You can put Coca-Cola on your resume when you figure out that the culture and direction the company is heading is not conducive to a long term healthy career.
Get the experience and get out.Cons
Unions will be eliminated within a few years to make way for a centralized distribution model.
Drivers need to assess their future now. You are Coca Cola's most expensive liability; tractor, trailer, benefits, pay. You will be replaced by a third party courier as soon as the union is gone. You thought losing your 401K match was bad, just wait. They WILL eliminate unions.
Technology advancements will eliminate 1/3 of the Account Management staff.
Roles will continue to be eliminated resulting in additional work loads for those remaining.

Advice to people interested in working at Coca Cola.
Educate yourself on the beverage industry before applying. Beverage sales have been on the decline for 2+ years. Concumers are shifting away from Soft Drinks (compare to tobacco industry). Coca Cola does not have anything in their portfolio outside of beverages to make up this decline so they take from the employee.
Company cars replaced with poor car allowances, 401K match % removed or match is less, cost of benefits continue to increase, no perks, poor work/life balance, etc...
Advice to senior leadership.
Stop taking equity stakes in "promising" new beverage brands as your main revenue growth (I'm looking at you Glaceau). The Green Mountain Keuirg is another backwards thinking deal. Coca Cola Is starting to show its age.....Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
