    Best reasons are: co-workers, tasks, leader(s). There are many way to make, control your own career way.

    It's difficult to go there. Tasks can be after one year so monotonic. There won't be any challenge.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola HBC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great business school, you have the chance to have projects with immediate result and big scale.
    People are great, very pragmatic, both people & result oriented, very dinamic and pro-active, customer-oriented (either internal or external)

    Cons

    It offers high opportunities for development, but it requires a lot of dedication from you. Prioritisation in employee's life, 10-11hour workday a minimum + you fit in best if you are young, with experience, preferably, with no personal obligations (family..) and to be willing to work for the pleasure of it, with lower than market compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never lose from sight employee engagement, it is very high right now and it is the source of positive work atmosphere & innovation & willingness to go that extra mile every time it is necessary (sometimes daily, for months!)
