    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company (KO) encourages independent thinking. Free drink to sample. Deli food in vending machine is one of the best. The marginal benefit of weekend hours or overtime could be wonderful for some. PPE expense like steel toe shoe are reimbursable for $50. Very good group benefits, especially dental if you have small children.

    Cons

    Underemployed in some areas, pay is not as high as other beverage company, summer weekend are hectic. Not your average Joe kind of employer if you want advancement. You have to have courage, brain, and a strong ethics to be with Coke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You got to remember the company spent a lot of money on you and thus depended on you to make (a lot of) money. It is a matching concept.

    Pros

    Great pay and bonuses. Good team spirit. Excellent training and retraining when needed. Office workers are respectful of others (no back stabbing). Bonuses are within everyone's reach. Excellent benefits for returning to college as a degree seeking student.

    Cons

    Time off policies can be challenging to navigate. They now allow two to three unexcused sick absences per rolling twelve months. Previous to this, you had to notify the company three days prior to any absence.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work in a permanent position. If you get a job, consider you have it for life - exclusions will be a hard hit in the financial front. Being one of the fortune "100" companies, brighter of the brightest minds get employed leading to a great work culture. Company offers very good benefits.

    Cons

    DO NOT work there in a contract position. You always be reminded that you are just a contract employee. The company still follows old school methods. Very hard to move up the ladder.

    Pros

    People are knowledgeable and nice. Company benefits are awesome. Flexibility can't be beat. Lots of opportunities for work life balance. Brand loyalty is easy due to variety and availability. Great Beverages.

    Cons

    Management at the highest levels seem confused and decisions are haphazard. Misdirection causes employees to be unhappy. Too much change, too many layoffs, no explanation. Company 20/20 vision is blurry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing so much. Look at the trends. Forecast better. Think of investors less and consumers more.
