    Respected company, challenging work, growth opportunities availalbe

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThis is a large company with very competitive compensation. Being a large company, there is always room for job and career growth. The Coca-Cola company and brand name draws positive attention externally.

    ConsThe company continues to push the limits of work/life balance. There is a large amount of bureaucracy, but that can be expected in such a large, corporate environment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Poor

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe best thing about this company is the name you get to put on your resume. You get lots of freedom and pay is not bad

    ConsNo trust, lots of trackers, you don't know your goals, you use your own can, the wrong people are in management and hardly care about anything. In short this is a stepping stone to the next job.

    Horrible company to work for (Former MDM for over 2 years).

    Market Development Manager (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsThe only pros to working for Coca-Cola is the widely recognized name and the pension.

    ConsUnrealistic goals. Management this is utterly incompetent. Customer service is non existent. Service is horrible. Constant company reorganization. Micro-managed constantly. Very little room for advancement. Constant visits from upper management and Atlanta that result is everyone going absolutely nuts (everyone is afraid). Far too political. Pepsi is kicking their but and will soon overtake them as #1.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue first. Your management skills are horrible. Managing by fear and threats is NO way to get results. Listen to your employees and go to bat for them instead of throwing them under the bus constantly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lost in a big company

    Bulk Merchandiser (Former Employee) South Brunswick Terrace, NJ

    ProsLots of overtime available during the summer months. Offered competitive pay and mileage reimbursement. Managers were very helpful at times.

    ConsThey gave me a hard time when I took off for vacation and my mothers wedding. Only worked on weekends and when the off season came there was no work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare more about your workers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
