    Pros

    You can gain a lot of experience and the name COCA COLA looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    The Union runs the show. They put in bogus complaints if you actually try to make them do their job.
    The management works in fear, therefore cower to union demands.
    Sales people are salaried while drivers are commission, a completely backwards concept.

    Advice to Management

    Back your people up and stop fearing the union. You let good people get tramples until they leave you and flourish elsewhere.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Casual work attire however verging on unprofessional

    Flexible work schedule

    Onsite gym facility

    Free parking unlike many other company's downtown

    Cons

    Red tape, too many processes and operating in silos. Pinching penny's with stock price on the decline yet they somehow have funds to renovate their headquarters while people are being laid off weekly.
    Change management is very poor, especially in nonprofit organizations

    Pension is no longer offered to incoming new hires

    Pay and job grades are decreasing annually.

    Morale is awful

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Look where you are spending money and try to improve morale.

    Pros

    Pay isn't bad but when the economy gets better they will hurt for for quality employees, they burning to many bridges

    Cons

    They show no loyalty at all , A person who works 22 years at a places put family life a side putting a lot of hours in answering texts and phone call all hours of the night to help make the plant grow and help grow all employees. To be discarded with so much disrespect and if they did any investigation at all they would have seen management at that plant was at fault and there were more people involved

    Advice to Management

    Stop being back stabbing people , while you think the brand is important the people ( employees) are the most important. Try being respectful

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    Global Company
    Great brand
    Talented and (mostly) great people

    Cons

    High politics, low senior leadership engagement beyond their own self interest.
    Lack of transparency. Long term strategy for the Company doesn't exist.
    It's difficult to advance if you are a woman or non-Caucasian - it is a Southern Old boys club where friends look after friends.
    Salaries and Benefits vary greatly depending where you work in the Company and continue to be cut. The nickel and dim'ing employees is increasing (e.g. a policy will be instituted to charge employees to park in Coca-Cola owned parking decks)

    Advice to Management

    Mr Kent must step aside so the Company can look to the future.
    Be transparent - you say you care about employees, but your actions towards them and the constant cutting and ever changing strategies and structures clearly show you don't.
    The most amazing people work at Coca-Cola with proper leadership and a relevant senior leadership team, we can do anything!
