    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    You work independently, just do the job and it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    Cons

    It does feel like its very time consuming, must have a lot of free time. Must be willing to pick up after others trash. Sometimes you're randomly sent to other small counties,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Couldn't really complain, handled the grievance I filed very unprofessional.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Coke is that you are paid well according to your work and efforts. It has good benefits.

    Cons

    Constant re-organizations within the last 6 years negatively affect productivity, morale and loyalty to the Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair when giving feedback to associates and truly try to make them grow with positive constructive feedback. Overall: senior leadership needs to take ownership of their mistakes and stop doing re-organizations that affect employees and the bottom line.

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

    Pros

    Many people think designing for Coca-Cola means you have one brand and just one story to tell but this is so not true. This one company has so many brands built within it - Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, Fanta, Surge, etc and these brands are worlds apart from Coke Trademark - providing great exposure to a variety of projects. The brand and marketing team has brilliant people to work with, they truly hire the best of the best. The day-to-day can be a little hectic and flat-lined but there are so many opportunities to realize how great of a company it is and how lucky you are to be part of magic that is Coca-Cola.

    While as a contractor you do not get benefits or paid time off you are locked into 40 hours a week. This may sound bad but it makes for great work/life balance. Many designers on my team had their own design businesses on the side, had three or four other projects going, had time to break away from the busy work environment to achieve other goals.

    Cons

    As a contractor you get great exposure to many things, however there are no benefits, no paid time off, no overtime, can not work on weekends, you can work from home but all work from home must be done on your personal computer, there are no laptops for contractors. Becoming a full-time employee is difficult. Was hard to determine what I was truly working towards as a designer/individual. The company is also going through a major re-org. so things are a bit messy internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide the designers an environment to play, experiment, create outside of the computer and quick turn around times.

    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.

    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.
