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

    Pros

    It was a fun environment, with lots of progression. There were lots of oppotunities for certain teams but in the Finance department things were limited as there was a budget control in place.

    Cons

    Long hours, bad canteen, not enough communication. Some of the more senior managment is stuck in a rut and not considering new market developments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A clear promotion path.

    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 worked at Coca-Cola Company as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great starting point for my career in the office/facilities services field. Learned a multitude of skills from the ever increasing responsibilities, including:

    Microsoft Office, mail room and shipping skills, facilities skills, operating Xerox machines

    From the start, they were honest in telling me that they were unlikely to ever be in a position to make my position full-time due to the restructuring of the company that was taking place.

    Cons

    Well, they never were in a position to hire me full-time, so I remained a temp worker for 2 years until I was able to move on. No benefits, low pay for temps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If possible, make it a little easier for temps to find full-time positions within the company.

    Pros

    Brand identity, benefits, on par compensation

    Cons

    Funding for growth, funding in general operating very lean

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal growth, putting people first, working in silos causes rework.
