    When you are more focused on metrics and less on your customer, bad PR

    Pros

    They offer employee sales and free t-shirts. At lunch they do offer free drinks, and discounted energy drinks are available at all times via vending machines. Some of the employees are dedicated to creating positive growth fort his company, but it is still in its infant state.

    Cons

    Management has no clue what it takes to run their operations. Having worked in several departments at DPSG and for several different managers, only one of the past 8 managers do I hold respect for. Management staff is very unprofessional when it comes to finding a solution to a problem; Here is a hint - when you yell, people become defensive. When you make a mistake and blame others, you lose respect. This has a lot to do with the style and interaction between the management staff - always in conflict. I am currently looking for an open position within the immediate area at another company because of the issues the management staff is facing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the current management staff and hire fresh faces: Non-DPSG employees and have them build their teams from scratch. Chances are, you will be rebuilding your staff in full sooner than later as it is either way. Too Many people are wanting to leave because of the attitude of management.

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Operations team knew what they were doing
    Sales team was compentent, but not overachieving
    The company's culture was next to none, very employee friendly

    Cons

    Managment does not listen to continuous improvement suggestions, even projects that would save the company multi millions of dollars across the entire company. Internal controls in some commercial areas was lacking. Company does not seem to have direction in that each department is not focused on one common goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the function leaders when they advise what projects need to be worked on at the lowest level of the organization. IT is not a strong function at the company.

    No opinion of CEO
