I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits are decent for this type of company. Employee sales and online perks program are also very competitive with what others offer.

Cons

People are worn out. Everyone works 6 to 7 days a week anywhere from 11 to 13 hours with very poor hourly wages. Turnover is awful even for supervisors and above. Life gets even more miserable when there are audits. Employees are treated bad but can't go anywhere else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your people. Treat your employees like people !

    Unless a Dr Pepper facility, forget it, you don't matter, especially if you're a former Southeast Atlantic company.

    Pros

    Global name recognition on resume, that's all.

    Cons

    Very unorganized in all aspects, especially key accts in non-Dr Pepper regions. Blind leading the blind. Key accts likes to think big, but usually falls flat on ad pricing and promotions. So many times, an ad is supposed to happen and then you find out at store level the pricing is wrong or the item never made it in the ad. Then, key accts blames the buyer. The only reliable key acct activity is Snapple or core five brands because that's usually national.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice is to Exec level; get rid of all your left-over SE Atlantic management at branch and region level if they aren't cutting it. They are the problem because they are old school. Do like CCE and PBG did in the early 2000s. Start flushing the dead weight good ole boy network for more progressive, corporate minded people with bigger goals and aspirations. These guys are killing you as they wait out their 10-15 years until retirement.

    Pros

    Fun to work for a national brand company.

    Cons

    Cultural evolution that began with the divestiture from Cadbury went too far, resulting in an imbalance between the executive levels and the front lines, in terms of appreciation, recognition, rewards. Seems to have evolved into a boys club at HQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the value delivered by the front lines. Be a bit more humble and appreciative.
