    I worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Give us a lot of autonomy. In respect of the general objective of the year of course.
    Big company so a lot of ressources. Leave place for us to make our mark.
    All good ideas are welcome.
    In the last years, took a very important and positive turn on health and safety issues.

    Cons

    Budget are very tight and not easy to achieve
    A lot of pressure around meeting financial numbers.
    A lot of hours needs to be invested to get the job done.
    Need to be creative to find solutions at low cost to meet objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk.
    Not the same emphasis is put on the mission and values of the company depending on which department we work for. This creates distortion on the decision process. Increasing the silo effect.
