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

    Pros

    I was pleased with the salary and benefits. The Company listens to its employees. They made significant changes during the time that I worked there to attract and keep excellent talent.

    Cons

    I did not enjoy commuting downtown. Working remotely was not always an option.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees and make changes when needed.

    I have been working at The Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, great diverse group of people from all over the world, global opportunities, good benefits on campus, and passionate employees.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible. They started me off under the 20th percentile of the average market pay, when I got the job (much higher job grade than previous role) increased my salary only by $5K, and didn't include my previous year's worth of work/salary increase. If you want good pay, this is not the company for you.
    Politics are still a big game.
    There are a lot of people with little to no tech savvy skills.
    Too many lay offs.

    Pros

    Benefits are okay, compensation is competitive, management is great

    Cons

    Just like everywhere else, if you're good at your job that will put a ton of responsibility on your plate.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate when you've got good employees.

    I have been working at The Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Vacation time (3 weeks to start)
    Work from home options (100% remote for my group)
    Medical/dental benefits - including pension
    Focus on professional development
    Worlwide brand - opportunity to potentially transfer if you have the right skillset
    Will work with valued employees to reassign them if their job role was eliminated in corporate restructure shuffle
    Lots of swag (shirts, bottles, trinkets, etc)
    Free drinks (if you're into that)
    Discounts on vacations, etc.
    On site gym

    Cons

    Constant restructuring
    Yearly layoffs
    Pay is well below industry standard - and they are aware but barely do anything to make it right
    Abysmal training

    Advice to Management

    Pay us fairly and we will stay. We love the brand but it does not pay our bills to work for peanuts.

    Promote from within. Stop laying people off and consolidating multiple jobs into one and calling that a promotion for someone. There's no surprise when that person burns out and disappears.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits with fairly friendly staffing within the unit

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations during times forced to take on extra stores because others were allowed to coast minimally due to union protection. If you do more do not expect anything more than maybe a thanks before they add to workload because of the above mentioned lack of unforced responsibility. The max pay a merchandiser can receive at this unit is low considering length of employment coupled with quality work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on helping the quality employees and remove the ones coasting under union protection. Support one another instead of allowing upper management to cripple your already overworked quality employees.
