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

    Pros

    Free Coke; tuition reimbursement; good lunch options, awesome new building

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Lacking communication from leadership. No clear strategic direction. Poorly trained managers.

    Advice to Management

    Get trained and get on the same page. The chaos and indecisiveness is very telling

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

    Pros

    We got a lot of free merchandise, insurance wasn't bad.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible for the amount of work you do and they give crappy raises.

    Advice to Management

    If someone tells you about an issue, don't ignore it an hope it resolves itself.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    you are your own most of the time, drive own car, meet lots of people

    Cons

    no opportunities to move up, no commision, pay wasnt very good for what you do

    Advice to Management

    Tomball TX needs a new supervisor, the current one is very unpleasant to work for.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company as a contractor

    Pros

    Got to leave if it was slow

    Cons

    No PTO, only three unpaid days of sick as that's the "statistical average", contract with the dangling of becoming perm (about 4 in 60+ get it and most of those are favored by management), low morale, low pay comparatively. Watched people literally walk out and leave to never come back.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to play favorites, at least keep it a little less blatant.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Brand recognition, good benefits and a few trustworthy people

    Cons

    Horrible political environment - it's who you know, how you manage up and if you are 'diverse'
    If you are wanted gone or not liked, they will find a way to terminate you
    Diversity is one sided and certain people are protected even if they are poor performers
    Know what you are getting into before you accept a position.

    Advice to Management

    Follow up on what you say. If you conduct an engagement survey be honest about the results and take action. People like to say they work at Coke but don't like working there. People live in fear. Year over year, for over 8 years, there have been layoffs. Treat people consistently and stop protecting those who are poor performers out of fear.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Entry level sales job. I am having a hard time to come up with pros. It is a job???

    Cons

    This is a large company. You feel like you are working for a large company. The upper management has lost all touch of reality. Pay is poor. Incentives are not realistic. Too many people doing the same job in the same area creating a hostile environment.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink how you are going to business. Why does the competition work for the same company? The company should be competing with other companies not ourselves. Pay your tenured associates the going rate. Remember it cost money to train new people and it is the tenured associates that do the training.
