    I have been working at The Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fair Pay Great Benefit Package Competitive Environment Entrepreneurial Mindsets Job Security Low Stress (Not Counting Holidays They are Stressful) Unlimited Career Advancement if Willing to Relocate

    Cons

    Runzheimer for Mileage Reimbursement is Unfair Pay it is Not Even Close to 57 Cents per Mile Excessive Restructuring (Every Two Years it Seems) Unclear Bonus Structures and Payout Communication Some Micromanagement at Times Too Many Trackers Taking Focus off Total Volume Lots of Company Waste They Could Give us all a $5,000 Raise with all the Wasted Racks/Shippers/POS etc etc.

    Advice to Management

    Continue letting your frontline associates manage the business with an entrepreneurial mindset. People appreciate being trusted to do their jobs. We have to get rid of Runzheimer for mileage as it doesn’t even cover gas, wear/tear, tires, and maintenance on your vehicle. People are losing money driving their vehicles for you. Slow down on innovative brands and focus more on innovation within our current brands.

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

    Pros

    Coca-Cola cares about developing their people and getting the right people doing the right job. It is an ever changing industry with new and innovative technology and tools that are constantly being made available to its people.

    Cons

    The initial on boarding and training process can be more thorough. Instead of being "in the trade" right away, it would be nice to have more of an emphasis on business acumen and understanding our job responsibility before being on the front line, essentially, of a job we might not fully understand yet.

    Pros

    Great team environment, amazing in field team and perfect opportunity to work with a group and develop you own self

    Cons

    Longer days, not a realistic compensation rate, people managers are not necessarily on the same page as the field representitives

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work, but the consistent change in direction can at times become frustrating. Great people from the top down exist, but there is opportunity in over areas

    Pros

    Great on your resume and good experience overall

    Cons

    hours work won't match your pay - you need to be «in» the gang to be promoted. If you are not, there is no reason for you to work harder, has someone else with less skills with get promoted. Once you understand this, you change company to get a better job position and a better pay :)

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you will do........... so far, really poor management skills, especially in Province of Quebec..........
