raises with the remainder consisting of a high bonus – dependent on company/individual performance), Free Beer (3 cases a month with an extra case during the month of December and your Birthday) is always a plus, Free access to local events (i.e. Summer Fest in Milwaukee, WI), and 401K employee matching up to 5% with an after-tax Roth 401K option.

    Cons

    In the beer industry, the mainstream brands have been dropping in shares due to the increased public desire of flavored products / craft beers. With a generation that grew up with a variety of different flavors of Mountain Dew, they are looking for a significant level of variety in their alcoholic beverages as well. As a result, with typically large volume products dropping and the pressure to produce a variety of small volume flavored product lines, the beer industry is struggling to be innovative, to find ways to cut costs in order to accommodate the constant production change-overs, and to simply change in general. With respect to working in this environment, the pressure to cut costs has forced Health Benefits to move over to High Deductible Savings Plans, the push to utilize personal cell phones with partial reimbursement over company provided equipment, and the general practice of trying to do more with less people. There are significant concerns as to whether or not the leadership is able to take the company to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the company’s strategy is fully distributed at all levels of the organization. The strategy that is pushed downward is interpreted differently within each of the company’s major departments to the point that each department has a tendency to “do its own thing” – resulting in the further entrenchment of a silo-type culture. What activities is Marketing doing that is in alignment with the company’s strategy, what is Operations doing to support Marketing’s efforts, etc. In general, the strategy is communicated; however, it is not properly being distributed at the lower levels.
