    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you work hard, the potential for growth and wealth is great.

    Cons

    You will not receive proper support from management when you need assistance. If you run into a roadblock from a confrontational customer you will be viewed as the bad guy without question. There is a serious lack of communication with the management and the front line. The hours are long and grueling as well. I work 50 hours at the least most weeks and longer during big weeks like Superbowl and fourth of July.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better attention to the needs of the people who work under you. Spend more time in the market with your employees so you are in touch with what is going on. Not to micromanage but to have a handle on what it takes to get the job done.

    Former Intern - Intern in New York, NY
    Former Intern - Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working on real projects, being able to interact with PepsiCo leadership, hit the ground running with project work. Great opportunity to work at a large international food company.

    Cons

    Fast pace, unforgiving work environment. Hit the ground running with project work- expected to be experienced and be on top of everything from the start. Lack of mentoring support from internship manager. Unrealistic expectations of an intern. Areas of research are very limited based on the company's current or future projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide mentoring information/ hold sessions for intern managers. Seek honest feedback from interns, after job offers have been decided, not before. How can an intern be expected to give completely honest feedback if their opinions are not kept anonymous and are asked for before job offers are decided on?
