I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good pay and great benefits, team oriented culture, rewarded well for performance. The company strives to be cutting edge and provides the best tools for the job, etc.

Cons

Not a place to go if you have an education and are looking to apply it (unless something like accounting). Really anyone can work their way up in this company so education isn't always a big factor. Not a lot of upward movement and lots of competition for the few managerial positions (lateral movement for years). Lots of pressure from the top to perform. You'll often feel overworked and underappreciated. They've been downsizing and micromanaging for the last year and a half. Sometimes a bit unorganized. Lots of politics - but that's expected. Long hours.

Advice to Management

You have lots of good talent working for you. Do a better job evaluating your talent and promoting those that work hard. People leave there feeling like they're in a dead end job at the world's largest beverage company.

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

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers, flexible schedule, decent pay (but getting worse as compensation and benefits are reduced).

    Cons

    Dysfunctional and incompetent leadership, political agendas, discrimination labeled as diversity (you will never be promoted if you are a white male), constant promotions for anyone who is a female or minority regardless of talent or skill.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and recognize your employees, don't assume employees are happy because you say they are, understand that some of those who work under you are smarter than you and have better ideas (you can learn a lot from your employees if you can avoid being egotistical, even for a minute), stop reducing compensation and benefits for entry-level employees while continuing to give yourselves big bonuses.

    This company has been known as one of the top ten companies best place to work for. Coca Cola Refreshments is a very stable work place.

    Cons

    There is nothing I find as cons in this company.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the company is heading in the right direction to align with the economy.
