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

    Pros

    The company and benefits offered as a whole are great. If you are looking for something different daily in terms of work and do not mind travelling then this is a great opportunity.

    Cons

    The territory and bonus compensation is not equal in terms of opportunity. The persons who hold the larger territories such as Auburn, Troy, and Fort Rucker out of Montgomery will get the most attention from the managers. Other less thriving areas such as West Alabama territory will not until people are complaining but are not consistently purchasing product. The training is not consistent either from employee to... employee or territory to territory but the goals are the same in terms of production. This is an EXTREMELY unrealistic expectation. The people in terms of who is working and how they run things can be the downfall. If there is an improvement plan placed on someone the plan is only unilateral. If the persons who implemented the plan "against you" have items to fulfill along with you, they are not required to hold up their end of the plan. Failure on their part will still cause termination on your part.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to rectify and realign there territory disparities. Realize that the success of improvement plans require the upholding of your plan for the overall success of the company. Failure to uphold your end to the improvement plan of the employee directly hurts the company too. This costs the company more money in unemployment compensation, replacement search, rehire, benefits, and training the... replacement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at The Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay, flexibility on where you work (depending on your manager)

    Cons

    Recently underwent a massive reorg with ~600 people impacted. Teams reduced in size but work load not changing and growing. Unrealistic expectations and minimal work/life balance. Consistent leadership Restructures causing employees to acquire multiple bosses within months. Lots of talk to change culture but little to no action. Politics are everything and talent is rarely acknowledged. Morale is extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    Change is important and necessary, however real change only comes from the top down and accountability is everything. Don’t just walk the walk.
