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

    Pros

    Working for this iconic brand is a dream come true. The team atmosphere and collaberation amoung peers with the work place design is great.

    Cons

    The current need to cut costs is challenging but the vision has been set forth and we are heading in the positive direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm concerned about the buyout rumors I'm reading.Especially after reading the reviews on glassdoor from Heinz employees. I'm concerned about how employees will be treated, especially reading about how women workers are treated after 3G purchased Heinz. Don't let them destroy this iconic brand!

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

    Pros

    well established company, very friendly team members and management and a relaxed environment to work in. The people I worked with seemed to enjoy their jobs and took time to get to know me.

    Cons

    Tough to move up in the company from some of the part time/temporary positions unless you have more prior experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More hands on training would be a benefit but not a necessity

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great to work at a company as iconic as Coke. Great resources and people. Great benefits and pay. I very much enjoyed my time at Coke and learned a great deal.

    Cons

    Talent acquisition resources are stretched too thin and therefore have a tough time supporting the needs of hiring managers. Also, many silos remain such that talented people are not given sufficient opportunities to develop into new roles. Too many silos.

    Great place to work if you are self-motivated and are willing to relocate. You can easily get stuck in a rut if you let

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

    Pros

    Growth, training opps, Many "outside of work' activities/further training,

    Cons

    work-life balance, salary. HQ forces us to be the same in each centre but we are all different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local DCs need some autonomy. We did it before and were succesful. Forcing us to streamline to HQ makes work harder
