    I worked at Pepsi Bottling full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and compensation. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Dealing with upper management that does not have a clue as to how the real world works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge people for how they perform not whether the have a piece of paper hanging on the wall. Not all college grads are capable individuals.

    I worked at Pepsi Bottling full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was my second job out of college and I learned a significant amount about how to be a good manager. I'm grateful for the time I spent there and had many mentors to show for it.

    Cons

    I had numerous promotions in my time with the company and my only feedback would be at the time I left there was a consolidation that made it impossible to stay. That is not a reflection on the company just a fact of big business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue growing and mentoring your managers. I know many people today that have gone on to very successful careers due to the training they gained from time with Pepsi. This is a great organization!

    Pros

    The ability to work and interact with customers was essential to my customer service experience. Also, working within PepsiCo was a team oriented job.

    Cons

    PepsiCo required every employee to live and operate by the "customers are always right" motto and sometimes, the customers were completely wrong.

    I have been working at Pepsi Bottling as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation was on par for experience. The leadership gave great direction even in the most complicated of situations.

    Cons

    Being a contractor I was not given administrator rights. This made setting up the new laptops and desktops a little more complicated. However I found many ways to overcome this issue.
