Does Coca-Cola European Partners have an on site gym?

Pros

Free company drink, gym and parking

Cons

Old style like the 80s. They can tell you are working for Real Madrid and you need to say thank you for that when the style is still blocked in the old way when they just ask you since the first day without explanation or any knowledge. The treatment that managers gives to their employees needs to improve a lot and do not get confuse THIS IS NOT COCA COLA, is another consultancy more...

Advice to Management

IT has been changed in the last year and they should take a look in the current way of working. People always expect that the managers knows a little bit about the team or technology they are managing...

What is a typical working day like at Coca-Cola European Partners?

Pros

Progression opportunities are great as well as the salary once you have been verified by another member of staff and are no longer a trainee which takes being trained on at least two different machines and learning a third at which point you become entitled to the higher wage of £44,000 per year

Cons

Shift pattern takes a lot of getting used to an the twelve hour shifts changing between days and nights can be hard at times and lastly there's no holiday days to book off as they are built into the shift pattern

Advice to Management

The only thing I can think to reccomend to management would be better training options as I personally would benefit from a wider training option to be capable of doing more and I've met quite a few others who have been there a very long time who still agree and have stressed to me about not being given enough opportunities to train on newer or different machines

What are meetings like at Coca-Cola European Partners?

Pros

Free drinks but too much waste of plastic Salary is ok compared to what you can have anywhere else Some flexibility depending on your manager Nice offices

Cons

No training plans. It is very difficult to get a useful course. Very poor management with a very old mindset. There are many people who have only worked at this company for over 20 years and their view is very narrow. Some bossy managers who never say please or thank you. They don't value you. Low skills at the management level. No collaboration between teams. HR department is useless. They are never able to help you. Compensation is quite different depending on where you are based. Too many meetings culture and no real work. No real Digital Transformation. The projects last for years and you get stuck without progressing. Some people working here think this is The Coca-Cola Company but it is just a bottler.

Advice to Management

There are too many Directors and Associate Directors but few people that actually can put themselves hands-on and have real knowledge about technology. Fire those who create trouble and have been for 20 years at the company by benefiting from others' work and manage people so badly because they don't understand the new generations and the new values.

Too many meetings culture and no real work.
