    Negatively Interesting can plant

    Production Supervisor (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsIts an interesting place to work, with lots of self learning opportunities! Quite an exhaustive workload that will help u learn if you are new to the beverage industry as the management will hold you responsible for anything and everything.

    ConsPlant management impedes growth, so if its your plan to grow within the company the right way, this is not a good plant for you to start as the plant mgr would not let you go outside the plant to another plant for a new position or transfer because he does not want any outside knowledge of how the plant is ran. He does not like to be challenged, and if you do that personally even if he concedes that you are right you would be discouraged with your end of year review as it permits subjective conclusion promoted by coca-cola as opposed to subjective values based on your work output. In general the slogan is if you disagree with anything even at the best interest of consumer or product quality, you are definitely going on a unsubstantiated PIP and HR will not do anything about it. This in-turn increase a high turnover costing the company a fortune on retraining and retaining skills to improve output. But not sure if this is Coca-cola's priority as the consumers already helped made the brand well known. if Pepsi was really helping their situation with avoiding promotion errors Coca-cola would have been super threatened!

    Advice to Senior ManagementA 4 years rotation of plant management would help sustain top management plan to improve manufacturing culture. This will also help retain good hands as the metrics put in place to ensure hiring the right skill-set should be based on experience and education, not either or.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Company - but beware

    Finance Manager (Current Employee) Columbia, MD

    ProsA great place to get experience. Very fast paced. CCE is a good place to get entry level experience. Get in and learn as much as you can. The experience can be applied to many other companies and Coca-cola looks great on your resume.

    ConsLong hours. It is hard to find time to take vacation. This leads to burn out. Pay levels are low compared to other companies. It feels as if management doesn't care. They just churn through people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to have better employee relations. They need to know that it is the employees that make the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
