    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.

    I have been working at Molson Coors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free beer. Good people outside of upper management.

    Cons

    They don't treat their employees with respect. When it was Molson everybody was treated well and compensated for a hard days work. Since the merger with Coors the corporation has been taking more and more from its employees.

    Advice to Management

    They should review and follow their corporate values.
