Pros

* Great training and development progam
* Structured policies and procedures make it easy to manage people
* Good communication from Senior Management
* Company is expanding into new areas (e.g. alcohol) and identifying profitable business ventures

Cons

* Extremely political environment
* Minimal communication between departments
* Often the "Coke Way" is considered the only way - not really open to new ideas from employees
* Slow promotion often you need to work across a number of different areas before you will receive a promotion (5-7 years)
* Pay is not competitive
* Minimal work/life balance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a consultative culture where ideas are shared and nourished across teams. Review work/life policies particularly for returning mothers - be more open to part time and job share in senior positions.

    Overall responsible for every aspect of a given business unit and high profile key accounts

    Current Employee - State Business Manager  in  North Sydney (Australia)
    Current Employee - State Business Manager in North Sydney (Australia)

    Pros

    An influential business that backs its' people and is constantly seeking to improve even the most minute detail of operations. Slow to move, but with incredible inertia was pursuing a chosen path

    Cons

    Slow to respond due to size, and the Coke way is often the only way. The benefits of size can also be the greatest hinderance due to tyranny of distance and communication lags

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on incentivising and growing internal talent. This is the key to holding onto the brightest performers. Otherwise brain drain is a distinct possibility

    A lot is asked with very little offered in return.

    Pros

    Peers are generally supportive and dedicated to helping each other and also the location of the Head Office building is convenient to everything. Also the prestige of a well-known company like Coca-Cola Amatil looks good as part of a career history.

    Cons

    A lot is expected of the employee with very little offered in return. Promises of better conditions are frequently made without any kind of followup. Surveys to gauge employee engagement are taken at a mind-numbing frequency without any action taken based on the results.

    The management style is very unforgiving and is accompanied with a constant state of 'restructure' making any coherent direction almost non-existent. Constant Budget cuts leads to bitter inter-department rivalry. Employee morale is almost permanently low leading to a grey to dark working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management within CCA seems to be engaged in an exercise to 'rule with an iron fist' seemingly forgetting that individuals can leave just as easily as they came. Vital skills and talents are walking out the door while a strange practice in bemused head-scratching is being carried out by management. Working for a highly - recognizable brand isnt its own reward. Listen to your people. If something is wrong, do more than engage in lip-service to fix it.
