    Pros

    Great perks and benefits as Associates and nice working environment. Good benefits and salaries.

    Cons

    Coke does a horrible job in promoting within so be prepared to fight for a what you want. If you play their game you'll do great and the money is worth selling your soul.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers aren't good people and need mandatory people skills training per quarter.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    use of your own ...the company can have you start your shift out of town without pay or miledge till you reach your destination on time for instance 6.am. also this company plays the whole blame game on each people taking pictures and emails where your just doing company standard policy merchandising.

    Advice to Management

    We work for the same company and we should work together instead of work faster and do more displays and let more product in the stores.

    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

    Opportunity for growth is there for those whom work hard and stand out. Flexible work from home schedule at least once per week based on manager's discretion. Working for one of the top 10 most recognizable brands in the world is great for a resume.

    Cons

    Compensation is low in comparison to the market. Easy to get lost in such a large company. Small fish in a big pond syndrome. Re-org's every 2-3 years, you can get shuffled or lose your job in a reorg, and many times the reason will not be based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Make more of an effort to keep your strong contributor's during reorganization efforts. Map people based on merit and not a roll of the dice.

    Pros

    Great salaries and other perks; working at Coca-Cola definitely carries a reputational benefit that will help you later in your career.

    Cons

    Coca-Cola is a company caught between history and reality. The Company has successfully grown sales for carbonated soft drinks for 128+ years, but there is huge pressure to keep that sustainable.

    Advice to Management

    Don't become a Kodak or a Blockbuster. Still beverages are the future. Don't ignore them.
