    Account Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsJob Security was the greatest pro. The mid level management always talk about how you will never need to work anywhere else.

    ConsThe hours can become grueling during contract time and I constantly felt underpaid for the amount of work and also compared to the same type of role in other industries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the people become outliers with new regulations on promotions in regards with what type of education someone has.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Long term Contractors and no full time.

    Data Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsCoca Cola provides a major stepping stone for your Resume. Who doesn't recognize the most recognizable brand in the world. The provide frequent events during the weeks for workers to enjoy and the Corporate is a beautiful place to work.

    ConsUnfortunately coke is now mostly hiring contractors to fill positions that are needed at the time. In certain departments, even with significant contributions employment is unlikely. Also Coke is becoming so large and department separation is becoming problem as most departments are only looking out for their side of the processes and will turn the other cheek at issues that may be found in the system that don't effect them (as was my experience).

    Contractors are worked constantly with no Holidays or Vacations or even sick days making it very hard to justify the pay at times. Advancement is also very competitive and limited if at all in most cases.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDefine a career development plan for contracting employees who may be valuable to your company in the future. Give contractors some standard benefits and recognize workers for finding bugs that can be fixed or areas that can be optimized.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for but still room to be great

    Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsGreat benefits(i.e. medical, dental, life insurance, tuition reimbursement and etc), dress casual to work, good managers

    ConsPay should be better since we place orders for their customers all over the country. Room for growth is not always the case for some departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive a RAISE!! It's stressful job so if we really contribute that much to the business why not make us happy so we could continue to make the customers happy.
    Interview method SUCKS!!
    Promotion; Instead of the S.T.A.R method, how about we pick the person with the better, character personality and passion and stop nitpicking on who stuck to the S.TA.R method during the interview or who answered the questions better

    Good Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent Benefits. Great starting point for young people w/o a degree.

    ConsAbove the signature statement of "Putting People First", there is an underling culture of Regional Managers dictating they're own agenda.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't move on rumors.....get out in the trade and see for yourself

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsGreat company, with great benefits.

    High volume Call center. Very demanding.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsMight be a possible way to securing a permanent position but very competitive and demanding.

    ConsTemp workers were rarely granted time off and had to work most holidays and times when other permanent employees were off with little or no added compensation.

    Not what it used to be. Don't expect a lifetime career anymore.

    Business Systems Analyst II (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsFairly competitive compensation.
    Opportunity exists still to learn SAP on the job.

    ConsNot a long term career choice anymore.
    Hiring off-shore contractors more often now than before.
    Replacing long-term employees in IT with contractors.
    Company President is taking them down the wrong path.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop removing Americans from this American institution. Re-think the massive contractors instead of Full-time employee shift. You're losing respect in the industry for this.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
