    I have been working at Molson Coors full-time

    Pros

    Fun industry
    Opportunity for cross functional experience
    Some great people
    Scale brands with large budgets
    Fast pace
    Very quick advancement opportunities
    Alcohol business is more exciting than most

    Cons

    Internal marketers are simply not qualified
    All the high performers left so there's very little experience in the department.
    Leadership is spinning. VP's are completely out of touch with our customers, consumers and the industry.
    Processes with trade marketing are cumbersome and ineffective.
    Teams trying to tackle multi-million dollar problems using junior level marketing managers.
    Big ideas are failing and brand teams are playing it safe due to so many failed campaigns and research results.
    Agencies are frustrated, lacking direction.
    Tracking consistent volume and share declines on our biggest brand Coors Light for 5 consecutive years with Canadian following the trend. It's not sustainable performance to grow the business.
    There's a strange tolerance for inter office relationships creating a great deal of colleague resentment. Unheard of at top CPG companies.
    Incredible lack of confidence in the overall marketing strategies.
    Culture has declined significantly. People survey results triggered task forces and consultants scrambling to come up with programs to engage employees. We just lost 2 more brand managers last week. It's a rotating door. People aren't happy, Period.
    Roles aren't clear and everyone is confused.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified managers and leaders from companies who can provide focus and know how to win.

    Bring back some beer experience. We're struggling to execute ideas.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. They attract top talent and the work environment is second to none. They have a commitment to train, especially in sales.

    Cons

    Bigger beer companies are struggling to gain market share and volume and therefore change has been constant. If you thrive in a changing industry and work environment then this is the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to attract top talent and continue to invest in your employees. Turnover is healthy but too much turnover changes culture.

    Pros

    - Lots of flexibility with working from home
    - Half day Fridays
    - Family friendly
    - 52 free 12 packs of beer a year!
    - Casual dress code - current CEO often wanders around in a hoodie and jeans!
    - Most people are fun to work with
    - Fascinating industry and lots of things to work on!

    Cons

    - Lots of mediocre and lazy talent, which makes it difficult to get things done.
    - Poor leadership (in Canada) that provides little direction to a large commercial team
    - Decision making by consensus means that leadership is slow, leading the company to be late to the game with many things
    - Brand management does not operate like it would at other CPG firms; it is not the best training ground for young marketers
    - Under-resourced; not enough bodies for all the work necessary
    - Poor processes, when combined with poor leadership makes it difficult to achieve objectives
    - Career progression can be slow; it really depending on the function one is in

    Advice to Management

    Make well-reasoned decisions and stick to them. Focus on implementation of strategy. Be patient - big changes take time to bear fruit!

    Pros

    The people at Molson Coors are huge on talent. There are some perks, of course some include free beer.

    Cons

    The talent of some people is wasted, management needs to advance employees who have more than proven their capabilities and worry less about themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Look inside your own organization before hiring more people that you will only lay off in another couple of years.

    Great team, good sales experience and fun environments. Free beer and great connections working in the field. All around incredible Sumer job.

    Keep up the great work and keep hiring internally from this program.
