    Pros

    Worked on your own and friendly people on accounts serviced

    Cons

    No room to advance. upper management would rather be out playing golf then helping. Dying brand that is at the end of its life cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Find a different job and get off the sinking ship.

    Pros

    Good Benefits and a great product.

    Cons

    This company is part of Coca-Cola. If you want to work in an environment that holds creativity back because of the organization size...this company is for you.

    Hours, people, easy jobs, perks, false hope

    Cons

    management has no idea what they are doing, ignore input from employees. Over worked employees.

    Fire your current management and start all over.

    Pros

    Working for a company that promotes a healthy lifestyle is great and Odwalla fits that bill. The brand has some consumer recognition and its fun hearing people say "I love your juice". There are some great people who work for Odwalla, most of which have for many years.

    Cons

    The company lacks vision and the leadership seems to be falling apart over the past year. The company has been unstable since the re-org in 2008 and especially after their President left. The leadership isn't in touch with the company or its people. Working for Odwalla is also difficult during the economic downturn as the product is a luxery item and the price is not attractive to shoppers.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the major problems with supply chain and operations. Marketing needs a lot of work. The brand was a great one, look back to its roots and understand where it needs to go. Don't continue down the path of making this just another Coke brand as it will fail.
