    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX

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

    Pros

    When I worked there at the beginning, the benefits and culture were friendly and impressive. Corporate office was always doing things to boost morale. Location was convenient. Nice campus overall. I found people in other departments to be friendlier than the ones in my own.

    Cons

    Bad parking lot, always a struggle to get a decent space, overcrowding, BAD upper management in HR area. They started doing the 5S program which felt more like a sterile prison environment. Poor leadership and very disappointed in the behavior of "leaders" in our area. I was the victim of workplace bullying, took it to HR and no one did anything. They care more about recruiting than reducing workplace hostility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to stop the power plays and the nepotism. Listen to your employees. When they come to you about an issue that concerns them, dont pretend to care, actually care and do something to reach out to them.

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

    Pros

    The employees that do the job on a daily basis are the hardest working people in the beverage industry. It's the best feeling in the world to get a win once in a while with very little resources to compete. If you enjoy being the underdog, your on the right place

    Cons

    Terrible management culture. Job threatened on a daily basis. Pay is way below the industry standard compared to the competition. Absolutely zero work/life balance. Most of the management are people who were fired from the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time practicing what you preach, meaning developing your talent internally. If a manager couldn't hack it at the competition with better pay and more resources, maybe there's a reason for it. Why keep opening your checkbook for these type of managers. Obviously the company is going backwards rather than foreword. Until this changes we will always be the industry standard of how not to conduct business.

    Horrible Company

    Former Employee - Merchandiser  in  San Diego, CA

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hours and pay are some of the good things. Going to get some work in specially during holidays. Pay is good for entry level

    Cons

    Horrible management and they don't care about your life outside of the job. Be prepared to work like a dog and be treated like one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just get your act together and get things situated

    Current Employee - Corporate Liaison  in  Plano, TX
    Current Employee - Corporate Liaison in Plano, TX

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    No Micromanaging in any department I worked in. Flexible Schedule - Not Required to be in at a certain time or leave at a certain time per job title.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move around in the company and it is even more difficult to get a promotion. High Stress environment for those who work in departments that focus on a bottom line or have to streamline business processes to achieve outrageous budget goals. A very departmentalized and disengaged corporate structure where departments like Sales, Marketing and Supply Chain have zero communication and zero standardized business processes which tie in all essential business decision makers. One of the worst Corporate Cultures I have ever been involved in and I have worked for great Fortune 100 companies that squash DPSG's organizationl culture and structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. You say you want a solid corporate culture and that you value your employees by wanting them to succeed and achieve their goals, but it does note exist. The disconnect starts with the EVP down to Directors who only focus on Reports and budgets and "literally," have no contact with management and empoyees.

    Instead of criticizing our work for all the minor stuff all the time. Try telling employees great work, keep it up. Have a employee appreciation day.

    Pros

    Great benefits, company vehicle, decent compensation if the hours were normal

    Cons

    Petty drama, long hours, office politics, upper management doesn't value hard work - lets some get away with breaking company policies while being extremely strick on the hardest workers. No time off around holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees for working hard and don't feed into the petty drama. Don't be so quick to judge or fire somebody based on one side of the story.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Most supervisors work pretty hard and long hours. The company is constantly looking for ways to improve.

    Cons

    Evening shift is 4pm to whenever the production line has been restocked (2-4AM-ish). The company rarely promotes from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add a 3rd shift so you can cut back on the overtime you always complain about.
