Pros

Benefits are good they start from day 1

Work not distributed equally.
Do not pay time and a half, and have little respect for employees.

Pay better and show a little bit more respect for the employees that actually keep the company afloat

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Compensation is above average for the work
    -Self-directed learning allows motivated employees to grow their knowledge in the job areas they want, but needs to be kept in check and standardized
    -See a strong desire from management to improve, but does not have a cohesive plan for it.

    Cons

    -Very far behind the times, just implementing 5S. While I'm not a fan of "flavor of the month" type projects in general, the company seems stuck back in the early 90s and just starting to move forward with putting an emphasis on statistical process control and continuous improvement.
    -Unions - standardized pay scales based entirely on time worked instead of pay for performance only gentrifies the employees and does not promote continuous improvement and excellence.
    -Lack of standardized procedures or training both in-plant and across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training - STANDARDIZE IT! I understand that the company is relatively new, having only been around for 3 years, but the culture is too old and needs to move faster. Utilize the strengths of each of the small companies and bottlers acquired over the years to improve each plant.

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -There's probably at least one good District Manager there (Manages a group of Account Managers)

    -Weekends and Holidays off

    Cons

    -10-12 hour work days
    -Pay is no that great (Relief Acct Mgr: 33k/yr, Acct Mgr: 33k-55k/yr
    -Under constant pressure to sell products to stores that have little interest in those products, though that's pretty standard for most sales jobs.
