VAMPIRES VS. MAVERICKS
Pros: pay, job security & advancement if gmt (general management trainee)
Cons: 12-14 hr days, foul language, no leadership, sexist, ageist, overly processed, no teamwork, no integrity
It is a matrix organization with so much red tape and processes that nothing cannot get done or executed without making a huge production and taking weeks for approval or decision. There isn't any corporate leadership, just a bunch of foreigners that do not know anything of the US market or any other markets for that matter except for stereotypes and one's assumptions. There isn't any clear direction nor visionaries to lead the organization and grow ORGANICALLY. There is a lack of communication and transparency which makes the work you are doing challenging and uncertain. Expect no teamwork since reward is given to the individual and not the group. Functions work in silos and are incentivized differently resulting at times with functions in conflict and at odds with each other rather than unify toward a common goal. Be prepared to work 12-15 hour work days, including weekends. Poor language and manners (i.e., yelling matches) are commonplace including sexism and discrimination based on your appearance (weight, age, gender). It is a very demotivating and deflating workplace. There is poor employee morale and if given the opportunity of another job with equal pay, the majority would leave!
Outside of the GMTs, be ready not to learn or properly be trained. This is not such a company. I recommend to work at AB if you are either a GMT, a Millennial, and/or an experienced professional trained elsewhere who is a Millennial. Pay is good but not for the long hours, zero work-life balance, in a blood sucking environment who prefer to hire "soldiers" who can execute and enforce leadership's will without question. If you want to be a thinker, a leader or an entrepreneur, Anheuser Busch will NOT be a good fit for you.
