    Pros

    There is something new every day! In industry, there is no more respected company and everyone will take your call and is excited to be a partner. And Free Beverages throughout the day!

    Cons

    Very little true process, which makes it difficult to get projects through to market.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for a Google-like flexibility in developing specialized areas of expertise.

    Pros

    It's a recognized brand all over the world, great management team that has innovative ideas for our Talent Acquisition team. No micro-management. Work/life balance is very important to leadership team. TA Manager and Supervisor are bringing great ideas and changes to our team. In the past 6 months since new management came onboard, things have changed for the better. It's almost like a "family" atmosphere.

    Cons

    Wish they gave you more vacation time off.. only 2 weeks (for less than five years). Most companies I have worked for, give you 3 to start. Sometimes, you do have to put in long hours during the summer but it's the nature of the business.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for CCE is the pay is good, the hours aren't crazy, and there are many opportunites to grow within the company. Many people who complain about the company don't know what they are talking about. NY is the hardest market and for people to complain in less hectic market units it isnt a fair comparison. Things in the Northeast are run tight and the management works well with other staff. CCE is a good job if you work hard and make your presence/name known to all management,

    Cons

    There Are No Downsides Working At Coca Cola Enterprises

    Advice to Management

    I think Senior Management Could Develop A More Organized Trimester Bonus Structure

    Pros

    If you work hard you will be rewarded. From the merchandising position you can one of two areas. Into sales or driving + warehouse. The job has a lot of perks for not having to have a college degree and there are many ways to move up.

    Cons

    There can be very long days along with the physical rigors of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Be supportive and promote from within when the candidate shows a possibility for success.

    Pros

    Welcoming and respective atmosphere in engineering. A lot of innovation is occurring at Coke. A lot of talent and diversity is seen in the engineering group. The people working in the group are very helpful and knowledgeable. There is a sense of camaraderie among the engineering group that makes it stand out. And of course, free drinks.

    Cons

    Amount of time put in, but can change work week accordingly

    Advice to Management

    It seems that the deadlines set by marketing interrupt the flow in the engineering group

    Pros

    Coca Cola is an incredibly supportive company and a great place to work. Everyone I met there was kind and helpful, and many opportunities existed for employees to have a fun day at work (promotional activities, free concerts, celebrity appearances). Offices are wonderful and free coke is everywhere!

    Cons

    Coca Cola does not have a very large young workforce---most people are over 30. Also, the large company aspect makes it difficult to move up at times.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise upper management to focus more on looking at their in-house resources and establish more measures for promotion through and throughout the department.

    Pros

    The Company is an awesome place to work. Most of the employees are willing to help you and take pride in their work. If you want to take on challenging assignments, depending on the lawyers you support, the opportunities are there.

    Cons

    There aren't any promotion opportunities for paralegals. In order to be promoted you have to want to give up your profession in law and start over on the business side or leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work overall. Sr. Mgmt in Legal division should consider promotion opportunities for paralegals.

    Pros

    The hours are a bit early if you're full time and set for the weekend. Pay is good. I'm a weekender and there were 105 applications when I hired on. Everyone wants to work here because of the good pay and relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Might be a bit too lax in regulations.

    Advice to Management

    Institute Personal Management Interviews.

    Pros

    Very competitive wages and benefits package for similar careers. Great communication within all parts of the company. Good schedules. Lot's of vacation days!

    Cons

    I have found it difficult to advance within the company. There are a lot of overqualified persons so competition is very tough. The sales centers seem to hire within rather than transferring from a different area of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunity for advancement/challenges. Incentive pay is great, but maybe offering more responsibility as well.

    Pros

    Brand recognition, loyalty, committment to excellence, global strength is unparalleled anywhere else, breadth of portfolio, interest by people outside of Coke.

    Cons

    Work life balance is sometimes questionable. Management sometimes disconnected wth subbordinates, needs to work more on being rewards based on results driven culture. Too old school culturely speaking.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employees in order for them to develop; have more opportuities abroad for employees that are lower than group or division presidents. There is a lot of untapped talent - you just need to look for it and help this talent develop.
