Don’t leave at message at Coca-Cola HQ

Forget about leaving a voice mail at Coca-Cola Co.’s Atlanta headquarters. Send a text instead.

Office voice mail at the world’s largest soft-drink maker was shut down “to simplify the way we work and increase productivity,” according to an internal memo from chief information officer Ed Steinike obtained by Bloomberg. The change went into effect this month, and a standard outgoing message now throws up an electronic stiff arm, telling callers to try later or use “an alternative method” to contact the person.
