    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company provides excellent training and opportunities for growth and career diversity. The company's mission and values are clear and easy to understand.

    Cons

    The company provides excellent opportunities but it is extremely political and bureaucratic. It takes experience to navigate some of these hurdles and sometimes distracts from the work at hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide entry level positions and real career tracks into different segments of the business.

    Pros

    Huge brand value, work-life balance, excellent compensation. In general, salaries are about 10% higher than what you can get in other companies.

    Cons

    Hire one of the best talents of the world but then not much recognition to novel ideation. Largely outsourced projects! From idea to execution, takes long time within the company. However if the idea comes from a supplier, it is executed asap!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and reward in-house talent.

    You can move around a lot - across multiple functional areas. Great compensation.

    Many layers and tons of hierarchy. Prohibits quick decisions and prevents the organization from being nimble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten the organization. Promote from within vs paying for talent.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay, the people are great, somewhat laid back culture, flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    The company seems to spend a lot of money on unnecessary services. Its difficult to meet with people face to face as the company is so large and some employees think they are too important to meet in person. Certain processes are not effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should humble your employees and focus on the more important issues.

    The culture at Corporate can be toxic. They work you to death and then don't reward you with promotions. Work/life balance is non-existent because of the old people in charge.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company as an intern (less than a year)

    I felt that I was paid well. I enjoyed communicating and working with my equals, communication could have been better with some superiors, but over it was good.

    Cons

    I wish I could have had more time off and it would have been easier, to plan. I wish that there would have been nicer offices.
