    I worked at HEINEKEN USA full-time

    Pros

    The people, many there truly bleed green which you see in the incredible amounts of pride everyone has when representing the Heineken name.

    Cons

    There is little trust in the management team. Sales and marketing are stuck in their silos. The same people get picked for new initiatives even though they put emphasis on wanting to be diverse and inclusive. Becomes more of a never ending cycle as there is little recognition for other hard workers. Overworked and underpaid

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at HEINEKEN USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Constantly trying to improve culture. One the best things about working for this company was the sense of family and that they care about their employees happiness and health. They provide great training techniques during on boarding.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between top management downward always lead to hectic deadlines and constantly changing goals/measurements of success. Didn't make enough decisions on a local level for marketing and sales processes to stay locally relevant.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your mind on what the top priorities are, how you want your employees to sell/be measured on success, and try to find some consistency of goals throughout the year.

      Great brand, values based, fun industry.

      Cons

      HR leadership has never been so bad and is a direct cause to people constantly leaving. Absolutely clueless, insincere and the leader lacks integrity. Constant turnover and loss of highly talented people. The beer industry is depressed, Heineken USA is depressing!!

      Advice to Management

      Listen.
