Weak Corporate Structure in the Distributor
Logistics Intern (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 17, 2018
The corporate owned distributors are little experiment labs for the corporation. The brewery can send beer to the distributor whenever they want with no warning. They also send new or trial beer to the sales team to try out in the market. This makes running an efficient warehouse almost impossible, however, you are still required to keep and report your numbers as tight as possible and improve year over year in a declining market.

Challenging and Fast paced but not for everyone
Business Process Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 3, 2019
Great company to very quickly develop both technical and leadership skills. The culture is not for everyone, but that is advertised pretty openly in the recruiting process. That is not to say the culture is a bad one, it just takes a very specific type of individual to appreciate the opportunities and environment. The hours are long and you are normally performing job duties that are a level above and a level below your job title. High performance is rewarded, but you do have to know how to play the game as well.
Pros
Salaried compensation includes overtime opportunity, within 3 years you can reach 4 weeks vacation
Cons
Long hours, work life balance is not in the dictionary

Frat boy mentality and environment
Operations (Former Employee) –  Renton, WAJanuary 2, 2019
Frat boy mentality and environment, if you are not part of the inner management circle you will be targeted to be terminated or placed on a disciplinary action plan for your "lack of team work". Then once on the disciplinary action plan, they try to do anything to get you terminated.

High turn-over on management,sales, warehouse, and operations avoid any and all jobs for this employer.
Pros
Free out dated beer
Cons
Poor management

Great Benefits but Frustrating Work Life
Manager (Current Employee) –  Merrimack, NHNovember 11, 2018
Cost cutting across all levels for many years has resulted in overworking of remaining employees requiring 10 to 12 hour workdays without offer for compensation for those hours. Not a job you leave feeling like you accomplished anything at the end of the day. Great benefits for workers and their families and they only promote from within.

Fair Pay, but don't value their employees
Innovation Engineer 1 (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MODecember 6, 2018
I feel I am fairly compensated for the work I do, but the senior management has fostered a culture of mistrust and zero loyalty with their continuous layoffs and reducing benefits year after year. I'm not necessarily looking to leave, but am willing to if there are better options available..again zero loyalty..

Lack of Job Security
Asset manager - Desktop Support Technician (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOOctober 29, 2018
biggest concern is the lack of Job Security.
never knowing when our position would be terminated, and it could be as instant as that day.
with a lack of job security, and knowing that at any day, your position could be terminated, that is enough to cause for a stressful environment.
Pros
Enjoyable environment
Cons
Lack of Job Security

Stressful High speed production
Chemical Process Operator (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLSeptember 11, 2018
Company has shifted greatly since being bought by Inbev. Priorities have gone through a massive change and a great deal of new people hired in to replace the original generation (including me)

Company has shifted primary focus to cost control and Zero Based Budgeting, rather than higher production to achieve more profit.

Still a challenging place to work if you can handle 12 hr. shifts and Day & Night shift.
Pros
Excellent Salary and decent benefits
Cons
Lack of focus on the prime objective. Penny pinching to the extreme.

Opportunity abounds early in your career
Director, Government Affairs (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MO 63118October 9, 2018
This is a fantastic company to work for early in your career. Beyond that the culture is so toxic that it makes a lengthy career there impossible. As such it really is a spring board to work in a more meaningful and fulfilling career elsewhere.
Pros
Two cases of free beer per month, competitive salary and benefits
Cons
Managerial chaos

Do not work here
Operations Maintenance Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CASeptember 10, 2018
Overall I would not advise working at the company. Extremely long, stressful hours with forced weekend work. Work starts early and ends late, typically lasting about 12 hours a day. Senior Management does not foster a good work environment, celebrating ruthlessness throughout the company. It does not matter what results you are driving, if you are disciplining other employees, you will be celebrated.
Pros
Free beer

Lack of advancement
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 17, 2018
Work long hours yet lack of advancement
haven't learned that much
management is poor as they don't want you to advance
workplace culture is based on favoritism
hardest part of the job is lack of understanding
most enjoyable part of the job getting free beer every month
Pros
free beer every month
Cons
no advancement, no promotions, lack of work enthusiasm

Not very good
Branch Manager / Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJanuary 1, 2019
The are only three good things that came out of my experience at Anheuser-Bush: Paycheck, Benefits and Resume Enhancer. The workplace culture was hostile and toxic. The Senior Managers fueled and encouraged back-stabbing and lying. My particular division had an attrition rate of approximately 20%.

Great place for young people right out of college
Director (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOAugust 31, 2018
Once InBev took over Anheuser-Busch, the culture completely changed. There were definitely some good changes initially, and the company was much more fiscally responsible; however, the company has gone too far, and there are not near enough resources (human, technology, financial) to run a smooth operation. I still believe this is a great place for young people to get experience, and then move on. I worked 60-70 hours a week in order to do a great job. Many people do not get the training needed to succeed in the job, which causes frustration for all of the employees.
Pros
Great benefits and free beer
Cons
Poor training for new hires, lack of good leaders

Good Salary
Production Tech/Quality Control Supervisor (Former Employee) –  New Windsor NYDecember 21, 2018
Company was great to work for prior to the takeover by InBev in 2008. The company culture and benefits changed drastically and not for the better. Evidence of this is reflected in the stock price of the new company ABInBev!
Pros
Salary
Cons
Cost of benefits and loss of pension plan.

Company has changed alot since I've been there.
SENIOR MANAGER ENGINEERING (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOOctober 8, 2018
At one time it was the place to work in St. Louis, MO. I left without an opportunity to prove myself during a merger. Which treated people and community poorly. We have a term in St. Louis when a global company buys a locally company - please DO NOT InBev us. I think pretty much sums it up.

Great Company to Advance Your Career
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  United StatesAugust 28, 2018
Anheuser-Busch offers great employee benefits and competitive pay plus ample vacation time. They are willing to hear our new ideas and act on those to increase the efficiency of the business. They treat their employees as family but keep you challenged and engaged.

A fun place to work
GUEST SERVICE SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOOctober 25, 2018
Working at the tour center it is a fun yet complex job. I learned how to improve my public speaking skills and my people skills as well. Working in the tour center is a job that appeals to the younger generation.
Pros
coworkers who are around the same age
Cons
not always taken serious
