    Pros

    Productive, fun company with an understanding management. Flexible hours if needed. Staff is kind and helpful. This company lets you train and learn other aspects of the company.

    Cons

    Unable to move up and grow, there are limited opportunities for someone in my field. I find it difficult to get coverage for time off.

    Pros

    Loved the in house clinic. People were great. Very diverse. Lots of involvement in fundraising and helping community. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    Move a little slow. If more technology used there would be more efficiency in process. Some willing to listen to new ideas some very adamant about doing it the way we have always done it.

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

    Pros

    There is always room for growth and personal improvement. It's a safe and constructive workplace, almost everyone is friendly. A national company so facility to facility transferring is fairly simple. Typically management is fair.

    Cons

    Often short staffed so some limitations affect desired time off and time to devote to other projects. There seems to be a rift between certain departments. Not everyone has the same team attitude. Management expects a lot out of its employees and often without giving directions to go towards.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to pay comparable to your competitors. Have management discuss the direction they want you to go in and avoid miscommunication between different levels of management.

    Pros

    If you like free drinks, pretty good pay (once you get your own route; they could probably stand to pay their helper drivers more), and working out everyday throwing soda then this job is perfect. Most of the customers are easy to work with and only ask that you do your part. We had new trucks and trailers when I left and pretty new equipment as well. The benefits were great for me as a single person. The managers are all pretty good guys who will help when they can. All they expect is you to put in some effort and they'll give you effort back.

    Cons

    Sometimes very long days (12-14 hrs). Depending on the week it could be a 70 hr week doing a very tough job. The communication between the delivery side and the sales side needs to be improved. Having a bad salesperson can add hours to your day. I don't know if it's changed but the routing was done in another state and many times created problems with how the routes were run.

    Advice to Management

    Fix problems with routing by communicating better with the people who know the routes, the drivers. A computer program can't plan well if you don't give it all the facts so talk with the guys on the ground and actually use their input. Have salespeople be more accountable. If they don't do a decent job it makes it that much harder for the delivery guys. Other than that, good job.

    Pros

    The company is growing and beginning to become a significant competitor in the beverage world from a market share perspective. The allied brands are helping the company maintain a competitive advantage while setting up a sustainable business model. While the industry typically has slim margins, the allied brands have helped the portfolio with the margin issue.

    Cons

    Confusing PTO structure - the archaic combination of vacation and sick time puts a damper on your total vacation time. It seems silly that a company of this size would only give two weeks starting vacation when it's competition is offering 4 weeks of PTO for a similar role. Also, no option to purchase stock, or even beverages at a discount.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at figuring out how to attract millennials with a PTO policy. Figure out how to let employees purchase beverages or other branded items at a discount. Increase your employee ownership through both of these things to retain your talent.
