    Pros

    Relationship driven culture. "Who you know/ who knows you" can get you places in your career. Senior leaders are approachable and there are many seasoned professionals to learn from.

    Cons

    Not a meritocracy. Hard work alone will get you nowhere. Very bureaucratic, and can be difficult do get things done at times.

    Pros

    Interned with Coca-Cola out of Cinci last summer for 10 weeks. Overall had a great time and worked with some really great people out in the field. The pay was great for an internship and Coca-Cola look great on a resume. Your first 2 weeks are very structured, with the first week being a lot of confernce calls with all of the interns across the country and different guest speakers who have made their way up the corporate ladder and started as interns themselves. After the first two weeks, you are going to be out in the field every single day shadowing different MDM's which is pretty easy, its just a lot of cooler stocking and misc. tasks that your MDM needs help with. I had an awesome DSM who gave me a good amount of responsibility so I would have a lot to talk about for my capstone presentation and he was really a great resource who made the experience an awesome one for me.

    Cons

    Be ready to do a lot of driving and to be sitting in a lot of other MDM's cars as they do their routes. Some days can be really boring just sitting the car and shadowing the MDM's. Very structured, which depending on what kind of person you are can be something you like or something that you do not. Not really anything bad to say about it to be honest, they treated me very well and I had a great experience.

    Advice to Management

    As far as the internship is concerned, I think allowing the interns to run their own route for a week or two at the end of the internship would be pretty awesome, another girl I interned with got to do that because someone in her zone switched jobs and they hadn't hired a replacement yet.

    Pros

    Conceptually great work. Execution of training sessions outstanding. Do MUCH more with significantly less EXPECTED.

    Cons

    Too much content jammed into routines. Still trying to balance quantity in terms of # of subjects versus quality and depth of the learning experiences. Environment is still evolving, currently losing what made it special (from an employee standpoint).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees on the Front Line. Balance the pursuit of efficiency at the cost of human capital.
