    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance, opportunity to advance (on other people's terms), experience with a globally recognized brand, opportunities to learn various facets of the business such as bottling, fountain, sales, operations, vending, etc.

    Cons

    The bottling side of the business known as Coca-Cola Refreshments has been sold off to Reyes Holdings LLC, who operates the bottlers in the Chicago area. Lots of instability with the bottler. Unless you work for CCNA or TCCC, you're not really a Coca-Cola employee.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees for their unique skill sets, and allow them to use those skill sets to advance to different areas of the business.

    Pros

    Recognized brands
    Global presence
    Franchised bottlers

    Cons

    Restructuring - cost cutting

    Products innovation and diversification - failed to develop and market healthy alternatives

    Advice to Management

    Moving to leaner, more agile operating model is the right strategy. Don't mistake reductions in employee headcount with an offset in outsourced services as achieving a lean model - outsourced services often slows innovation.
    Losing economies of scale, local operations culture that led to growth and positive results.

    Great benefits 3 weeks paid vacation, set schedule, comfortable environment. Free drinks, casual dress code, paid training, free pool and table tennis
