    Pros

    The wages are ok.
    It's a job if you need one.

    Cons

    Poor benefits unless you are a manager but even then not great.
    Rapid Continuous Improvement and IT teams out of control and out of touch.
    Technology poor
    Blatant disregard of policies at corporate office..
    No room for growth.
    Checkmark management - a long as it can be twisted to be called a success its good enough.
    Favoritism displayed blatantly
    Not a career shop.

    Advice to Management

    To the top execs: open your eyes and ears to the reality. Talk to non-management and foster a good dialog. It's going to be a tough road to get the trust built.
    To mid level managers: learn how to lead and follow the policies. Less about your ego, your bonus and concentrate on business please.
    To front line managers: Keep supporting your employees, we appreciate what you are trying to do. Look outside the company for mentors and leadership training. Most of you will not find it internally.
    Not management bit to frontline employees: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Your dedication and getting the job done despite management ailments keep this company alive.

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

    Pros

    This company has a bad name due to some bad seeds within the company. If they could weed these guys out it would be a great company to work for.

    Dr Pepper Snapple Group does have some very great people employed for them. I work under a wonder boss. I wouldn't change that at all.

    Cons

    Dr Pepper is a good Company to work for but.. They have management issues.
    The drivers work extremely hard to be very under paid. No i'm not a driver but a huge chunk of this company running properly is the product getting delivered. So when you pay your drivers basically nothing and management treats them terribly your product doesn't get delivered.

    When you interview someone tell them the TRUTH about the position the are hiring on for. Myself and several other people I have confided in have all felt they weren't fully informed about the job or things were said that weren't possible.
    People need to be fully informed of the position they are taking on so they don't leave you high and dry.

    Every company has a bad seed. This plant bad seed could be the down fall of this location.
    The really Big Guys in this company have no clue about whats going on at these little plant locations and until they can evolve them self they will continue to loose employees due to management.

    Account Mangers care for themselves and getting that commissions. They treat the drivers like poop and do not care that a customer did not want a certain product.

    District Mangers are most arrogant aholes who just care about the money they are making.

    If you aren't someone with a predigest title you aren't crap and they won't bother with you.
    I am considered a "Part Time" employee but I do more than one job that should qualify as Full time. And quite frankly I do both jobs wonderfully and get decent pay for one of the jobs. And only once have I gotten semi decent compensations for the other job I tend to.

    Advice to Management

    -Weed out the sexes people.
    -Hold the people higher up accountable.
    -Get people within management who enforce rules that are so highly stressed in the interviewing process.
    -Weed out the high paid no cares about the "little people" employees.
    - Proper TRAINING
    - HR Department sweet time in getting people on.
    - Remove the liars.
    - Some people enforce power they DON'T have in this company.
    -When you hire someone on for one job don't give them several others that they won't get compensation for.
    - Monitor employees better

    Pros

    Benefits/Work Life Balance. Unfortunately, the one con I'm going to list needs to be on your mind if you are going to apply. The future is bleak for many employees.

    Cons

    The RCI program has been great for the company financially for many years, now that most of the low hanging fruit is picked, the RCI program is aiming for savings by chopping heads and consolidating. Be aware that if you are trying to get hired in to a team based department, such as marketing/finance/rmm etc, your job will be axed or consolidated in the future at some point.

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flex schedule and one work from home day

    Cons

    Trying to move up within the organization. They only promote who they know. Only marketing and HR gets the recognition. I have started looking for another job outside the organization. BU's do not partner up to solve discrepancies or issues. They are a lot of fake people here. The work is mundane. When they have employee breakout sessions or kick offs only marketing is recognized for their efforts as if everyone else as a catalyst do not contribute.

    Advice to Management

    It takes a village to raise a child. It take everyone to make DPSG a successful organization. It would be nice if the CEO took time to have a lunch with the regular people.

    Pros

    Weekly Pay and benefits were good. We got to purchase drinks at discounted price, sometimes...

    Cons

    FAVORITISM!! Some managers showed lots of favoritism to certain employers. They will fire you for no reason so they can bring people in who they want to work for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employers RIGHT!!

    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.
