Pros

Good salary, 25 days annual leave with the option to buy another 5, strong pension plan and shares scheme. Strict 8am - 4pm, so good work life balance. Good benefits and many discounts through the employee benefits programme. Very strong company for your CV, new technology in the manufacturing plants. Company pays for all your expenses when you are on business trips - days off the office for a meeting somewhere else.

Cons

Poor training and development plan. Been here for 2 years, absolutely no training plan and development opportunities. No matter how hard you try and how good you are at your job, there is absolutely no progression to a better role - higher level role. They even say it clearly to you that there is no progression. If there is a promotion, it always goes to people who are unskilled or external candidates. Management team with no qualifications, no technical knowledge and really bad attitude. No common sense. Poor management and completely disorganized for a company as big as Coca Cola. If you stay more and do more hours, there is no recognition, no extra pay, no days in leau.

Advice to Management

Invest on people who have the skills, qualifications, passion and enthusiasm to develop and progress. Get rid of all the managers who are unable to manage a team. Provide the employee with a proper training plan and development opportunities.

Pros

Share plan Company pension "Gym" if you have time to use it.

Cons

Terrible culture:The atmosphere is terrible, the employees don't feel motivated. The managers pass the work onto others but they do not provide any solutions. Long hours of work: Get ready to work until 6 pm and on Tuesday, when they do the forecasting, until 8 pm. You spend about 20 hours per week just having conference calls to manage the portfolio, so there is no time for making improvements. Poor managers: Sincerely, half of the managers do not have the right attitude and mindset for their positions and the culture leads them to have a very poor behavior. They have quality people in the business but they are not the leaders because they are not friends of the directors. No training plan: There is no plan, it is basically "look here" and "go there", but there is not a smart explanation of the processes, annual objectives are not discussed and poor system (the company has SAP but I is not used enough ). Therefore everything is in done in Excel.

Advice to Management

They should describe the role perfectly and not integrate more administration functions that are not part of the description. Have a training plan, being such a big company, it is pathetic that they do not have a serious plan.
