No work/life balance depending on department
Business Process Manger (Current Employee) –  HoustonNovember 2, 2017
The packaging department is awful. Leadership manages by intimidation, and lacks maturity. There is no work life balance. There are great opportunities to advance, but you have to give up any life outside of work. You work lots of weekends (both planned and unplanned) and get called in multiple nights per week. 18-24 hour days are not uncommon. Life of a line manager at AB is a mess due to the unsustainable process, which is caused by time/financial constraints put on by lean manufacturing.
Pros
Ability to quickly advance
Cons
work life balance, unsustainable process, unrealistic goals

Sucks
Warehouse Lead/Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Canton, OHNovember 2, 2017
Some of the people their are nice however corporate initiatives kill employee relations. It seems like they are more concerned about diversity requirements and everyone towing the corporate bottom line. The everyday employee is not thought of.

Company is great but upper management screws everything for everyone.
TAM (Former Employee) –  FloridaOctober 29, 2017
Everything is a priority, mandatory and has to do 100% of everything to get any paid offs. It’s a hurry up and wait, get pulled in every directions and a lot of contradictions. Say one thing today and do another tomorrow, not a company of its word and do a lot of illegal things thru loop holes. Use loop holes to get around things, just like the Possion, programs they create and the Company’s they use to hire and then fire you as when and how they feel fit.
Pros
Trust you as far as doing the right things to do your job.
Cons
Others don’t do what they are suppose and we all pay the consequences.

Very cut throat during the merger
Global Sourcing Manager (Former Employee) –  Brussel-HoofdstadOctober 24, 2017
Amazing company culture. Very centered around results and not structured. Constantly moving at the global level and no work life balance. Surrounded by very high performing individuals. Company is beginning to recognize that much of the leadership was overwhelmed with Brazilian males from AMBEV.

Consultant (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOOctober 24, 2017
Very unorganized management. Employees like numbers. They will give away job any time to cheap labor overseas. Management does not have IT knowledge. Decision taken based on non technical terms.

Guest Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOOctober 24, 2017
Anheuser Busch was a fantastic place to work at. It was a fun environment at the tour center and I looked forward to every day at work. It is also such a beautiful place to work in a historic neighborhood of St. Louis.

Denver Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Denver, COOctober 23, 2017
Was a sales rep, pay was barely above minimum wage, with large goals for commission/bonus achievement (not horrible, but just difficult to achieve consistently given the market operating within - probably set by some analyst not operating within the field, ergo them not seeing/understanding the entire picture.

This global company has lost its local hometown feel. Great employees, but management is removed. Many St. Louis jobs have been lost to New York or Europe.

It Could Be So Much Better
Service Representative (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOOctober 16, 2017
A typical day as a service rep is pretty slow depending on when members decide to come in, besides doing transactions the only other things to do is take online training courses which can become pretty boring over time.
I learned more patience when dealing with others.
Management over my department is poor, no support for me or others as an employee, a lot of favors for certain people, and rules are very unclear due to different information being given.
The workplace is pretty relaxed for the most part but at this location it can get pretty busy and that's when it gets less relaxed.
The hardest part of the job is remembering all the different procedures for transactions and remembering how to work the old computer system since they have us using a new one but not everything works on it so you have go back and forth.
The most enjoyable is the people I work with, meetings having an open bar, and some of the members can really brighten your day.
Pros
Hour lunch, ability to move to different departments, snack machines
Cons
Part time benefits are mainly reimburstments

Trade Activation Manager (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJOctober 9, 2017
Good Entry Level position within the Food/Beverage Industry. Since the Brazilians took over the company culture has changed for the worse. Advancements are very few and far between. Unless you are Brazilian consider yourself just a number within ABInBev.
Pros
Free Beer
Cons
Lack of Management. Career Advancement.

Sales Development Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 2, 2017
This company has a famously competitive culture. If you do well you can rise quickly; if not, you are out. Bonus structure reflects this -- people more often than not don't make bonuses, as goals are set high.

Poor Management
Brand Activation Manager (Former Employee) –  Carson, CASeptember 29, 2017
Being a brand activation manager may be the funnest job to have at Anheuser Busch but unfortunately, the management at this particular branch made the job dull, unnecessarily stressful, and resulted in high turnover.

You need to complete 26 activations a month but when you reach that you're told you need to shoot for more. Even if you schedule your activations to give yourself one weekend day off they'll say its not enough and you HAVE to work all holidays. Not some, ALL.

Two weekly early morning meetings you're made to attend, with almost none of the information pertaining to the brand activation manager position.

They market this job as you get to make your own schedule but after the meetings, and constant nagging to book more events, all for less than $40k a year, its not worth it.
Pros
Getting to bring your friends to your samplings at bars
Cons
Working every single weekend and holiday
