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 Management

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

  1. 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 Management

    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.


  2. Great Place to get some experience....Not a Company to retire from

    Pros

    Great benefits (health, dental, vision and 401k)
    Company Car
    Good people that have been around awhile
    A Company you really have to mess up at several times to be terminated

    Cons

    Upper management not really concerned about customers wants; just #'s and displays
    Antiquated Co. not really in-tune with technology
    A service company not concerned with service

    Advice to Management

    Take a really good look @ what your competition is doing and try to keep up
    Get out into the field and ask some Questions
