    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like having the freedom and autonomy to independently plan my days.

    Cons

    Too many unrealistic goals and fake people. Brown nosers and liars will go far.

    Advice to Management

    Set attainable goals and quit forcing additional work on your employees without additional compensation. Wonder why turnover is always an opportunity for improvement? That's why. You'll lose all the good ones eventually.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job itself was great and the benefits and 401k we're really good. There was a decent amount of flexibility as long as you manage your time wisely.

    Cons

    They have favorites and there are many clicks. The company itself is ran poorly. Everybody has so much to do that counteracts with what each other is doing and nobody works as a team. They change bonus structure multiple times a year so you bonus as a whole and not on your own achievements. They are never fully staffed. They have few dedicated and hard workers because all employees get burnt out and setup caring.

    Advice to Management

    You are running the company to the ground. The frontline employees are just as important as anyone else. They are the ones that sale your products and give consumers the first impression. If they aren't motivated and working as a team it's going to cost you more money in the long run. Hire people fit for the job not based on ethnicity or sex to hit you're quota.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits. insurance, 401k, Dental and eyes

    Cons

    Management helps out only the employees they like. A lot of employees that work there can barely speak English where you can even understand them. You have employees that can not perform their job duties. Such as lift the units. But it is a job requirement. Since their buddies with management they get over.

    Advice to Management

    Your there to do a job. If you have a employee that can not do the job or makes mistakes after doing installs for over 10 years. Believe me there is a problem and it is not the employee.

    Pros

    There is no pros with this Employer ...people with seniority are bullies they will make you look bad if they don't like you.

    Cons

    Maybe salary and we really earn every dollar on day to day basis....

    Advice to Management

    Please walk the walk and talk the talk....it's a shame that you have employee with few years of seniority to lied to you and no one listen new comers.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company as a contractor

    Pros

    Great brand, the world knows Coca-Cola.

    Cons

    Tied to a phone all day dealing with angry consumers. Upper management unavailable and middle managerment have no authority to make decisions needed on the floor. Horrible hours, horrible pay. Non-transparent company. Always being "watched", monitored and graded.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was okay to start, but not for one merchandiser doing the work of 3 people and traveling all of the time.

    Cons

    Management has NO CLUE how poorly they treat their LOYAL employees, as long as they get their paycheck, they don't care about the UNREASONABLE "crap" that they dump on the good working, loyal employees. Too bad that they don't have to do what they DEMAND us to do!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, treat your good employees well and you might find that they actually stay with Coca Cola. You can't expect some of your employees to work 10+ days in a row & travel 500 miles a week to CONSTANTLY fix your internal problems, without getting a lot of backlash from the ABUSED employees. Like(don't love it anymore) my job but it's not worth being abused DAILY by your management that can't hire & keep part-time people because of your screwed up ideas and all of the travel. Wasn't hired to put on 500 miles a week. Keep your promises to your good employees or you will have NONE!! Word of mouth travels well in a rural area.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is no lack of work, from the time you clock in you are given tasks to complete throughout the work shift. You can work independently or as a team. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Everyone that works here has a don't care attitude, especially the management. This reflects on the workers themselves, who work to create overtime. The company is unorganized and there is little rook for growth. This is almost a hostile work environment. You also are forced into a Union work place, which creates a lazy and uncaring work place.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your workers and the work that is getting done. Don't expect that people are ready to work for a boss who isn't ready to work. Hire management who have done the job of the employees, and someone who can boost morale and create an efficient and dynamic work environment.

    Pros

    Pay was good, very good benefits (expensive though) and not much else really.

    Cons

    Management picks and chooses who to enforce company policies on. No work/life balance whatsoever, never know when you'll be off. Impossible to request time off or call in for emergencies. Hard work load, very physically demanding.
