I worked at Coca-Cola Refreshments full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – flexibility during day
quality of product
Cons – Management is out of touch with what goes on in trade
You will not see a manager in trade unless they are forced to
Managers can not make a sales call unless a fellow manager is with them. They have a problem doing calls by themselves like others in the company do on a daily basis
Advice to Senior Management – Promote more within company. Working for someone with no experience is bad morale

I have been working at Coca-Cola Refreshments as an intern for less than a year
Pros – Great brand recognition for my first job
Other interns that were the same age
Opportunity to learn every facet of the business
Cons – Upper management at facility did a poor job of creating meaningful projects for interns
Barely any communication between direct manager and interns
Decisions are implemented slowly and involve a lot of politics
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Coca-Cola Refreshments
Pros – Vacation Time (3 weeks)
Not tied down to an office
World Known Brand
Cons – Transition from company car to personal car.
Sales team is too lean and can never hire the amount of people actually needed.
Holding other departments accountable.
Work-life balance. Lots of hours required. You would think that we are selling life-saving medication.
Too many Chiefs. Ways of execution and going to market frequently change.
Advice to Senior Management – You seriously need to reconsider the transition from company to personal cars. This is costly and you are about to lose a large piece of your sales force. Your people drive your bottom line. Don't forget that.
Also, you need to get more aggressive with price points.
