    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 10 years

    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

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than a 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.

    Pros

    Faced with challenges each day which make you a better employee. Diverse brands. Great benefits package if you choose to enroll, available on day 1.

    Cons

    Annual performance reviews do not reflect true performance. They should establish mid-year reviews to update objectives and goals. Hard work is not always rewarded.

    Dynamic at local branch was off. Each department is isolated and there is little interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employee morale. Get input from the field team.

    Pros

    Health benefits were great. They helped me get my Class B, when others wouldn't. Bulk drivers were paid very well. Better than Coke and Pepsi.

    Cons

    Had to deliver and work FoodLion stores on a side loader. Doesn't make any sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire a bunch of thugs if you want to compete with the other major beverage companies.
