    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    No two days are the same, constantly faced with interesting and exciting challenges which provide great development opportunities. Very informal - everyone's ideas and opinions are valued. Given real chance to take responsibility and ownership for your results

    Cons

    Would not suit someone looking for a 9 to 5 job. The push for results can have a negative effect on work life balance at times. The IT systems and equipment is poor.

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast changing environment brings a lot of opportunity to develop and progress in career. Employees development is taken seriously with the number of trainings available. Management is informal; communication has improved recently. Looking great on CV as ABI is known for execution and result-orientation.

    Cons

    Flexible working (such as work from home) is only available for selected employees; IT infrastructure is quite poor; there is a mix of people who work for the company for decades and fresh graduates which does not create positive atmosphere. There is no yearly payrise, bonus is not guaranteed.

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Able to move to different countries if you want to and can make the grade. well recognised brands.

    Cons

    There is no focus on the employees, no pay review of any kind for the last 4 years, lots of redundancies in the UK as the business centralises to Belgium or off-shores to Hungary to save money. At the same time the remaining staff are expected to do more with less people for little recognition as the bonus scheme and pension is eroded every year as well. The HR department are virtually non existent and spend most of their time writing policies that don't get published. If you're stuck for work I'm sure that there are worse places to be but go in knowing that it certainly isn't all sunshine.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work environment was great and there was a good relationship between employees. The salary and benefits provided were good.

    Cons

    The managers were not supportive of each other and colleagues were scared of more redundancies to come, making overall morale low. There was rivalry between different sites which was not healthy and a lot of negativity.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Passionate industry with a lot of history and very knowledgeable people. Hours can be tough at times but overall not completely impossible to maintain a balance.

    Cons

    This company talks a lot about its people and how they are the most important and valuable asset, but do not believe it. Brito cares about one thing and one thing only, which is the bottom line. This complete disconnect between what management said and what it actually did made this the unhappiest environment I have ever worked in. I worked at InBev during the AB acquisition, and while I wasn't made redundant myself I understand that redundancies will and must happen after any merger or acquistion. However, the way that it was handled was an insult to those employees who had given years of service to either InBev or AB; terrible communication, changes to deadlines and poor severance packages made it clear that management viewed employees as expendable. I resigned not long after to a much happier workplace, and would recommend any and all to stay away.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch InBev

    Pros

    Brilliant people to work with, everyone pulls together when needed. Very flexible when comes to needing to adapt working hours

    Cons

    Job stability, there have been many mergers and takeovers in the past 10 years and it leaves people feeling uneasy

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch InBev

    Pros

    The chance to work for a worldwide company with household names as brands. A competitve salary and a final salary pension if have been there for a long time (not available to new starters).

    Cons

    Poorly managed since the transfere from Interbrew to Inbev. Staff cost cutting exercise released the wrong people, only a handfull of engineers left on site and they were the ones with the knowledge to run the place. The shop floor had proposed to take the senior managemen to court over an attempt to change their hours from 39 to 42 a week. The company backed down before it reached court.
