great maternity policy, salary and share plan
Too many managers who do not have a clue what they ought to be doing. Bullying is an accepted style of management and people who are there are too scare to raise their concerns. HR turn a blind eye and would only listen to managers' side (dangers of a one sided story). Too many office romance (manager and direct reports etc), it is unbelievable and can be very unprofessional when the relationship hits the rocks.3

For a start, although it was mostly online, the onboarding process was great. Each intern was assigned a mentor for the entire 9-month program and there were also regular meetings with the manager and managing director of your team. It really depends in which team you end up but I enjoyed working with my colleagues in Financial reporting. Everyone was very helpful and open to answering all sorts of questions.
Honestly, I cannot think of any downsides.

Great company to have on cv Some great people to work with (not many) Good discounts Free drinks while at work Can do online shopping instead of work (managers do)
Bullying atmosphere Threatens staff rather than gives rewards No employee engagement No concern or focus on high staff turnaround I was permanent but saw many agency and contracted staff being treated poorly and unfairly Low pay Antisocial hours Racism from Team Leader 'Face fits' environment 'Us and them' attitude between teams in office and field Some call centre staff do no work other than keep team amused. Manager is happy with this Managers takeManagers takeManagers take credit for their teams successes Managers clearly don't get on and use staff in arguments Too many confidential subjects discussed by managers in smoking shelter or canteen Poor customer service given to equipment customers Senior Managers sleeping around No collaboration Team Leaders have regular meetings but never update teams Figures altered to look better than they are Poor communication Very low staff morale Support appeared to be given but any progression always stopped with whispered conversations between management2

Some great people and managers Good pastoral care
Opportunities limited by location and depending on management Senior managers like to micro manage Certain types of people get promoted above others because of how they look/talk/ etc1

There are so many pro's: good pension, company share scheme, and loads of others. The pro I want to focus on is also a negative: CCEP gives freedom and autonomy to managers to manage their teams as they see fit.
Because of the autonomy CCEP gives to their managers, your way of working will greatly depend on your manager. Example if your manager is someone that wants to be in the office all the time and likes the office environment, you will probably be in the office more often than not. If your manager is someone that doesn't care as much then you're lucky you can be in the office whenever it suits you and not whenever it suits your manager. (even though you're in the same function - if your direct manager likes being in the office your presence in the office will be vastly greater than your larger team) Compensation lacks a bit. Especially with the way inflation is going.

Free product allocation was nice but limited choice
• Lots of micromanaging • Some higher level managers have been there too long and really need to move on • Australian CEO wants everyone back in an office full time regardless of the fact that the company still performed well when people were WFH. Very old school in his thought process • For a billion dollar company, salary is terrible for workload • No set onboarding process so it changes from department • Cannot easily find information for internal procedures • There’s too many ways of completing a task and no single staff member can explain how it needs to be done • All online training is still in the Coca Cola Amatil format even after the acquisition and VERY outdated • Understaffed with a MASSIVE gap between hiring people. Some roles sit for up to 3 months before the hiring process starts and the responsibilities of that role gets pushed onto someone who already has too much to do • Too much politics2

Some managers good and supportive and help you develop skills
You need to fit a box to get a promotion and even if you are the top seller and hit all your targets you still get put into a pot of who gets a pay rise as it’s not done on merit.1
