    Cons

    DRIVING. mileage sucks. when you start with the company you at the bottom of list. Some time ill drive 45 to even a hour to my first store. It does get annoying cause sometimes ill be stuck in traffic and ill won't get home till 2 hours after i clocked out.

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

    Pros

    Many improvements made during the last decade to bring the company up to speed with other major competitors.
    Numerous opportunities available to most associates as long as they were willing to relocate, however, relocation/
    mobility packages were rarely offered. Great & competitive benefits packages.

    Cons

    A lot of antiquated thinking by senior management, which made progress a slow and painful process. Leadership
    had difficulty holding direct reports accountable and struggled with coaching through difficult situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic expectations and communicate them to your teams.
    Well developed Onboarding plans are key to long term employee engagement.

    Pros

    Great benefits, in house training and compensation.

    Cons

    The continuous re-organizations always keep you guessing if you will have a job. Company is outsourcing everything in the IT arena.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing IT functions hurts the business. Is anybody concerned and or listening?
