    Pros

    The company values results. Period. The positive of this is that you don't have to wonder what is expected of you.

    Cons

    Declining margins and sales in the soft drink space makes the culture very lean and penny conscious at the expense of quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees!

    Pros

    i have been working for this company for the past 4 years, and i have been promoted almost every year, but it doesn't show on the salary pay.

    Cons

    alot of driving with in your territory. if your planning to be in sales with this company, do not buy an expensive car!you will put more than the average 12-15k/miles a year on your car. they do not cover for gas nor wear and tear. Reimbursement for mileage is below government standards, the rest you have to claim in your taxes at the end of the year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get managers who care about you and your well being and not just worrying about beating Coke and Pepsi in every store or how many cases pushed out from the warehouse.

    Pros

    Discounted soda
    Insurance
    Off on the weekends
    Whould be a great company to work for if they paid more.

    Cons

    Can not live off salary. Do not understand why a company as large as DPSG pays their employees so little compared to other beverage manufacturers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth.

    Pros

    Good people. Favorable brand awareness. Diversity of brands outside of CSD segment.

    Cons

    - Little or no direction given by Sr. Mgt
    - Banking on "re-energizing" CSD's is contrary to how both consumers AND competitors see category
    - Depending on dept. antiquated view of how to treat employees.
    - Poor work life balance, weak HR department, tremendous stress

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of long term vision makes it clear that the company is being run for short term & until Sr. level management can retire and leave the company a prime candidate for a takeover.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. They have an excellent health insurance program. Their 401K has a good amount of matching and immediate vesting. Pay for merchandisers at my facility is the best in the business: $15-16/hour. You don't have to be a genius to do this job. I get to employ a lot of strategy in my job.

    Cons

    Human resources are a nightmare. The company has created a federal government-style labyrinth to protect employees, who need to be fired, from getting fired. This creates a lowest-common-denominator mentality as employees see what their coworkers are getting away with. The very few people who actually care about their job (such as myself) are left with extra work to do from those who won't do work. Also, expect to wait at least a month (closer to two) to get hired.
    This company has nothing but a downward trend concerning pay. A coworker of mine was taking home $2200 every two weeks during the big months before I started. Since I've started, that same coworker is now taking home less than $1300 in big months. As for myself, I now make less than I did before I received my "promotion". And there are a number of merchandisers who now make more than me even though they work fewer hours than I do and have less responsibility.
    Work/life balance is the exact inverse of what you would like to see in a company. The further you go up, the longer you work and the more you realize that the compensation isn't worth your time. Both the district managers I've worked for average working 60-90 hours a work for less than $50,000 per year and neither have taken a vacation of longer than 1-2 days since I've been with the company. With this in mind, I have absolutely no desire to get the next promotion, and unless they change how I'm currently compensated, I'll be asking for a demotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let a promotion/pay raise be an actual promotion/pay raise and not just a giving us a heavier ball and chain.
