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

    Pros

    Company discounts, well managed 401K program, tuition reimbursement, flex time programs. Retired employees receive a lifetime free lunch. Many locations to apply to.

    Cons

    Unrealistic performance and goal setting due to conflicting priorities among client and team staff, thus affecting work life balance. High deductible health insurance, low annual increases even if performance is exemplary. Upward movement can solely depend on who your manager is. High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be required to have a psychological profile test prior to being allowed to manage others.

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

    Pros

    Best brands in the world with some really smart people in the rank and file

    Cons

    Some CCNA divisional leadership has been here too long... good ole boy/girl club with a lot of empty suits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to learning and development, hire the right number of people to get it done, operational cost management is a tool not a solution - taking away car programs, benefits increases, lack of flexible working hours is problematic and does not keep pace with the modern world.

    Coca-Cola has the best brands but bad decisions are killing worker engagement and business results.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    Competitive pay and above average benefits.As others have said, we take a lot of pride in what we do. It's not an easy work environment but it can be rewarding.

    Cons

    There is a huge difference in company culture depending on which division and area you work. If you have difficulties excepting change, Coca-Cola is probably not a good fit for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local management does not always adhere to the company's core values.
