    Pros

    During my time at Pepsi, I've had a pleasant experience. I've been able to learn many things and they were able to work with my school schedule.

    Cons

    Other than the normal wear and tear on my body, it seemed kind of difficult to be promoted. Managers sometimes tend to do whatever it takes to please a customer, sometimes at the expense of their own employees. Now I do believe customer service is key and is the number one priority, but when it is at the expense of your employees and their families, it becomes unnecessary.

    Advice to Management

    Better promotion system. Focus on employees, which are the backbone of the company

    Pros

    Autonomy, benefits, flexibility. In the past I have referred friends to this company but cannot do so anymore. I loved this job before the games of multiple managers looking to jump from intern to senior management started to walk in and out. There is a serious lack of stability. Only the college recruits get a serious look at advancement

    Cons

    Work life balance, inability to advance, continuing to take small benefits and perks from employees

    Advice to Management

    Understand who made you...the little guys. Quit screwing your small stores and catering to the large chains.

    Pros

    Good benefits, community involvement, part of something big. There is plenty of room for growth and to bring growth. Seem to care about surrounding communities.

    Cons

    Understaffed on the CSD plant level, unorganized. Revolving door. Claim to be diversified but then have segregated groups working within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, add more staff and organize. Management could add more staff to take care of the business. Most of the weight is carried on the shoulders of a few.
