    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    Flat structure, very friendly and smart people. Lots of challenging projects for maths lovers asked programmers. Very flexible company, Great life/work balance

    Cons

    They are very good salesmen. The environment is highly focus in profit. They work for anyone who pays. Not a great social commitment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a more idealistic/utopian main goal. The company needs an ideology to follow, other wise, it will feel empty of meaning.

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Coke is that you are paid well according to your work and efforts. It has good benefits.

    Cons

    Constant re-organizations within the last 6 years negatively affect productivity, morale and loyalty to the Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair when giving feedback to associates and truly try to make them grow with positive constructive feedback. Overall: senior leadership needs to take ownership of their mistakes and stop doing re-organizations that affect employees and the bottom line.

    Pros

    Big name, a lot of networking opportunities which helps you grown and learn as a leader. Office has a good location. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Little investment in people, low pay, and vertical growth is slim. Easy to go unnoticed in such a big environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in people and promote within. Have more employee events to boost company morale. Do a better job of retaining interns.

    Former Employee - Account Manager Large Store in Dallas, TX (US)

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company listens to it's front line employees and makes changes in a timly matter to remedy an problems. Great Benefits (18 days PTO plus option to choose additional unpaid TO at begging of year). The people that work there are quality individuals and will help out with anything and not complain. It's a family company. A lot of families work there and there is very little turn around. Employees stay for life.

    Cons

    Lots of confusion as to what sales priorities are. They seem to change every week. Sales associates have too many stores to properly service accounts the way Coke wants you too. There is a lot of bad communication between departments (merchandising, distribution and sales)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more account managers (especially large store). 11 - 13 stores per person is too many to give the customer service the company expects.
