    Pros

    Job security working for such a large company. Okay pay rate.

    Cons

    Inbound calls constantly/non-stop. Very strict on breaks and you have to bid for your schedule. It will take you 5-10+ years to move up. Will offer you to work in different roles while keeping the same position title and no increase in pay. Extremely high turn over.

  3. "Most mismanaged workplace imaginable tied in with incredibly ridiculous work load"

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

    Pros

    Worked independently almost every single day, company offers work vehicles, can sometimes be slightly somewhat of an almost decent environment

    Cons

    There's to much to explain but very little stability if any left, bad management, no feedback, and extremely sexist company.

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay, unlimited overtime, not micro managed, great co workers willing to help when needed, union, paid for mileage driven

    Cons

    No work life balance, large work load, supervisors set you up to fail, 12-14 hours a day. They add stores without notifying you then ask what's taking so long.

    Advice to Management

    Send help when needed. Tell employees thank you/give praise for the hard work they do instead of always finding something negative to say. Talk to employees like adults not little kids and you will get a much better quality job done.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    The only pro of working for coke is you have a job.

    Cons

    Really way too many to mention. They don't care about their employees at all. It's helter skelter around there, with too many chiefs and not enough indians. coke has become the big lumbering giant that is falling.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Worldwide well known and recognized products.

    Cons

    High sales stress with low hourly pay and no overtime. Drive your own car with little compensation. You will be expected to achieve unattainable, unrealistic goals in a short amount of time. If you do reach incentive goals they will make excuses and prolong payouts until you give up asking. Managers will call you several times daily to "check in" and badger you while taking time away from your job then asking why you didn't complete your tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management does not have a clue as to what is going on. They only care about advancing themselves. Employees are truly unhappy in the environment but afraid of speaking up. Smoke screens are up everywhere in the company. Managers are managing by fear and intimidation. HR is protecting the company and do not care about employees.
