    Pros

    Vacation starts with 3 weeks, even for new employees. Decent medical coverage. Instantly recognizable everywhere you go. Becoming more open to telecommute options and a more relaxed dress code.

    Cons

    Advancement is difficult. They can change jobs in the middle of applying to them. There is a program for university students that guarantees them a job at the end of two years, without having to apply, often filling positions that current employees have applied for.

    Pros

    Entertaining people from all around the world Making lasting relationships, having fun and finding a job that is flexible for college students.

    Cons

    The pay and simplicity of the work. The inability to grow within the company, and the managers and supervisors who makes the jobs harder than it needs to be. Who knew that their would be so many rules and regulations on making people happy.

    Pros

    If you work hard, and have ANY interest in doing so, you're able to move around to different areas of the Company. This enables you to experience different perspectives of the Company / Bottler, as well as right brain / left brain opportunities. I highly recommend this Company. Remember that this IS a business and you must keep that in mind and keep your skillset fresh and relevant.

    Cons

    Hmmm. There's great benefits, pay that's in line with the market, wonderful cafeteria onsite, training available to beef up your skillset, extremely diverse and talented coworkers, AND free Coke,

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the people in the Company are just that . . . people. People have knowledge. Knowledge is something that is not easily recaptured once lost. When reviewing P&L's prior to a RIF or RAL, I'd encourage you to take into consideration the amount of knowledge lost when those with seniority are lost and 'newbies' brought on board. Fantastic for the bottom line, but catastrophic to the knowledge base.

    Pros

    Good benefits, Good people. Innovative company that is growing both domestically and internationally. True leaders in the industry. Vast opportunities in a global company.

    Cons

    Senior IT leadership appears "schizophrenic", has high turnover rates, and most often hires external applicants rather than promoting from within. Senior corporate leadership does not value IT. IT is constantly shrinking and being outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so reactive to the stock price. Your people are you second most valuable asset. Start treating them that way. Promote from within. Foster a sense of being valued and appreciated.

    Pros

    Supervisors weren't "on my back" observing everything I do! Freedom within job. Great set schedule! 120 hours of vacation, 24 hrs of floater holiday pay, sick pay, dental, vision, great health coverage, paid holidays, overtime allowed, 401K, stock options, tuition reimbursement was great, help pay for my car! This may differ from location but company is diverse, takes care of their employees financially, and family oriented!

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted. Have three college degrees, five years experience in work related field, great feedback from co workers and accounts, but only seniority seem to get promoted. Other merchandisers have been merchandising for five plus years doing same thing! Merchandise supervisors have been with company for 10 plus years and only at that level! Either their supervisor is not satisfied enough to promote them, the merch sups are content where they are at, or promotion simply sucks! A district sales manager at my branch has been with the company for 25 years. Why is he only a district sales manager? I've seen Pepsi district sales managers move up within two years. Advancement is terrible

    Advice to Management

    Stop making a priority to get everything done quickly but more efficient. PROMOTE your employees!!!! Seniority should not be everything, but performance should be what defines advancement!

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits always staying busy during the summer and lots of available time off in winter.

    Cons

    Forced overtime and pretty high turnover which makes others have to pick up slack.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about employees lives outside of work. Maybe a new form of time off outside of taking weeks at a time.

    Pros

    Solid company that won't go out of business. Experienced marketers that really know how to sell. It's nice to work at a company that is known all over the world.

    Cons

    Pay scale is low. It is geared toward employees working in Atlanta--a much cheaper place to live than Los Angeles.

    Advice to Management

    Bump up the salary scale to remain competitive. Get ahead of the marketplace. And offer a tea without sugar--not everybody likes the syrupy stuff.
