Pros

Cons

* 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 Management

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.

    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

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


  2. "Enjoyable if you work hard"
