No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

work hard and you can advance, as long as your supervisor likes you and he is liked by his supervisor.
your left alone to do your job with little supervision

Cons

poor communication between all departments.
If your area sales manager lacks the ability to communicate beyond a monitor, it is going to be a very long ride.
little supervision and poor training.
A lot of talk, not much walk.

Advice to Management

stop putting people without college degrees in upper management positions. Yes, it makes a difference.

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

    Pros

    Big company, big leverage.
    Decent product portfolio, marketing power.
    Lots of incentives to leverage in opening new accounts.

    Cons

    Everything problem is someone else' fault.
    Too many silo departments, bureaucracy run amok with conflicting incentives, priorities and no transparency of information.
    Every transaction is looked at with short-term profit-maximizing thinking.

    Advice to Management

    There's more to a company's performance than stock price. (re: 2008)
    If you run in every direction at once, you end up in the same place you started.
