    Amazing brands! Wonderful people!

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Eagan, MN

    ProsThe company offers many opportunities for learning and development, and an environment that values a healthy balance between work and life.

    ConsWhile both formal and informal development opportunities are available, it can be difficult to find promotion opportunities outside of the main hubs of Atlanta, Dallas, and LA.

    Long term Contractors and no full time.

    Data Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsCoca Cola provides a major stepping stone for your Resume. Who doesn't recognize the most recognizable brand in the world. The provide frequent events during the weeks for workers to enjoy and the Corporate is a beautiful place to work.

    ConsUnfortunately coke is now mostly hiring contractors to fill positions that are needed at the time. In certain departments, even with significant contributions employment is unlikely. Also Coke is becoming so large and department separation is becoming problem as most departments are only looking out for their side of the processes and will turn the other cheek at issues that may be found in the system that don't effect them (as was my experience).

    Contractors are worked constantly with no Holidays or Vacations or even sick days making it very hard to justify the pay at times. Advancement is also very competitive and limited if at all in most cases.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDefine a career development plan for contracting employees who may be valuable to your company in the future. Give contractors some standard benefits and recognize workers for finding bugs that can be fixed or areas that can be optimized.

    Structure of company is odd and not effective. Pay rates are all over the place.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe only good thing is getting 3 weeks paid vacation the first year - if you start early enough in the year.

    ConsLow pay for a lot of responsibility. Lack of opportunity to step up the ladder. Pay rates are all over the place without rhyme or reason. Nepotism. Does not matter if you work your tail off or slack off, you are still going to get a teeny tiny annual raise: not rewarded for hard work (salary raise).

    Account Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsJob Security was the greatest pro. The mid level management always talk about how you will never need to work anywhere else.

    ConsThe hours can become grueling during contract time and I constantly felt underpaid for the amount of work and also compared to the same type of role in other industries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the people become outliers with new regulations on promotions in regards with what type of education someone has.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
