    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's neat to say you work for Coca-Cola.
    Good vacation time to start.

    Cons

    Highly Disorganized - the right hand never knows what the left hand is doing.
    Very Cheap - they may as well use the same technology they used 125 years ago when the company was founded.
    NO work/life balance - the requirement is a MINIMUM is 50 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The worst manager I have ever had - when the company merged they brought all the sales people over into supply chain positions, my manager couldn't tell you one thing about my job. Maybe it helps that he is a pathological liar.

    Pros

    The pay is okay for the position.

    Current Employee - Market Development Manager in Los Angeles, CA
    Current Employee - Market Development Manager in Los Angeles, CA

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

    Pros

    You get a pay check
    You have the benefits of working for a large corporation
    You can say you work for Coke
    Working in the field has its advantages

    Cons

    You are managed by fear
    Sit and wait in line for years and years to MAYBE be promoted to a lame middle manager job
    Higher educated not valued
    Nepotism rampant
    Countless impossible "goals" and you will constantly be slapped on the wrist and eventually written up for not achieving everything all the time
    We are hired because we have personality and can speak, but consider your voice as good as silenced when it comes to company communication
    Pay is barely enough to pay the bills in a major city

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you would sit down and have honest conversation with the people who actually operate the business (sales people/drivers) then it will be obvious how improvements can be made. 90% of CCR management is old blood carrying on via nepotism and I would be shocked if they actually did anything real to help the company and its people.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Simple office work, free tickets to various events, building up your experience, and friendly staff

    Cons

    If you're a contract worker make sure that you have letters of recommendations from the manager and/or director before your position is about to be terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a good contract worker, let he or she try for a permanent position before persuading to encouraging external applicants.
