Pros

The people are great, friendly, and will make you feel welcome as soon as you come in. The company has a lot of growth potential and you will be promoted based on ability, not seniority. There are some young managers and VP's because of this. The hours are also reasonable.

Cons

Plano isn't the best city to work in when you're young, but its a good place to raise a family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You've cultivated a very open and welcoming atmosphere where people can look forward to going to work. I enjoyed almost every day.

    The company is profitable, but at what cost to the employees?

    Pros

    The company is profitable and the future for flavored beverages is great. If you work in R&D, sales, and/or marketing, this is a great place to work. If you are in IT, Finance/Accounting, Supply Chain, HR, and/or Operations, there are probably better places to find employment.

    Cons

    Many employees consistently work 12-15 hours a day. Internals are regularly promoted, but don't expect any extra pay for the extra responsibilities you take on; the comp strategy is tight. Management does a poor job of communicating and cascading goals/objectives, leaving employees confused at best. The company is sneaky about finding ways to "eliminate" and/or outsource jobs to get rid of employees that are no longer wanted/needed. There is a focus on "crushing costs," but in many cases this is at the expense of the company's human capital; departments are so thin, they're anorexic, and this "lean people" strategy is not sustainable long-term. As you might expect, turnover is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is clearly making money hand-over-fist, so why not share the wealth with a bonus structure for all employees? And, why try to cut back on employee benefits by scaling back the number of holidays from 12 to 10 days? These actions send a negative message to your employees; keep an eye on your turnover - I expect it will go up substantially if these trends continue. People do have other opportunities, and your really good people will leave.

    Pros

    Length of work days depend on when you get done with the work, not when you hit 8 hours. It's incredibly to get overtime, in fact I'd be surprised if you didn't.

    Cons

    Depending on the day and the amount of orders per store, some days may take almost 12 hours to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    decrease load by sending help for employees that have lots of orders and/or only order what is necessary to decrease unnecessary backstock.
