    Former Employee - District Sales Manager in Saint Paul, MN (US)

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

    Pros

    Pay. Benefits. Working with the coolest sales folks around. Being armed with as much knowledge as possible about the prospective company is in your best interest. Not only will it help you formulate more insightful questions, it will boost your confidence as well.

    Cons

    Commute time, for me. Not much upward mobility without a 4 year college degree. More training options would be great. Allowing more work-from-home arrangements would be even better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more work-from-home arrangements

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great relationships and camaraderie, most recognizable brand in the world helps get you into potential new accounts, but customers will have expectations because it is such a large and well known company,

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, sometimes company loses sight of what is most important and why we are in business - the customer. It is a major challenge to sell any product or promotion when the customer or potential customer you are selling has issues with your service...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Service needs to be first and foremost!

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Atlanta, GA (US)

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    An historic environment to work in and a great campus culture like experience. Located in the heart of Atlanta, it also provides easy access to downtown activities.

    Cons

    Located in the heart of Atlanta, so if you live in the suburbs the commute is difficult. Also, the highly professional environment was demanding, especially for a young adult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you've just stepped in from the outside and think you can do it all better than those that have been there for years, think again. It may have been tried and tested and failed for good reason.

    Current Employee - MBA Summer Intern  in  Atlanta, GA (US)
    Current Employee - MBA Summer Intern in Atlanta, GA (US)

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As an intern, you would want to get a big brand name company experience on your resume, and what better than Coca-Cola. The work culture is professional, highly motivated, yet relaxed and calm. People just go about doing their jobs and the managers support their interns through their growth. There were periodic reviews to keep interns on track with their goals (yes, there were goals assigned at the start of the internship, which is great!). Also, at the end of the internship, each intern had to make an executive presentation to the company execs....good visibility to the top management.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for international students / job applicants.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with a lot of intelligent and skilled colleagues for a global brand.

    Cons

    The IT organization is moving towards a 'lean' organization which may lead to some challenges in delivering solutions for next year ..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promoting IT (development) individuals at lower levels for strong deliverables and reviews.
