Good environment, poor management

Tehcnologist (Former Employee)
Samlesbury, England (UK)

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

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

ConsThe 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.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about your employees and value them and don't only think about profits.

Commercial Manager

Mabager (Current Employee)

I have been working at InBev

ProsInbev has a Strong Culture that together with its Great Products make a Friendly environment to work.

ConsThere is a huge Lack of information towards the employees. Inbev is too Cash focused (products are secondary) and it makes us lose interest in the job.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe senior management should Strive for better communication with employees and promote a positive message.

Penny Wise and Pound Foolish

Manager (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO (US)

I have been working at InBev

ProsIn St. Louis, most of the people are still first-rate; carryovers from the "old A-B" when the rewards attracted the best & brightest. This is changing with layoffs and people leaving to find better jobs. People still try to work together (within departments and across departments) to get the job done right. One good thing about new management: They are accessible and down to earth. In this respect, an improvement and very refreshing.

ConsIf you take a job here, know that you will be doing the work of 2 - 3 people since all departments were cut into the bone. Transition to InBev is being horribly mismanaged. Employees are being told benefit cuts, salary freezes, etc. are due to "the economic environment" but everyone knows A-B is doing just fine! Total compensation is now being re-set to the 50th percentile of marketplace. Quality employees are leaving, and more will leave once the job market opens up. Much is made of the opportunities available in the "meritocratic" environment but this only seems to apply to Director level and above. Low-class things being done in the name of cost-cutting; pay bills in 120 DAYS!, micro-manage (or eliminate) necessary business tools like printer paper, continuing education, etc.

Advice to Senior Managementa) You bought the company so you have the right to run it as you see fit. However, realize that there are vital functions NOT BEING DONE because, you know, there are only 60 hours in the week and employees are only putting out fires. This will create some catastrophes in a few months. b) The company you bought is as good as it is because it made a point of attracting good people. If you want to keep good people, you will need to make some accommodations to what is important to workers in the U.S.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
