    Pros

    Decent pay - consistent long-term incentive program. Varied work opportunities. Outstanding work/life balance

    Cons

    New senior leadership seems to have a clear vision for direction of the Company, IT leadership a little less sure.

    Career management at Coca-Cola is self-serve. I have had a succession of managers who have been exceptional career coaches, but these have been the exception rather than the rule. Compensation curve flattens with tenure - as with most large companies.
