Does Coca-Cola European Partners pay for a gym membership?

Pros

Good flexible location working approach, a balance of what's required A good well known iconic brand to work for Passionate people Onsite gym - Nuffield

Cons

Decision making within the business is restricted with little empowerment for people making their own decisions VPs across Supply Chain, Commercial & HR are open to little creativity suggested by their teams and aren't necessarily great role models for good engagement, inclusivity and diversity. Clear issues around levelling of jobs and fairness where roles are considered of equal responsibility and scope Poor HR Leadership and not best in class by a long way Systems lag behind and are outdated.

Advice to Management

Tackle the hierarchy in the business starting with VP's culture of creating this environment. Manage their performance more effectively around people rather than just business targets. Focus on people as well as the Supply Chain targets and Commercial agenda Encourage (and actually deliver rather than just talk about) empowerment of people to suggest ideas, make decisions and take risks

Does Coca-Cola European Partners have a pension plan?

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.
