I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

When out in the " trade ", you avoided upper management.

Cons

The Southern California part of the business is built on riding the backs of your subordinates. I once casually mentioned to a Senior Vice President what a good job one individual was doing. His reply was " I only want to here about who's not doing a good job". Your bonus was based on certain criteria, as with any company. The problem was that they would change the criteria to suit the Branch after the qualified period had ended, usually costing you most if not all of your bonus. This was by far one of the worst companies I ever had the displeasure of working with. Take some good advice and stay away from this company unless you like high stress, low pay and bad working conditions.

Advice to Management

Atlanta.... Take a closer look at your management team in Southern California if you really even care at all.

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

    Pros

    Your time as an account manager is very flexible, and quotas are laid out clearly and are achivable. Good 401k, health and vacation benefit package. Auto reimbersement plus miliage.

    Cons

    When the micro managing starts it gets hecktic and last for a long period of time. Management can be very involved when trade visits arise, and usually leave you with a unwelcoming situation with clients and customers.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coke is global iconic brand and it is distributed all over the world. California largest plants are on the West Coast.
    Several career advancement opportunities if you are in sales

    Cons

    Not engaged with TPM Methodology or LSS Methodology
    Preventive Maintenance is not at the fore front with mechanics (always a run to failure mentality)
    No Engineering Support within the Plant (3rd Party Contractor will assist the plant as needed)

    Advice to Management

    Share out the plant vision to the hourly employees
    Hold salary individuals accountable with realistic and obtainable goals and objectives
