Pros

AB InBev loves money, in fact, they worship it. Pay and bonus are higher than standard but it comes at a high price to your humanity.

Cons

Little respect for others in the workplace. If you care about people then this is not the culture for you. Their culture is simple, "the end justifies the means". Lying to employees is at the heart of the culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your culture will clash with many Americans. As the public understands the culture and the company behind the product. Many Americans will not drink your beer.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop VPO. Although it contains some good stuff this project has not been managed well and will not get any backing from staff going forward. VPO means redundacies to the men actually running the plant

    Pros

    For non-family oriented young type A men, this is a great place. There is a high expectation of promotable employees to relocate, often. Compensation can be lucrative, but it is highly leveraged against acheiving "KPI's" which some feel are are intentionally set too high.

    Cons

    Anheuser-Busch was acquired by InBev in November of 2008. The legacy A-B people (like me) are generally not happy. The legacy InBev people are generally very happy. Outsiders who join the company now are brought in by the legacy InBev people, so they are generally happy too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop giving speechs to the employees than include your opinion that of every 500 employees, only 5 or so are truly valuable. Its usually the only part of the speech they remember.
