    Pros

    Great People, Great place to build experience

    Cons

    Horrible benefits, salary and leadership double standards

    Advice to Management

    Care for your people and show it, value can be measured by sacrifice so give tangibly to the employees as they are giving their all for you and the company but seems like a one way street

    Pros

    Cott has a strong vision for its future. This involves lots of changes to the way they do business.

    Cons

    Business is growing, however the current workforce isn't growing to accommodate the incredible increase in workload. The current workforce also isn't being compensated to align with the increase in responsibilities or to remain or competitive with similar positions at other companies. Without changes, turnover is high and will continue to increase.

    Advice to Management

    Show your appreciation for the work that your current work force is doing. The company is turning around and should compensate its employees with better pay and better benefits.

    Pros

    None that I can think of anymore - USED to be a good company to work at before Cott came in.

    Cons

    Disorganized - racist - backstabbing - Union does nothing except collect your dues.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better management team - listen to the good employees & don't favor the slackers.

    Pros

    Good company - nice people who care about each other. Not enough people and generally work you to death. Recommend if you are out of work.

    Cons

    Always cutting back and trying to avoid financial challenges. Eliminated 401K match and constantly cutting benefits. No pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management not really interested in people. Its all about their bonus. HR is not effective.

    Pros

    All the products are free for associates.
    Sunny Tampa.
    That's all.

    Cons

    Full of consultants who think they own the company. IT people with high ego, lack of organization and very uncomfortable work spaces.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better spaces for your employees and get rid of those big headed consultants
