    Pros

    Great benefits, in house training and compensation.

    Cons

    The continuous re-organizations always keep you guessing if you will have a job. Company is outsourcing everything in the IT arena.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing IT functions hurts the business. Is anybody concerned and or listening?

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I felt that I was paid well. I enjoyed communicating and working with my equals, communication could have been better with some superiors, but over it was good.

    Cons

    I wish I could have had more time off and it would have been easier, to plan. I wish that there would have been nicer offices.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    Most of the workers are kind and hard working people.
    They pay fairly well... for a few reasons. (see Cons)

    Cons

    Principles and management are not at all professional in their dealings with the people that work for them. Everyone is overworked. No one has time to help others, if they are asked. I was personally yelled at in front of everyone (they have an open floor plan) several times for asking for help. If you make a mistake, you WILL be called out in front of everyone. Very embarrassing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First, think about learning the proper use of the Agile methodology of software development. It was not intended as a tool for micromanagement. The role of scrum master should not require a virtual whip! Second, be a lot more forgiving of when people are expected to show up for work. Atlanta traffic is the worst I have ever encountered and one cannot control the outcomes of weather or stupidity. Consider the words trust and telecommuting. Third, make sure that people are treated with respect. I surely was not. And lastly, two or three people to a cube does not exactly show a properly planned project, now does it? The working environment is horrific!
