    Pros

    Working at Coca-Cola provides a lot of great opportunity. Employees are encouraged to continue to learn new skills and develop themselves. The company also has very good benefits.

    Cons

    Large Matrix organization that does not leverage those with legacy knowledge. Reorganizations occur every 2-3 years which puts all roles at risk.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend that if an individual is very good in a functional area and chooses to remain in that function, that this is an acceptable career path. Leverage those individuals.

    Pros

    This is one of the USA most favorite and well known brands through out the world for a good reason. It treats its employees with genuine respect, the pay could always be better but when is there ever enough money in today's economy? benefits are competitive and work life balance is a serious concern, for what I do by comparison to other companies I feel I am apart of something big and am treated as such.

    Cons

    Unless you have a Degree your opportunities for growth will be limited in spite of your experience and ability to do the rolls of those who have expanded their education. but that can be resolved by taking advantage of their paid college tuition reimbursement program. We did recently have our annual gain sharing suspended do to slow sales but hope this will be reinstated once profits rebound.

    Advice to Management

    Remember Gain sharing was a great driver for performance and employee ownership of brand and personal and team performance and we seen it as a positive response to our hard work and dedication.

    Pros

    Flexible Hours and Work Schedule. Plenty of travel, getting to see new things, and meeting plenty of interesting people. Fun work environment. Work varies, nothing is tedious.

    Cons

    Company Inspired Locale and Uniforms are a must. No Pepsi related products or decals are permitted on Company grounds, vehicles, or to be consumed during working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Temp to hire contracts should be available with a 90 day option. Clock-in/out management should be available to contract employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks, flexible, company continuously improves their processes.

    Cons

    Unless you are in an upper management position the pay tends to be lower then the norm. Most people no matter the position take on much more responsibilities then initial job description and will not see a pay increase. However, the benefits are great, additional perks, discounts, tuition reimbursements, etc. help tremendously.

    Advice to Management

    Many of the areas such as Sales, Delivery and Merchandising work in silos. Understanding all areas of the business, what each department does along with how the departments effect one other would help tremendously. Communication between the departments are key. Managers ensuring this communication and collaboration would eliminate/avoid many minor issues.
