    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coke has good bay and benefits. We get three weeks vacation from the go. Some jobs have teleworking capabilities. So many people work from home. Employee pride. It's great to say you work for Coke.

    Cons

    Management is not focused on the customers as they should be. Customer service lacks. Everyone is trying to just meet numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the line workers.. consider customer service over profit

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well funded company that can provide the resources to succeed... if you know how to ask.
    Brand has history and a well defined brand marketing voice.
    Excellent company to have on a resume.
    Many opportunities to network and speak at conferences.
    Compensation is competitive at the mid to senior levels.

    Cons

    IT policy and process stuck in the 90s.
    Everyone is a project manager. All the real work is contracted out. This setup leads to a knowledge vacuum.
    Federated business model leads to confusion among brand leads. Markets and Global teams fight over brand ownership.
    Scalability is always a problem when dealing with 200+ brands sold in 200+ markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more work in house. It will cost much less and Coca-Cola will retain any knowledge gained in the project lifecycle.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working with a wide variety of local store employees was a very positive experience. Hourly pay and mileage were competitive.

    Cons

    Pressure for perfection very high. Co-workers during the week did not pull their weight and performance reviews seemed to constantly fall on weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be understanding of physical limitations of the job and provide more resources and benefits to part time help.

    the most challenging thing about working for coca cola is working behind someones sloppy work. it is a very physical job and you earn every cent of your paycheck

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

    Pros

    With all the overtime, I was well compensated for the work. Many of the people I worked with had been there for years and were very welcoming.

    Cons

    Others were not... many people came in, did there job with little assistance to those who were new there. They often cheated the system to make it appear they were maximizing their efforts when they were just cutting corners. Management seemed to care about nothing. Often back-to-back-to-back 12 hour days in a hot warehouse.
