    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Exposure to seniour leadership. Flexibility. You will learn continous improvement. We live it, breath it!!

    Cons

    No many tracks for development and promotion. Sales and Finance are where all the opportunities are. Benefits are not competitive when compared to peer companies. Salary is below average, health insurance and 401K below average. Perks are okay if you work on the Marketing or Sales side. Strategy and Senior Leadership direction is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a strategy in place. Fix the route to market. It is currently our biggerst impediment to growth.

    Pros

    the sale of beverages is not going away,your job is seccure as long as you can perform.They have new equipment,2013 frieghtliners,3yr old power jacks,and forklifts,the building was just remodeled and is set up nicely.
    They have good insurance,health,dental,eye,long and short term dissability 401k,and more.

    Cons

    wichita ks plant,the head boss is not honest,management can be harsh and hard to work for.
    drivers clock in at 4 am. others at 5 am.i was getting 50 to 60 hours a week,but they did away with part of my route ,now they are hard to get 40 hr. a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    little to no chance,if you do have a chance to be in management,you will take a pay cut,and work more hours,for a newer person thats okey,but if you have any time in at all it don't make sence

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This company manages its finances well, which is really good for its stockholders. It is a growing company that has a lot of room for growth in the beverage market.

    Cons

    This big company overworks and underpays its sales team. Year after year, the sales force is reduced, leaving the average person in sales with more brands to sell to more customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Begin to look out for your employees! Lose the Big Bureaucratic feel of the organization.

    Pros

    The employees are great to work with. Middle management that have been around for a while know how to work in the industry.

    Cons

    The higher up management seem to spent a lot of time looking at computer screens and running reports. They are not seen in the market much, and when they are in the market they are taken to store that have been set up for show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees feel appreciated. Be in the market more and offer guidance not demands. Give the people in the market on a daily basis the backing of the company.

    Terrible Management.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits were more than fair. With certain members of management - the culture was great.

    Cons

    lack of training
    expectation level did not match training level
    unprofessional management
    threats instead of coaching

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management needs to be more involved and know what's going on with management at each level. Branch managers/warehouse managers have made threats, stolen and driven morale in negative ways.

    Employees often don't leave their jobs but their management.
