    Great to hear that we are going to drive a consumer centric portfolio. Definitely heading in the right direction. Continue to empower people and hold them accountable

    I work for Coca-Cola inside sales for a little over 3 1/2 years. The people are very nice that I work with and you get a bonus every month according to your sales adherence and quality calls

    Change the one-year-old to six months when putting things on each of our records and offer more growth to move up

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

    Pros

    great office environment, newly renovated with lots of perks

    Cons

    Very political, open positions are almost always filled before interviews start. The Company gets very stuck on job grades and doesn't let you skip job grades even if you're qualified for an open position. They make it very hard to advance in the Company. If you start as an administrative assistant, HR will do everything in their power to keep you admin and and hold you back.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage interested admins to network and cross train to learn to skills to advance in the Company.
