    Fortune 500 Best

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsConsumer satisfaction of its products and its service to the community. Employee benefits are calculated to be competitive and serve their employees long term.

    ConsInternal politics as experienced by large Fortune 500 companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCoca-Cola Corporate....Go back to the Old Coke ways....Integrate today's technology with the old face to face way of doing business. On the Street! You can't let the Bottler do it their Way...sometimes.

    Smart People. Great Experience

    Communications (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsI always worked with smart people who for the most part were passionate about their job. Great place to learn branding and marketing, even if you are not in that primary role. Working at the AOC, there was always an educational or entertaining event. Great time off benefits, onsite gym and onsite medical.

    ConsIt was hard to advance your career due to the flat organizational structures. There is definitely a lot of politics, especially by people who were trying to continually prove their worth in order to keep their jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company will is at risk for change fatigue. Let people keep their jobs for a while.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company!

    Market Development Manager (Current Employee) Lexington-Fayette, KY

    ProsNo micro-management, create your own schedule, supportive management, lots of room for advancement and career development under the right manager, and the best part of all... no one ever leaves Coca-Cola for the most part. That says a lot about a company! There's not much competition with Coca-Cola other than Pepsi and in the sales field you either share the space or the customer wants one or the other... It's a no brainer.

    ConsHands on learning style with a feel your way through as you go kind of setting when it comes to sales.

    Technician (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGood Salary and benefits. Working for the #1 brand name in the world. You get a great sense of pride working for such a great company. Great opportunity for advancement.
