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

    Pros

    - Complete project ownership - Massive career growth potential - You sell beer! - Lots of perk (free beer, event tickets, etc) ABI asks a lot of its employees but the job is rewarding and the meritocracy means that good works is quickly rewarded with promotions.

    Cons

    - Long hours - Management can be disorganized - Onboarding is a confusing process you really need to take upon yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the confusing onboarding process.

    I have been working at Anheuser-Busch InBev

    Pros

    Free beer and great people(that eventually quit). The learning curve is huge and you gain a lot of knowledge in a short period of time.

    Cons

    Strictly short term focused. Turnover is huge and you're often thrown another persons mess because they have left the company.

    I worked at Anheuser-Busch InBev full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There is free beer at company events and free beer every month to take home. AB Inbev has a great portfolio of beers. Any one can become a manager.

    Cons

    It is hard to give a balanced review of a company that doesn't have much in the 'Pros' column. No work/life balance, just work. Target setting includes reducing costs, e.g. costs of benefits. Each year benefits and compensation is less than the preceding year. Any one can become a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to listen.

    Pros

    The best company to work for Free Beer Cabs are awesome

    Cons

    Call any of your friends before you make a decision to join this company, only few verticals are good to work here, so ensure you don’t make a mistake by joining the wrong team. Operations is mess as the leadership is bad, they only know how to spend money in 5 star hotels for engagements, this is all an eye wash don’t get to carried away with the leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect and you will do well as a company
