    Former Employee - Business Development Manager in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company put my sales career in overdrive. I learned a lot and it helped me to develop my hunter mentality. I met some great people there as well. I liked the manager that hired me.

    Cons

    Wish I had a different manager. There is a lot of overtime and you have to be a road warrior. A lot of administrative things that make the day even longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a bit more understanding.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Great professional environment. The workforce was very well educated and competent in their work. Work hours weren't too long, but you had to stay late on occasion to meet a deadline.

    Cons

    CCE was constrained in many of their business initiatives due to their relationship with Coca-Coal Refreshments. Many opportunities to change and improve were stopped due to a potential negative impact to Coca-Coal Refreshments. Tend to hire from outside and not promote from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within to retain seasoned talent.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you like sales, account manager is a great position. Strong brand, customers need/want you in their business. Pretty good pay.

    Cons

    Negative culture, focused on sales numbers regardless if it's beneficial for the customer or not. Didn't care about store "look of success" until a corporate visit would happen then we would stage the entire city for 1 day of tours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in the field and help out instead of sitting in the office then complaining.
