I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group

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.

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group

    Pros

    Great people! Great brands! Work is what you make of it in a seemingly typical corporate HQ office environment. Most people around here have been here for a long time. Very stable.

    Cons

    The stability of the organization has a downside of allowing people to become entrenched in their jobs and processes. Process and Technological improvement takes some encouragement (and patience.) It also results in fewer opportunities for career advancement, so getting that promotion becomes quite competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since going public, any ownership in the results of the company as a whole has been eliminated for all positions below management. (Stock purchase plans, bonuses, etc., are gone) In light of this fact, policies should be revised to encourage more collaboration, or everyone will eventually be so focused on achieving their personal performance measures that the performance of the company as a whole will suffer. Remember- we can accomplish more together than we can individually.
