    Pros

    Culture, people, competitive pay, environment. If you were working in the original HQ in Half Moon Bay, you felt like you were working with family.

    Cons

    The "big brother" feeling of having Coca-Cola around. Not given the opportunity to just be absorbed into the Coke system and just being let go.

    Advice to Management

    You had a great team that believed in the product in Half Moon Bay and instead of using that as leverage against your competitors, you decide to just lump it along with all of your other products. Now it's rare to see an Odwalla bottle around.

    Pros

    Odwalla Juice and their culture was a great company to work for!

    Cons

    I truly feel that they were mired down in the big corporate ownership of Coca Cola. They lost their identity and and brand focus.

    Advice to Management

    Hold true to yourself and your team. They need your strength!

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, work with little or no supervision, pleasant work environments, health food stores, hotels, universities, army bases, etc.

    Cons

    10 cent raises...yes, 10 cent raises! Rare to find any opportunity for promotion or growth.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who produce and have high sales. Add bigger bonuses and not only for once a year.

    Pros

    Casual friendly, collaborative environment, the culture is corporate yet somewhat bohemian at the same time. Nobody works long hours except for some execs and sales people.

    Cons

    None noticed firsthand, although since Coke is their parent company some large company bureaucracy is going to be around in some of their processes, but that's expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with the great culture and friendly environment!
