    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company is continuously profitable and bonuses pay out in full every year. Most of this comes from the Rapid Continuous Improvement projects rather than actual growth.

    Some of the bennies are good. They give everyone 2 weeks' vacation front loaded. There's no "earning" then taking it later. You take it in the same year you are earning it, so technically you could take 2 weeks' vacation the first week of January even though you haven't "earned" it all yet. You get 3 weeks at 5 years and 4 weeks at 10 years. The next step is much later, something like 25 years to get the 5th week and it tops out there.

    There are 12 paid holidays. The 401k match is dollar for dollar up to 5%. The pension is gone, but they give you 3% of you pay into your 401k every March instead. This is in addition to the regular weekly match. You are immediately vested in the 401k. There is no wait period for health benefits or anything else.

    Cons

    They've eliminated the Capital Engineering team and put little money into infrastructure now. Benefits used to be much better but now are quite expensive. Management level and above pays about twice as much in premiums for health insurance than hourly workers. It's good for hourly workers since it makes it affordable, but if you are entry-level management, it's quite burdensome.

    It's gotten to the point where people are afraid to go on short term disability (for an operation, etc) for fear their job will be eliminated while they're out. There is a culture of continuous improvement. Whether you're there 5 years or 5 months, you're only as good as the latest thing you've done. It keeps people on their toes, but can lead to a culture of constant fear.
