A good company, good benefits, work with a lot of talented people. If you are an ambitous woman that wants to run a business you should look elsewhere or you will be frustrated.

generally a good company for women in functional roles at lower and mid levels. They try to promote women but seems to be all in staff type roles not general management or line roles. Those are for the men and it is a tight boys club network. You hear things like "we want women in general management roles but need to build our bench strength as we don't have any women with the skills". The problem is that same excuse has been used for over 20yrs. Again, they have gotten really good at promoting women into senior level support or staff roles they just can't quite let go of the notion that women aren't qualified to run businesses. Hiring practices for senior level roles are often placements based on who you know and who supports you. Most of the Sr level men in general management roles have a tight network of other men so they don't really get to know and appreciate the female talent and therefore perpetuate the problem.
Senior level women are leaving Coke at a rapid pace these days, and potential employees need to take that into consideration. In some cases, women have found better opportunities outside the company (mid and senior level women often talk amongst ourselves about being blocked for more senior roles at Coke and having to leave to advance). In other cases, senior women have been ousted by male executives. The boys' club is very real in most departments at Coke.

It depends what you want out of your employer. Coke is probably ok for junior level women looking for a brand name to put on their resumes. In some pockets, it is also ok for women who want to work 35-40 hours per week and don't care in the least about advancement.
My role has great flexibility so that is awesome for being home to take care of sick kids. I've been there 19 years and have seen a lot of changes for the good. However, it is still an old boys club. The women who do advance seem to have been tapped for the spotlight, almost like a way for senior leadership to say, "see, we like women here!!!" It comes across as fake. The salary and benefits are good, so I stay.
I feel like it is really hard to advance while also being a mother - unless your husband stays home. Though there is a flexible work arrangement, you are definitely "mommy tracked" if you take advantage of it.
