After reading the comments of current and former employees of AB/InBev following this article, I don't think I want to send my hard-earned dollars there. SWMBO will have to find another brand of yellow fizzy. The comments about the pension are very troubling, because it looks like a straight-up swindle in order for the InBev execs to split $1 BILLION dollars in a couple of years.
As an example of the ridiculousness of cost cutting: At the end of last year, employees couldnt buy any new office supplies, rather had to get approval for used pens and pencils from another brewery.
How cheap is InBev? Well, they recycle the same brewers yeast FIFTEEN TIMES!
The kicker in the whole deal is the bonus the top 40 or so people in the company will get when they pay the note off from the take-over. They will split somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 BILLION. So that explains why they wouldnt give you air if they had you in a jar, if it meant saving a dollar. Its all about the money, their money. Its not the about dream, its not the about culture and it sure the heck isnt about the people.
An AB product hasnt touched these lips in months! Just from a sanitation perspective, I would not want to drink something thats been bottled on a machine that hasnt been cleaned for 2 weeks! You should see the microbe counts in the beer theyre letting out the door. And at the end of the day, buying a Bud is supporting Brito and his thugs. You just cant do it.
Theyre so frugal, they shut the heat off in the office to save money. Im sure OSHA would be proud.
