I worked at InBev

Pros

A known company. Everyone knows your products.

2 cases a month...while it lasts....

Cons

All they care about is cost. 120 payment terms to suppliers? No one wants to work with you due to that.

Open office enviroment causes a lot of negativity. The only way to make more money is to become a manager. Makes people not want to talk to eachother, or work with eachother. A lot of backstabing involved.

No one cares about technicals, only powerpoints. Everyone is managing upwards. Managers do not care about employees under them.

Everything is about cost... and they sacerfice quality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Brito needs to understand the total cost is important. Not just procured costs.

    Pros

    With economy down, it is employment until the next round of lay-offs come around. There are still a few decent people left.

    Cons

    Morale low-top management passes along that downsizing finished, only to come along a few weeks later and lay-off more people. Work doesn't go away, just absorbed by those remaining. Most salaried people worked 50 to 60 hours a week with AB, now 60 to 70 hours a week. One comment--Its still light out,you don't need to leave yet.
    Salary bands lowered, so if you are above the top of the band, you won't get a raise.
    Previous posting mentioned ability to get promoted with willingness to move--look at company demograhics, very few people with company over 40 years old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Brito and the board run the company . Yes, most people know that. Employees don't have to be happy with what is happening though. The employee survey asks the quesition if people would leave for another company offering a little higher salary, most people are looking for a position somewhere else--regardless of salary. Even the newly hired college people are getting full of the Kool-Aid, and realize it is a short term future with this company.

    Pros

    encourages learning
    OT is there if you want it

    Cons

    too much low hanging fruit getting away with too much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the low hanging fruit
    tell us the truth - dont tell us that abi wants the best and nothing but the best but instead continues to cut benefits, reward those who dont perform, and destroy morale
