    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great working for the number one most recognized brand in the world.

    Cons

    Started my career here 5 years ago and the company was much different, was much smaller and had a great culture and rewards, slowly this all disappeared as the company became bigger and you became just a number and expendable just to please the shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to your roots that made this once a great place to work for.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Purpose Statement
    Great on resume
    Pro and Con - for every year of experience at Coca Cola it will be akin to 3 years of experience elsewhere

    Cons

    This company is called "Consolidated" for a reason. Less is more here. Less resourced and more work for everyone else.
    Communication is systemically bad with this company top to bottom and bottom to top.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better.
    Plan better.
    Build a more innovative and comprehensive compensation package for prospective employees.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time

    Pros

    Not stuck in an office all day.
    Coca-Cola name is great on resume.
    A lot of fringe benefits at times.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs and re-structuring over the past year. Approximately 25% of office and sales staff have been cut in the past year with remaining employees expected to pick up slack for no extra pay.

    Advice to Management

    You can only cut back on the number of employees so much before the morale loss and decreased level of service customers receive result in profit losses that outweigh the cost savings. "Honoring God in all we do" is the company motto, but the almighty dollar seems to be the god around here when there are layoffs of much needed employees 3 weeks before Christmas.
