    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    Great People, Good Benefits, Vacation Pay, Working for the most iconic brand in the world

    Cons

    Hours expected to work, too many completely unnecessary meetings and conference calls, unrealistic expectations, middle management not able to convey clear direction from executive leadership. Office politics....The Good 'Ol Boy network is alive and well at CCR.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your front line managers are telling you. Formulate your plans utilizing the collaborative input. Put together an Ad Calendar and price /plan mix that does not allow FSOP to undercut pricing strategies in Large and Small Store and be more forthcoming to your DSM's when you are going to do it. Stop having employees attend training sessions in an effort to just "check the box", it just wastes all of our time. If you are going to train someone to do something, make sure you are ready to implement those changes.

    Pros

    Work with your schedule, the hours are good. You hire in as first shift. The company is okay to work for

    Pros

    There are whole lots of changes underway in the foreseeable future within Coca-Cola and the independent bottlers. This makes Coca-Cola a great environment for those that thrive on change as well as change management support professionals. It is a ripe environment for process improvement and process efficiencies recommendations and initiatives. Coca-Cola is a good place for creative talent in the marketing discipline. It is a ripe environment to make recommendations enhancing the customer and or consumer process and products. There are many great people to work with which makes a fantastic opportunity to meet good people that you may enjoy working with. The HQ has been recently renovated and provides many onsite benefits.

    Cons

    The company is in the middle of massive and very drastic changes on every level of corporate operations. This makes it difficult to move things forward in a consistent and timely manner. There is a large volume of work to be completed with few resources and even less guidance. The scope and breadth of change makes it very difficult to performance even basic tasks. Some of the performance expectations are not realistic given the current operating environment. Workers are feeling the pressure of change and it is impacting the culture and making the culture more passive aggressive and less productive.

    Advice to Management

    work hard to be respectful of employees
