Sounds good, but is it?

Manager (Former Employee)
Hollywood, FL (US)

I worked at Coca-Cola Refreshments full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWorking for worlds most recognized trademark. Benefits competitive. Upon hire, all employees are encourage towards advancement ( but doesn't pan out for more than 15%).

ConsThe company name does not equal career. Where you work doesn't define you as a worker.
Promotions are far and few between and as management changes, so do those promoted. Unfair and inconsistent. You are made to feel you should be happy for a job, but you know you are worth and deserve more. Managers know less than most of their reports. Managers are not held accountable for high turn over or complaints.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your management team and ask your employees who they do or will respect as their manager. You should be able to formulate better decisions that way and keep retention and moral higher. Obviously you can skew things anyway you want but the engagement results are consistent and desperate for improvementt

Good people but every 2 yrs expect a reorg.

Category Advisor (Former Employee)

I worked at Coca-Cola Refreshments full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLots of resources for analytical needs. There were some really good people to work with. There was a good work life balance.

ConsAdvancement opportunities seem more predicated on who you knew. This lead to people placed in leadership positions that should not have been. It's very frustrating to have a manager who was ill prepared for the role.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Coach up or coach out.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Coca-Cola Refreshments full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe Coca-Cola name looks good on a resume. Usually pretty easy to get into the system, gain some experience and basic skills and build your resume for your next company.

ConsExtremely fast paced environment with consistent reorganizations. Very much a coach up or coach out atmosphere. Only good for a career if you plan to move or move-up every few years.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlace a higher importance on showing your employees that they are valued and that you value individualism. Do a better job of training and developing your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
