What our users are saying about working for Anheuser-Busch InBev
As much as they are trying to make an effort to be more inclusive and have meritocracy reflected across many people, unfortunately, it still very much is an old boys club.
I was very disappointed in the leadership and overall culture of this organization. Sexism, harassment, and gender bias were rampant. Leadership was unprofessional and inappropriate.
Toxic environment! I hated there so much that I quit during my probation. Everyone only cares about their own team's KPI. If you ever need anything from a cross-functional team, they'll say no, it'll hurt their KPI. No collaboration, very male oriented. When I quit, my manager said HR told him not to hire a mom. And that I will never go back to workplace.
It felt like it was important to social climb than it was to do a good job.
The company values read one way on paper and manifest day to day in toxic ways. Not a female friendly place.
Women are not represented at the most senior levels of leadership. It is a South American-Belgian boys club, where the most senior executives and their wives all mingle and socialize outside work and then promote each other up the ranks. Most leaders have not always delivered results, instead have given their lives and souls to the “company”.
Claims meritocracy yet oddly promotes few women to senior roles. Yet it is clear women often perform just as well as men. You move positions if people “know” you or like you. This type of purely networking-based culture (many times over beer after hours) becomes uncomfortable and feels unfair for women.
Claims they are results focused culture yet face time is absolutely critical. Very “macho” and old school environment rewarding working hard and not smart. Be ready to be viewed as a slacker if you arrive after 8:30 am and leave before 6:30 pm. Women with families are constantly trying to sneak out of meetings to relieve their nannies as meetings go late into the evening. Meanwhile lots of the senior men have stay at home spouses and do not prioritize their family life. Not a family friendly place.
People email and text 24-7-365 treating everything as urgent. Everyone works over their limited vacation out of guilt. Everyone I’ve seen exercise work life balance has “left” the business. Don’t even think about asking to work remotely.
Parental leave is a joke. Few male leaders take much leave and the women who do take leave work throughout their leave through email/texting their teams.
On a day to day basis everyone is not set up for success with the tools they need to deliver, therefore everyone feels they are being constantly evaluated and eventually at risk of being fired - accordingly, people’s fuses are short, making collaboration often difficult and day to day colleague interactions cold and hostile.
Very little celebration or socializing for a beer company - everyone treats one another secretly as competition. It feels as if it is all about just surviving, not thriving.
Hides behind its culture as an excuse not to get with the times. Know that they will chew you up and spit you out. You deserve so much better.
This company has a TOXIC culture. I didn't realize the extent of the toxicity until I left and worked elsewhere.Rampant sexism. I was called every name in the book, laughed out of rooms, and consistently doubted and belittled for being a woman (at the formative age of 23...) AB's culture is reductive -- both management and independent distributors view women as promotional models incapable of leading or making high-level decisions. I was managed by racist, sexist men who had little more than an associate's degree. It was degrading.
If you have a choice, don't put yourself through this bs. You deserve better.
Anheuser Busch wasa terrible place to be a woman, besides being the literal only woman in my department I was constantly treated differently for being a woman. Within the first months of my employment there I had a brewer (someone who I managed) tell me that I'm just a girl and not a woman who can lead. Besides this I dealt with constant comments that demeaned woman that ranged from more benevolent sexism to over misogyny.
Rampant harassment, sexism, and gender gap pay. Human Resources doesn't care. Lawyers pay off former employees so they can never speak about these issues publicly once they leave. Management at A-B is sad. Leadership brags about world class training and taking ownership but it's just a lie that they feed you from day 1. Culture here is toxic, everyone looks miserable most mornings. 10+ years at this company wreaks havoc on the work ethic and personality of managers. Noticed a few patterns throughout A-B's middle management. They prefer to hire men, and it's a good ole boys club so you need to be straight, right leaning, and a total douchebag to get promoted. They'd rather hire employees that are less educated and sometimes slower learners. They desire workers that don't want to move up too fast, and that don't expect much in the way of promotions or bonuses. A-B leadership knows that they can underpay, and keep a mediocre employee for longer--a person that isn't very intelligent won't understand that their position could end at anytime as A-B "trims the fat" with new technology. Leadership wants oblivious and cheap employees that won't leave the company before they're ready to let them go. Management is known to fire some of their best senior analysts & even the most promising entry level employees to save money and to keep control of lower level employees. Managers across the board are: Unable to motivate their team. Lack vision for the future. Limited diversity. Threatened by new talent because of a constant fear for job cuts. Bad work environment for an entrepreneur or innovator or a woman. If you want to be underpaid, and get mentored by D-list management that were scraped from the bottom of the barrel at other companies then work here. If you are comfortable with the fact that A-B will eventually fire you and take away all benefits--go for it!
I was a contractor there for just under 2 years. I liked the people I worked with but the atmosphere was very intense and competitive. Not my cup of tea. If you are a woman with a drive then this can be a great company with decent perks, but if you are more on the laid back and just do your job type then you may want to look elsewhere.
This is the perfect place for 20-30 year old.
I've have had problems with gender pay differences and not being allowed to apply for a job that I was qualified for. They gave the job to someone else with no qualifications and asked me to train her!
The environment was very pro men. Women coworkers are far and few between, and often treated differently than men. Managers and directors micro managed to the point of harassment. The overall treatment of employees is extremely unprofessional.
Fratty atmosphere. Very sexist culture driven by Brazilian leadership. Comments on appearance, marginalisation normally. Groped at holiday party. Never again.
While the salary is reasonable in STL the hours are not, and the jobs are moving to NY where the salaries are not scaled for living in that city. The claim is the salaries are low because bonuses are high, but that's not consistent or viable for most. There are no cost of living increases, one joke of a lactation room in STL, and one woman on the North American leadership (MANCOM) team who is competent and talented, but obviously only on the team so they can say they value women while they ignore her and undermine authority. I was laid off when I wouldn't follow my job to NY and I haven't heard of many people in NY who are happy.
This is by far a Man run company. They do seem to choose the men over the women when promoting. There are also just not a lot of women there. It is a great company other than if you want to advance, because it's never "in the budget" if you graduate college and want a 40 hour week or if you just want to be paid the same as everyone else in the department you just moved into.
Production jobs are very apparently dominated by men, but the smaller community of women is always supportive of each other and for the most part has equal opportunity. ABI adheres very well to its principle that hard working employees will be rewarded at the pace of their talent, and this is totally regardless of gender.
Very unprofessional at the work environment.. snide comments made and talking behind employees backs, but acts like your best friend. The women I worked with were not trustworthy or processional. Very prejudice
Males outpace female employees in most departments.
nightmare for women. I was sexually harassed verbally, asked about my sexual preferences, subjected to unwanted touching and groping, and generally treated like a second class citizen. I was a senior manager and was told to 'look nice' for presentations and customer meetings. I would avoid as a woman. They don't seem t care about equality - women are only good for ads.
The brewing industry is male dominated, so there is still opportunity to create a more female friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately, like most major companies there are no women on the board of directors and very few in positions of power.
