    Pros

    Really great benefits. Nice work environment in each department. Had a friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Overworked and under appreciated from management. Expect long hours for average pay. Hard to move up since people keep their jobs long-term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just talk to employees when bad stuff happens. Give compliments when jobs are performed well.

    Pros

    I loved my experience as an executive assistant. Being able to work along side highly intelligent c-level executives has been such a great experience.

    Cons

    I have received many complaints from frontline employees at the plants about unfair work practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on your employee engagement to resolve employee issues with workplace treatment.

    Solid company to work for but nothing great in terms of advancement

    Current Employee - Account Manager in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you can get your job down and do a good job you are pretty much left alone. The stress levels are lower here than most sales jobs because you get paid regardless of what your numbers are and can even still earn a bonus. Benefits are decent and the work/life balance is good as long as you know what you are doing

    Cons

    Advancement is tough unless your one of the chosen ones. Salary is what it is. It does not jump much and if you have a tough year for bonuses you may be earning less this year than in previous years. Expect a 2-3% increase roughly for a good review

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on advancing employees more rather than keeping people in the same role

    Pros

    Autonomy. Excellent people and culture. Fairly easy job. Establish great relationships with customers. Few meetings and conference calls, otherwise you schedule your day as you see fit.

    Cons

    Not much to complain about. A lot of change in the structure of the work. Your job resposibilities today could be significantly different 6 months from now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    Working for this iconic brand is a dream come true. The team atmosphere and collaberation amoung peers with the work place design is great.

    Cons

    The current need to cut costs is challenging but the vision has been set forth and we are heading in the positive direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm concerned about the buyout rumors I'm reading.Especially after reading the reviews on glassdoor from Heinz employees. I'm concerned about how employees will be treated, especially reading about how women workers are treated after 3G purchased Heinz. Don't let them destroy this iconic brand!
