good days and bad days

Account Manager (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I worked at Coca-Cola Refreshments full-time for more than 5 years

Prosflexibility during day
good benefits
quality of product

ConsManagement 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 ManagementPromote more within company. Working for someone with no experience is bad morale

ConsUpper 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

Changing

District Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I have been working at Coca-Cola Refreshments

ProsVacation Time (3 weeks)
Not tied down to an office
World Known Brand

ConsTransition 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 ManagementYou 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.
