    I have been working at The Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    Salary & benefits; breadth of opportunities, flexible work environment; people - the individual contributors

    Cons

    Very little changes to leadership at the vice president level. As a result, divisions are run by clusters of individuals that tend to protect each other. Some of the leaders only represent the values of the company on the surface.

    Managers tend to have a pre-determined candidate for roles and the interview process is simply for human resource purposes. Networking is critical to secure a promotion or a lateral position.

    Advice to Management

    The continual reorganizations have severely damaged the culture of the company. Change the executives that are repeatedly conducting these exercises in the name of growth versus shrinking the ranks of frontline associates.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and a great office space.

    Cons

    Yearly or even more often "reorganizations" that have you constantly wondering if your job will be impacted.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard to get into the groove of a job and your organization, when you keep changing it. If we want to "work better" then give us a chance to find that way, before the whole cart is overturned, again.

    Pros

    Working for this company gives you a sense of security the benefits are great the salary is acceptable!

    Cons

    Be ready to work long hours not a 9-5 per say! You’re tasked to do more than your share specially when staff issues arise. There’s no true plan of action to address the ongoing problems in this area. The company does a poor job at hiring long term talent.. mostly because they look at it as a revolving door perspective they expect loyalty and commitment but that is not returned.. although salary is somewhat competitive they are not realistic with local cost of living increases and your performance reviews are not based on a individual target but rather a larger scale which may include other department results. Same goes for bonuses. Example if sales or distribution hit a certain number or miss it, this will affect the warehouse bonus..

    Advice to Management

    Management should be active in actual leadership. Manage people and situations not attempt to “control by button”.
