    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coca-Cola cares about developing their people and getting the right people doing the right job. It is an ever changing industry with new and innovative technology and tools that are constantly being made available to its people.

    Cons

    The initial on boarding and training process can be more thorough. Instead of being "in the trade" right away, it would be nice to have more of an emphasis on business acumen and understanding our job responsibility before being on the front line, essentially, of a job we might not fully understand yet.
