    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Many career opportunities, training is readily available, especially online, there are some really good managers who care about their employees and try to create career paths.

    Cons

    Poor pay, unprofessional management team. All the high-end employees from the days of Cadbury have been laid off and replaced with people from the bottler side of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement an employee survey and look at the results to affect real change in the company

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Fun environment and great recognition for top performers as well. There was also fun incentives that motivated people to perform.

    Cons

    Poor Mid-level managers. They lack leadership skills. It seemed like the friends of the boss or those who had been there the longest got the promotion. That does not always mean they are best for the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to those who go and get degrees and want to progress within the company before they leave, like I did.

    Former Employee - Account Sales Manager in Somerset, KY (US)

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The money is there, you just have to go and earn it. Good salesmen will make it and move up. I loved the fact that I got to go about my day without constant supervision over my shoulder. This job offered me an excellent sales experience, and I highly recommend it for driven, motivated salesmen.

    Cons

    The company is still young and has its growing pains. Because of this, upper management seems to make some questionable decisions. One that I don't understand is how they let the competitors distribute their flagship brand Dr Pepper. I understand that they have a contract that was in place before the company came to, and I understand that the cost would be high to compensate the extra volume, but the brand doesn't receive it's justice. Pepsi and Coke give DP little to no love compared to their own flagship. Not a great long term business decision...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions that will move the company forward, not hinder it.
