I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Competitive salary (if hired from the outside) and fast-paced corporate culture make working for the world's most recognizable brand very rewarding.

Cons

Regimented processes are outdated and senior management/executive leadership needs more "diversity of thought".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loosen the "reigns" and learn to trust!

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    discounts from cable, cellular bills, great work schedule, competitive pay

    Cons

    people quit often and their responsibilities became yours, often worked 6 days straight, 12-13 hour days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a schedule that is consistent so that time could be spent with families, amongst other things. 6 days a week and the day varied could wear down anyone.

    Current Employee - Senior Research Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    great for resume builder (if you don't already have a big CPG in your work exp)
    great long-term incenties at lower levels (for now as i have a feeling this will be changing soon)
    decent base pay, especially if you are in Atlanta
    work-life balance is outstanding (very much 9-5)

    Cons

    extremely low budgets that get sliced every year
    very sales driven organization - keep spinning the data vs. focusing on big picture
    inflated titles with no real responsibility
    no thought process on how to measure ROI
    extremely behind the curve on new thinking
    limited career advancement (hire from outside for director + positions)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to start investing in people - #5 priority for the organization. really?
    great salaries are great for short term but mean nothing from personal development

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
