    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay and bonuses. Good team spirit. Excellent training and retraining when needed. Office workers are respectful of others (no back stabbing). Bonuses are within everyone's reach. Excellent benefits for returning to college as a degree seeking student.

    Cons

    Time off policies can be challenging to navigate. They now allow two to three unexcused sick absences per rolling twelve months. Previous to this, you had to notify the company three days prior to any absence.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great relationships and camaraderie, most recognizable brand in the world helps get you into potential new accounts, but customers will have expectations because it is such a large and well known company,

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, sometimes company loses sight of what is most important and why we are in business - the customer. It is a major challenge to sell any product or promotion when the customer or potential customer you are selling has issues with your service...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Service needs to be first and foremost!

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    An historic environment to work in and a great campus culture like experience. Located in the heart of Atlanta, it also provides easy access to downtown activities.

    Cons

    Located in the heart of Atlanta, so if you live in the suburbs the commute is difficult. Also, the highly professional environment was demanding, especially for a young adult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you've just stepped in from the outside and think you can do it all better than those that have been there for years, think again. It may have been tried and tested and failed for good reason.
