Getting Better Operationally, But Culturally Sick

I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

If you like working with bright people, this is a great place for you. Operationally, Coke is getting better and better, with a long runway for further improvements. That's great for shareholders.

Cons

But... Managers often take credit for the work of others in ways I've never seen anywhere else. I happens everywhere but is worse at Coca-Cola. Also, the cultures is too risk averse. If you take a risk and it fails, no matter how well-calculated, expect to get fried for it.

Advice to Management

Take a hard look at middle management and see how your behavior drives these perverse behaviors.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pulling the minimum is fairly easy, voice pick system was a little flakey at times but overall great to work with. Work is fast paced with 30 to 40 selectors working at a time but it's fairly easy to work at your own pace, whether it's just enough or your working hard. Benefits were pretty good, with only a 2 month waiting period, paid holidays off and 2 weeks vacation with 3 floating holidays.

    Cons

    Pay is decent, with some incentives, but not that competitive compared with similar order selecting jobs elsewhere

    - high stress & pressure environment

    Advice to Management

    -Require regional & local executives(MU VP's & Sales Directors) to spend more time in the market place meeting customers and Coca-Cola employees.

    -Reduce the amount of tracking and useless reporting/conference calls. Provide more/better support to front line leaders.

    -Stop allowing MBA's in offices to roll out new programs for the entire country and/or market unit which may or may not apply to specific demographics and markets.

    -Get competitive on wholesale costs & price points.

    -Put less emphasis on labor leverage and more emphasis on customer & employee satisfaction.

    -Open the purse and invest in the right people and equipment for long term gains.

    -Eliminate the HERE Team and revert to regional & local HR support.

    -Revamp the recruiting process - it is lengthy, arduous & often yields poor candidates.

    -Promote based on ability, determination & qualifications instead of ethnicity, gender or diversity.
