    manage plays favourites, sacrifice your own bonus for someone else's, thankless work environment, 24 hours on call, poor upper management only concerned with next role rather then developing current talent

    I have been working at Labatt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of potential to move up, plenty of opportunities, great benefits

    Cons

    The company makes billions but the aggressive people costs goals given to the higher ups means some sites are left with less than 50% of their required staff. People regularly work 60+ hours of week to keep up with the work load

    Advice to Management

    Spend money on your people, we are drowning here

    I have been working at Labatt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent career development opportunities, free beer, and lots of fun perks. The best beer portfolio with the best brands in the world

    Cons

    Need to be willing to move around the country to grow in the company beyond the territory manager position. Have to stick handle through head office objectives that interfere with the key objective of actually selling beer

    Advice to Management

    Provides Sales Reps & TM's with a clearer understanding of their position in the company, as well as provide them with a timeline of when and how their career will grow. Allow Reps & TM's to sell beer instead of having to deal with nonsensical head office priorities

    I have been working at Labatt full-time

    Pros

    There is a two tier wage system. The tier one employees do with the defined benefit package still do ok with the overtime available.

    Cons

    This is a company that will fall by the wayside shortly. It is run by a Brazilian company (3G capital) that has a history of destroying companies ie: Tim Hortons, Labatt and Kraft-Heinz to name a few.

    Advice to Management

    There is a difference between "thinking you are smart" and "being smart". The sooner you figure that out, the better off everyone will be!

    Pros

    Taxable beer benefits, some really great coworkers, stable work.

    Cons

    Overworked, lousy/unflexible hours, nepotism/cronyism runs rampant among management, hard work is exploited - not rewarded, pay is benchmarked on the lowest end within the industry, president came in a few years ago and was asked several questions which he just deflected onto his other group members. As the leader of the entire company he couldnt even answer questions without throwing others under the bus.
