    I have been working at Britvic Soft Drinks full-time

    Pros

    Strong company core values and a clear vision on where they want to go. Britvic has competitive wages, great insurance plan and fantastic work/life balance.

    Cons

    I'd have to stretch to find many cons about Britvic. The company does a great job of rewarding the employees that go above and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Continue to stay ahead of the curve to keep our competition on their feet.

    Pros

    Britvic North America is a great place to work. People are empowered, motivated and see the bigger impact their everyday actions have. The business has a strong relationship with Pepsico which works well for the distribution scale of Britvic brands in the USA. Team culture is very strong and very close to the extent that the only people that have departed this organisation are those that the business has chosen to exit NOT people leaving of their own free will. We are all proud of this retention rate. I cannot speak highly enough of this business here in the states which compares very well to other organisations i have worked in.

    Cons

    The implementation of European 'Group' policies doesnt always work effectively for a small team in a large distant country but a lot of work has been ongoing here to make this better and its starting to turn.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus and investment levels moving forward, we are making great inroads into the kids beverage market with Fruit Shoot which is already #2 kids single serve product in the market.

    Pros

    Great company to work for with great benefis! With the continued growth in the US market, Personal/Profesional growtth opportunities are available for all employees that are committed and willing to apply yourself.

    Cons

    I would say that the only con working with Britvic is that sometimes you have heavy travel time but as long as you manage correctly you can maintain a work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide communications of current and future US market strategies. Also would suggest that management continue to hava open and candid conversations/feedback sessions in order to drive positive change.
