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

    Pros

    It looks great on your resume to work for such a well-known brand.

    Cons

    Be wary if you are in IT. The company is very disorganized with their direction and has multiple lay-offs each year. The "re-orgs" are not organized - often throwing those remaining into newly formed groups. Don't expect to stay with this company long-term. There is no work life balance for those remaining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a business plan that allows you to move forward without reorganizing every few years. The company will not continue to prosper if it keeps changing direction as soon as a new way is implemented. It's obvious that these lay-offs are due to the company's inability to reach their 20/20 goals through sales.

    Former Employee - Supply Chain Co-Op in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent team, very friendly and eager to help, very interesting problems, understanding of Excel and SQL and big data manipulation, many activities organized at the Atlanta headquarters for employees

    Cons

    At times disorganized and too large to understand all aspects of supply chain. Not many cons, mostly a great place to work and to start a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More organized and defined responsibilities for interns and Co-ops. More networking opportunities beyond one's own division and team. Training programs that help understand excel, sql, six sigma, etc.

    Pros

    The pay was pretty good, I got to go places and meet people at many different stores. The benefits were good too

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of promises is given for future carrier due to the size of the Company and operating in over 200 countries globally

    Cons

    But less of engagement to fulfill all the promises and high risk for family people to work in this Company, to day in 2015 there will be 2000 people laid off (sacked) interesting future!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make less commitment to all the you people which will believe your statement and promises, as people need to able to relay on income for their families.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    The job was pretty easy and laid back. Vacation time given was GREAT!

    Cons

    Where do I start...

    There was no work life balance.
    Job consisted of far too many administrative duties.
    The job was not challenging. A middle school student could succeed in this role.
    Upper management sets unrealistic goals.
    Upper management needs to be replaced or trained. Very unhelpful.
    Upper management used fear tactics to motivate which only decreased employee moral.
    Low pay for hours worked. Aim high for larger salary and negotiate if needed. They will try to pay you pennies if you accept.
    Bonus are hard to obtain due to unrealistic goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET TRAINING IMMEDIATELY SO THAT YOU CAN BE A BETTER LEADER FOR YOUR TEAM.
