    Pros

    Good benefits no stress on the job

    Cons

    Very strange environment. They cared more about reports numbers than actually fixing anything. Most of the people I worked with were retirement age. I later heard my replacement lasted a week before leaving.

    Pros

    Great people working at CCE and got to know a lot of great people in the community...Zoo, Children's Museum and local HS administrators to name just a few.

    Cons

    CCE: we nicknamed it Constantly Changing Environment. A lot of UN-neccesary changes. Make a plan and stick to it.

    Pros

    Great employees. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Work life balance is horrible. They want you to put work first - everything else doesn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Value your current, hardworking and very loyal employees.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For promotion, it was fair, if you keep polishing yourself up, you will have chances to apply for better positions and pay(but still a lot lower than other companies would pay). Of course, you'll have to pass oral tests and interviews by at least 3 people. The training is provided all the time, and Coke supported your advanced education. (don't know about now)

    Cons

    I felt my every minute at Coke was monitored by the management. The atmosphere was like at elementary school or semi-military. Everything appeared very generous and free, yet it was under strict control. We had to work very hard but still didn't get any raise. We were not allowed (informal rule for everybody) to wear blue/red/white at some normal occasions because it is Pepsi's colors. The manager warned us not to discuss our pay and raise anytime, even privately. Even short Chatting will be warned, and there were penalty after the 3rd tardiness in a month...a lot of overtime and endless deadlines...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management style was so old-school and silly. I am a self-starter, but it just turned me off by listening to their rules and announcements. Also, benefits and higher pay are more encouraging than company potluck and birthday party.
