    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group (More than a year)

    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!!

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

    Pros

    I like the physical work of being a loader at the warehouse but I feel we're over worker and under paid .... great insurance but that's it

    Cons

    The cons are the work sucks and management really doesn't do a very good job of making my job more efficient and there is a lot of favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Raise the hourly rate and make the job more desirable and find a way to compensate the guys who are willing to do the next mans job or fire them

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company activities. And well that's it.

    Cons

    No growth. No advancement. You are salary with a time card. Not sure why they don't just say you're hourly. Overtime is limited. Micromanagement is on overload. If you are looking for a fun place to work as a job. This is it. If you want better pay and more opportunities to advance so that you can support a family, buy a house and car and contribute the max of your 401k. This is not it!

    Advice to Management

    Management classes should be held quarterly if not monthly.

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time

    Pros

    People are nice. This is more of a place to start your career or end it. It's not necessarily a good place for mid-career professionals due to limited advancement

    Cons

    More than other companies, it matters most who you know. Face-time is critical and fitting in is even more important. If you work outside of the corporate office, then the environment is very much a boys club. Management can be very fake and they do not always give credit to the people who did the actual work.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent and play favorites less

    Pros

    The job and work schedule. The pay is decent. Being on your own during the work day. Off on weekends

    Cons

    The pay. No employee involvement in anything. Always negative never any positive remarks most of the time. The employees who do a great job are treated the same as employees who get written up all the time

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better.

    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.
