    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Given plenty of opportunity to grow career-wise, as long as you're okay with moving around
    - Company values promoting from within
    - Supportive managers
    - Huge company with a product that sells itself

    Cons

    - Each location differs at least moderately on how they work/demands on employees/supportive managers. This is common in most companies, but becomes a bit of a problem in a company that expects you to move around often
    - Although managers are supportive, I feel that I am on HR's back burner the majority of the time
    - Can be easy to get caught up in the bureaucracy of such a large company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your front-line employees when it comes to demanding more from them. Value them, as they are the building blocks of the company.

    Pros

    I'm just starting in the company but the orientation I went through was very well put together. I really appreciated the lunch and chat with existing employees to get useful hints and general recommendations for new hires. Everyone was very welcoming and really open to the thousand questions a new hire can ask. I was extremely encouraged by my manager to make the time to meet with all team members and even those outside our group right away to help ease my transition and to make sure I had a wealth of resources to reach out to. All of these points have made my start here excellent and makes me even more excited to jump into it all!

    Cons

    Again, I don't have much exerpience yet but what I've grasped thus far is that it's going to take asking a lot of questions to help make sure I understand everything. There are processes for some things, but not everything and some sections are better than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing as of yet.

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Ability to make decisions at every level. The business operates with an entrepreneurial mentality which leads to innovation.

    Cons

    At times the corporation changes direction extremely fast. Quick to create a new operating model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more in work-life balance. The corporation is fast paced and employees need more flexibility to refresh.
