Was Merchandiser for 5 years

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group

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

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)

I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than a year

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...
