    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I like pretty much everything about working for Coca Cola.

    Cons

    Part Time positions are the only issues that really need to be addressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more full time positions. By providing so many part time positions you create a revolving door wasting opportunities to develop a base of employees that want to see your product succeed.

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

    Pros

    Coca Cola provides great health benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours, and comparatively low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership is very inconsistent. Also, they are not very skilled in evaluating their people. The direct supervisors who work day in and day out with their teams, has the least amount of say in the evaluations of their people. A very 'what have you done for me lately' company. One day your a rising star, and the next your one foot out the door.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexibility during day
    good benefits
    quality of product

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with what goes on in trade

    You will not see a manager in trade unless they are forced to

    Managers can not make a sales call unless a fellow manager is with them. They have a problem doing calls by themselves like others in the company do on a daily basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more within company. Working for someone with no experience is bad morale

    Pros

    Future employers will be impressed that you are were associated with Coca-Cola.

    Cons

    Poorest incentivized sales team in the united states. Telemarketers have more excitement about making sale then do Coke sales associates.
     I have been an employee for over ten years and have watched a once great company, that I was so proud to work for, become a revolving door circus, where the most touted individual is the one who can create the most mesmerizing spread sheet with Excel.
     Key account reps, regional Directors, V.P.s and so on have made life long careers out of creating slide shows.
     The amount of work done above the Account Manager level is negligible. Sam.es men and women are regularly forced to additional work for no pay.
     Benefeits at this company are on the decline as leadership tries to float the yachts of stock holders upon a sea of past employee gains.
     Employees are lied to and led astray in regard to bonus monies, goals to again said bonus, and time of payment of bonus.
     In the past two years CCR as, with out shame, stolen 2 quarterly bonuses from its sales force. Begging their forgiveness with excuses that range from "We had a system crash." to "We lost the numbers."
     Current Coke management are thieves of the highest order, and the lengths they go to to try and hide behind their name plated doors is clownish.
     This is a company that is ripe great pit falls in profit generation. The sales force here has a desire to see its company fail.
     This hog will be turned on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Beg the forgiveness of the families who's tables you have stolen food off of over the past three years. Have a heart and treat our people with dignity.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I really enjoy working here and the people are so friendly and nice. What I love most about this company is that they really have your back as an employee. I have worked for companies where you are always scared to make a mistake and you are scared you will lose your job. I have never felt that way at Coke. They use your mistakes as a way to teach you and make you better. The manangment really cares about their employees and they treat you with hight levels of respect. The BENEFITS ROCK!! You get 18 days paid vacation your first year w/ the option to purchase additional 'unpaid vacation" the 2nd year. I chose to purchase 2 extra days this year and have 4 weeks vacation my 2nd year at the company. The 401K is amazaing and so are all the health benefits. The hours are very flexible and they pay very well for gas mileage if you are out in the trade.

    Cons

    They are always changing and sometimes you feel like as soon as you get comfortable w/ one way of doing things then they change it. Also, you have a lot of different things you are graded on as a sales rep and it's hard to really be able achieve all the goals.. so you sometime you have to pick and choose what you are going to focus on at any given time. It's really not possible to achieve them all at the same time. Sometimes what upper managment decideds to focus on and push for doesn't really make sence at store level and that gets frusterating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the employess about what is and is now working out in the trade. I would advise that the case amounts and focus on Monthly Priorities be adjusted depending on the stores volume and demographic.

    Pros

    Medical, dental, three weeks vacation.
    One of the most recognized trademarks in the entire world.

    Cons

    Lack of managerial support, management says field policy supersedes corporate policy (field policy is whatever management and human resources chooses regardless of whether fair/correct or not) Management has no idea what they're doing, they manage through intimidation and fear backed up by human resources. G.P.,Tx. Location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Location is a runaway train at shareholders expense!
