    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are fantastic.
    Upper level management from VP to CEO get it and are very approachable.
    Flexible work hours are good.
    Work one day each week at home.

    Cons

    Middle management and Directors will sometimes exhibit a "knee" jerk response to a critical issue.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the trees and let people do their job. You don't always have the best idea.

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    DPSG fought to keep health insurance affordable, corporate building is green, on site gym, covered parking.

    Cons

    DPSG didn't provide a merit increase to meet cost of living increase since 2015. DFW has become a hot spot but DPSG hasn't kept up with cost of living. They claim diversity but is doesn't happen. Ask about halal, vegetarian, vegan or kosher at company sponsored event and your are left with nothing. My team asked Sr. VP to allow us to provide feedback. We were told no. Not going to happen. We we not allow access to training materials because we were not at the management appropriate levels.

    Advice to Management

    You work and exist in a new century. The old way of doing things does not appeal to your current workers, Mr. Young.

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some amazing people that work at the company and it's a great place to learn. The company focuses a lot on efficiency and is working hard to reduce costs and increase profits - a skill set that can be taken to any other job and has been a great asset.

    Cons

    The culture varies greatly depending on what department you are in. Some departments are very unified and encouraging, others are very dysfunctional and cut-throat. The company as a whole still seems somewhat disorganized after the spin-off from Cadbury.

    Advice to Management

    Work on training upper management with inter-personal relations. It appears upper management would rather not be involved in the "lower-level" issues but a culture of honor and respect starts from the top. People work harder when they feel valued and respected and I believe management could do a better job of this.

    Pros

    You can make many business contacts as you will be interacting with many customers. The health benefits are good compared to other companies.

    Cons

    If you have a family then this job is not for you. You will be working seven days per week and will put in many 15 hour days. Upper management does not appreciate the commitment that is required and always bottom line blame is placed on your staff

    Advice to Management

    Allow your mid level managers to run their department and trust them.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire more people, and work to get balance family life
