Current Employee - Account Development Manager in Edmonton, AB

I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than a year

Pros

Schedule flexibility
3 weeks vacation (plus you can buy an extra week)
Independance
Good opportunity for advancement to middle management
35-40 hour work week
Great team atmosphere

Cons

No guaranty on commissions (100% dependant on territory)
A lot of special projects that take you out of your role and territory
Minimal opportunity to impact sales volume (affecting commission)
Pay is not great, but is commensurate with ADM role

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better opportunity (more time) in our territories to have the impact we desire with our customers
Success and commission is tied too closely to the success (or failure ) of National and Key Account Managers

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I get to work with very dedicated hardworking people who for the life of me are day in and out giving their very best towards making the company meet its goals.

    Cons

    I am in my second year without a raise. Although one of our most important metrics sits at 89%. Glass half full...all Senior Mgt. is locked onto is the 11% not met. In my level my job has grown in the last 2 years by 35%. In my mid level mgt. position I have so many functions per day that none of them can be done well. All I can do with the work load is do everything I can do half assed.

    The situation at Coke has not always been like this...but the last few years we in Canada were taken over by Atlanta and since that has happened we have been so poorly managed that I have seen many very long time dedicated people leave or have been fired.

    Just one man's opinion...but the company no longer cares about it's employee's it only cares about the almighty dollar.

    #1 beverage compnay in the world...but a terrible employee relations company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for a employee friendly company soon...because your job is not secure...you will be replaced with someone with less skills and less years of dedication. Your years of hard work mean nothing anymore...run while you can.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Big company, big leverage.
    Decent product portfolio, marketing power.
    Lots of incentives to leverage in opening new accounts.

    Cons

    Everything problem is someone else' fault.
    Too many silo departments, bureaucracy run amok with conflicting incentives, priorities and no transparency of information.
    Every transaction is looked at with short-term profit-maximizing thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's more to a company's performance than stock price. (re: 2008)
    If you run in every direction at once, you end up in the same place you started.
