Pros

The compensation was based on the amount of product sold to the stores in the territory.
The benefit package was great!

Cons

A typical day for them consisted on trying to visit 32 account whith most of them merchandised by yourself. Pepsi, and Coke provided their account managers with 15 stores at the most. Also, most of the merchandising in the route had to be done by the account manager as Dr. Pepper/ Snapple will give a merchandiser 15 stores in a day. Impossibleto do!!! The competitors normally will give their merchandisers 5 or 6 stores daily. So the account manager had issues with store managers everyday regarding this matter. Typical day will start you at 6:00 AM. until you whenever or you stopped yourself. Realistically, for what the position calls for which is selling and merchandising stores such as big box stores and chain supermarkets it is a daunting task to complete 32 account ina day. an average big box store takes 2 to 3 hours to merchandise. Ina typical 8 hour day that amounts to 3 or four stores a day.

Advice to Management

None. The upper management knows the numbers game. They know that keeping up a partial team running each branch nationwide saves them money in expenses ranging from capital goods to personnel. This savings translate into money for the stockholders who are being rewarded with the stronghanded style of management the company currently upholds.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Fair compensation
    - Experience in uncertainty
    - If you make it, transfers allowed in 12mo

    Cons

    - Inexperienced MGMT, seems like a small circle was promoted to the top too fast
    - Lacking Balance - work/life, work load among peers or groups, long/short term objectives
    - Personal/Career Development - you are on your own to learn, develop, and grow

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the trends in Org Behavior and people management - it's better to have talent WANT to work for more than a paycheck. Good people are leaving in staggering numbers and I don't see the trend ending any time soon.
