    Was Merchandiser for 5 years

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork at your own pace, very easy work, do not really have a lot of supervisor looking over your shoulder

    ConsSome of the other employees were not great workers and did not put in a lot of effort

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be stricter rules so routes are not getting so messed up and larger consequences to employees who do not follow rules. Look to Pepsi their Merchandisers and Sales Reps work together and work more efficient

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Fantastic and fun place to work with some great people, you just need to look out for the bad apples (managers).

    IT Manager (Former Employee) Plano, TX (US)

    ProsThe people that work there are extremely talented and smart
    The company has a great culture and fun working environment - work hard/play hard
    Discounted soft drinks!!

    ConsSome of the managers lack adequate people skills...i.e - don't know how to treat people and appreciate/recognize hard work or hard efforts by the employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that a "manager of others" has the skills interact appropriately with people who report to them. DPSG is not a consulting firm, even though some former consulting people that work there think that it is...
