Pros

Being part of the beverage industry you could be very creative in your marketing/merchandising with retailers in how to sell your product.

Cons

Senior Leadership took care of their own group of people, and if you weren't part of that group you could not get promoted. Very tactical about how they ran the business, rather than strategic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach. Don't spend so much time and energy giving parking spots up front in the garage to yourselves and focus on how to grow the business.

    Pros

    Growing company, great benefits, jobs all over the country, overtime, flexible schedule if needed,

    Cons

    The pay is lower compared to other companies. The Soda industry is nonstop go which may be tough for some to make it in. Not a company that values education, a lot of the managers never went to college where as pepsi and coke have college educated Managers. Getting a promotion can be hard, you have to be local in most cases. Also getting the "internal" job site is almost impossible for any lower level employee. Most employee in decent positions come from other companies. There is no pensions or great retirement, only 401k....So get your experience and go work for a better Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start getting ways to recognize all your employee's, that action thing is BS...Need better 360 reviews. Also have a internal site that works. If someone wants a promotion it shouldn't be hard to get a interview or noticed....Start you grow your talent from within, some employees do have a passion for the company.

    Good growth and career progression opportunities, but lean resources and lacking in strong leadership/management.

    Pros

    Good growth and career progression opportunities, nice perks, fun products. Many opportunities to gain experience in different areas of the business.

    Cons

    Poor management/leadership communication, people and resources are stretched too thin, work/life balance not a priority, sales results valued above integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people, listen to subordinates and respect ideas enough to make changes. Admit mistakes and correct them rather than trying to cover your losses. Support the team by providing adequate resources (including hiring additional head count where needed to drive the business). Focus on career development in a way that ensures success (step-by-step progression).
