Learned a ton by being surrounded by elite talent, even if management often failed to allow the professionals to lead.

Pros

Exposure to new ideas, concepts is high, company culture does push for new ideas and is not afraid to take chances. Depending on your department, entrepreneurial, risk taking is possible. Able to work with every top agency, just by picking up the phone.

Cons

Gossipy, great work often goes unrecognized or ignored. Personality driven, at least half the company runs on personality. Upper management does not have great ability as marketers like previous management team, they seem ashamed of selling junk food, overly focused on new, niche categories/products.

Advice to Management

Recognize great work in a public manner, give examples of great work and incentiveize people to behave in that manner. Embrace soda and salty snacks as the core business. Today and for the next 25 years.

    Pros

    Large stable company, great benefits, pay is above average for basic general labor.

    Cons

    Heavy, tedious, labor intensive back breaking work at a sprint pace for 8-12 hours a day. Work every single weekend. Having all your work thoroughly examined by sales reps only to complain no matter how well you do. Being constantly talked down to by grumpy store managers who acts like you're trespassing when attempting to service the accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please, please consider the frontline employee's. They try their best but are not given the time and tools they need to do things properly. Give your employee's a weekend off every few months, that goes a long way. Tell them they are doing a good job. Positive reinforcement instead of threatening discipline constantly.

    Ever-changing environment, always learning, growing and moving forward which is great for me but maybe not for others.
