Pros

Truly there were not any redeeming traits of working at this company.

Cons

Expectations of management team and hours out of touch with reality. Average work week is 70 hours. Company talked a lot of wonderful idas but practiced none of them.

    Pros

    Benefits are good they start from day 1

    Cons

    Work not distributed equally.
    Do not pay time and a half, and have little respect for employees.
    Long hours no family life.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better and show a little bit more respect for the employees that actually keep the company afloat

  2. Lack of cohesiveness across the company

    Pros

    -Compensation is above average for the work
    -Self-directed learning allows motivated employees to grow their knowledge in the job areas they want, but needs to be kept in check and standardized
    -See a strong desire from management to improve, but does not have a cohesive plan for it.

    Cons

    -Very far behind the times, just implementing 5S. While I'm not a fan of "flavor of the month" type projects in general, the company seems stuck back in the early 90s and just starting to move forward with putting an emphasis on statistical process control and continuous improvement.
    -Unions - standardized pay scales based entirely on time worked instead of pay for performance only gentrifies the employees and does not promote continuous improvement and excellence.
    -Lack of standardized procedures or training both in-plant and across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Training - STANDARDIZE IT! I understand that the company is relatively new, having only been around for 3 years, but the culture is too old and needs to move faster. Utilize the strengths of each of the small companies and bottlers acquired over the years to improve each plant.
