    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing. By far the worst job I have ever had.

    Cons

    Everything. Completely exploited as a new employee. Poor management and trainers (rude and sexist), terrible training. Not shown anything and left to figure it out on your own, long hours ( don't be surprised if you work 14 hours a day without time to take break),Terrible pay to work like a slave and poor compensation to drive all over south western Ontario.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your hiring system and the people you have training new people if you want people to stick around.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coke is for motivated and hungry individuals. Amazing culture where upwards and lateral movement within the organization is limitless and in fact encouraged. Merit based company that doesn't show bias to age, degree or seniority.

    Cons

    Disconnects between departments and softwares lead to frustrating day to day efforts to be productive. Management is often overworked as they bear the grunt of inefficient and imperfect communication.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for leading by example. We need to iron out major kinks in our systems to stay competitive!
