Don't ever need to pick up your kids - they'll tell you to hire a nanny to raise your kids. Don't ever go out on maternity leave - they won't backfill and you'll come back to hell and poorly done work. Don't ever have illness in your family - you'll be told you gave too much going on in your life to be able to focus on doing good work.

WORKING FOR THE COCA-COLA COMPANY CAN OPEN MANY DOORS. YOU NEED TO HAVE THE AMBITION AND THE PASSION TO SUCCEED - AND MAINTAIN - YOUR POSITION WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION.

Coca-Cola is making gender equality a priority for their company goals for the next 10 years. Although I admire their strong efforts to close the gap, the company is still predominantly male based in this stage.

A hyper-political company. Very difficult to reach upper ranks without having a friend or sponsor already there pull you up. Not a meritocracy.

    Maybe. Depends on the functional area you join. Some areas of the business have quite a few women. In marketing, nearly all the leadership is white male, the next wave of old-school coke guys.

Surround yourself with people who value diversity and inclusion and/or are in a business resource group. Outside of this community, it can be more difficult to find people who are supportive and celebrate differences.

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.

    Maybe. 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.

    Stop losing so many senior level women

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. 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.

You have to "build" relationships to get better opportunities. People whose numbers are not as great as yours tend to get position if they are men and brown nosers. So you have to learn to that your stellar numbers are not what get you to proceed.
