    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule is about the only good thing

    Cons

    Upper management does not defend middle management even after they were the ones to tell someone to do something. Leave their people out to dry. Constant turmoil between all employees and management eggs it on. It's entertainment for them. Safety concerns as well as management does not enforce company policies.

    Advice to Management

    Start being a manager instead of everyone's friend. Can't be both ways. Must attempt to do you job.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fun promotions and events to be involved in. Their top brands such as Snapple are growing.

    Cons

    Negative culture. Terrible management styles with no strategic direction. Management blames employees for everything but doesn't give them the tools to succeed. Poor training. Poor career development.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people more than you care about your bonus and your perception to your boss. Give your people tools to succeed.

    Pros

    Global name recognition on resume, that's all.

    Cons

    Very unorganized in all aspects, especially key accts in non-Dr Pepper regions. Blind leading the blind. Key accts likes to think big, but usually falls flat on ad pricing and promotions. So many times, an ad is supposed to happen and then you find out at store level the pricing is wrong or the item never made it in the ad. Then, key accts blames the buyer. The only reliable key acct activity is Snapple or core five brands because that's usually national.

    Advice to Management

    Advice is to Exec level; get rid of all your left-over SE Atlantic management at branch and region level if they aren't cutting it. They are the problem because they are old school. Do like CCE and PBG did in the early 2000s. Start flushing the dead weight good ole boy network for more progressive, corporate minded people with bigger goals and aspirations. These guys are killing you as they wait out their 10-15 years until retirement.
