    Tough culture - focus on compensation only

    I have been working at InBev

    Pros

    Compensation is second to none and long term incentives are extremely good. You'll get rich at this company if you stay for 10 years.

    Cons

    Very tough culture. No work-life balance. Long hours. Sacrifice long term gains for short term benefits. Tough to manage with 6 P&L's and no global power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better understand the US corporate culture in order to make it successful. Be more willing to focus on long-term benefits rather then short term wins.

    Pros

    Fast changing environment, new and more demanding challenges on a regular basis - you really need to keep up with the pace or you just wont cope and either leave or "be restructured"

    Great financial rewards (I was at Director level when we were maxing out on results)

    Great development opportunities - not in a formalised way but "on the job" / "sink or swim" stuff which I appreciate isn't for everyone.

    Cons

    Unless you have the right boss, work / life balance can be a joke.

    Development can be to other roles that are outside of your comfort zone which can obvioulsy be a good thing but sometimes the leap is too far;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep driving the share price.
    Provide more opportunities to non-Brazilians
    Change the formula for Bud in Europe - it is cr;p
