    Pros

    Opportunity to learn and develop your skills & knowledge.
    Best in class with systems and hardware for employees.
    Iconic global brand and products.
    Always changing market conditions to keep you always challenged

    Cons

    There are alot to mention but the key factor is the business is on a decline due to market competitiveness and health awareness causing loss of sales volumes, also loss of recent key accounts such as Dominos & Woolies not ranging their Coke no sugar. All this has cascaded down to multiple effects - redundancies, low staff morale, staff abandoning ship, poor management, culture has become toxic with lack of transparency & unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Clarity on your overall house strategy and communicate effectively across the business units and they can support it.
    Treating your employees with respect and dignity

    Bit of a boys club. Union issues always a problem

    Its a great place to work MOST of the time. But you tolerate poor behavior of sales people, cos they are good at their job. Its the 21st century...time to move away from the boys club.
