If you're in the business of fun, you're not a fun place to work
Technical Support Consultant (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – August 28, 2017
The pre-buyout AB had one foot and half of the other stuck in the past. A couple toes wiggled loose to experience the present-day times. The difference between employee and contractor was stark, with the former treating the latter like dirt. It was, allegedly, an honor to work for AB, yet there was little honor in how I as a contractor was treated. Weekly staff meetings were thinly-disguised sales pitches run by folks who were perplexed that the drinking market has changed since the 1980s. Some of the dumbest people I have ever encountered were selling beer for AB, thereby ruining my view of salespeople for years. I've slowly gotten over this prejudice but it has taken a long time. I'm actually happy that AB was bought out, and even happier that I wasn't there to see it.
