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

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

Pros

Great Brand Name, Good 401k

Cons

DSM Salary is too low, compeition pays their DSM's at least 10-15k more and they aren't as micromanaged. CCNA is trying to drop CCR like a hot potato as they have been showcasing the company on trade visits to investors from the Middle East & China. Bad when an American company like CCR is trying to sell their company internationally where they could possibly clean house. Bad enough that rumors are that everyone in management will have to reapply for their jobs next year and if your'e lucky to keep your job they will move you to a different department or sales center. Even though CCE had its faults, This company was run better and focused more on customer value when it was CCE.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop Micromanaging!!!!!! Raise pay for management positions..... DSM's shouldnt make less than their subordinates.......

    Pros

    very nice coworkers in every level of this company, easy to talk to management, good salary

    Cons

    very high stress environment, because it's such a large company changes are rarely made, computer systems out of date and inefficient, no on the job training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have on the job training for your new hires and spend more time with your sales reps in the field so they can more quickly learn how to sell

    Pros

    Fast paced, every day a different challenge. Selling a product that is so iconic, so world reknowned it sells itself.

    Cons

    Not a place to make a difference in how things are managed. CCR is looking for followers that can get others to produce. this is called leadership and is a one note song. Creativity is not a good way to be noticed...hit your number by any means, no matter how ridiculous the goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-unite the company into self determining Sales Centers. The fragmentation of the Sales Markets, Distribution, has put sales resources at cross purposes, built more walls than bridges. Being nimble in the marketplace has been replaced by the paradign of being tracked ranked and published to define success.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
