    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is a good company if you are at the right location. Very political in nature. If you are in the in crowd you are golden. If you are not apart of the inner circle you might as well be happy in your position or use it as a developing tool.

    Cons

    Senor leadership is all about you kissing the right behind. It's not what you know but rather who likes you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and take notice of the good people in the organization before you lose them. Stop putting all your stock in college new hires and value your workers on the floor doing the work.

    Pros

    the pay is more than adequate that's about it

    Cons

    don't expect to move up very much in company unless your part of the boys club favoritism abounds in this place management treat you like common street urchin never accepting blame foe their faults and passing the buck and undermining their fellow employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get your heads out of the corporate b hole and take responsibility for your actions man up and say something when you think a process is unfair to employees and do not blindly follow the corporate mentality

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

    Pros

    Great products, Great noteriety, fun outings

    Cons

    If you weren't "in" with the right people, you will not continue to move up, regardless of experience or dedication. When in a bullying situation with superiors HR made minimal efforts to remedy the situation and the backlash was so hard to endure that I had to leave the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give everyone a fair shot. Scrutinize managers and make sure they are not taking advantage of their direct reports, while passing their direct reports' work off as their own.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    fast paced environment, exposure to senior leaders and complex business issues. The company is rarely evolving. You can be sure that growth is going to be limited.

    Cons

    Becomes redundant work over time with nowhere to move in career progression. They are not involved in external activities and management is very small in size for the amount of people that work at this facility.

    Pros

    My work week is 4 days on and 3 days off, this gives me lots of time at home

    Cons

    Not paid for as much as I do
    No room to grow within the company unless I am willing to apply at a plant 2-3 hours away.
    They cut hours as they see fit
    Expectations are high, but pestered to work faster.

    Pros

    After 10 years the money can be great if you have a degree. It is also a very high pace career.

    Cons

    Work/life balance does not mean anything to this company. High officials do not know or understand the foundation that makes the company the giant it is.

    Pros

    There are no reasons unless you like to work your balls off for little money.

    Cons

    I work from a side loader and average about 650 cases a day out for 10 to 14 hours a day with a roual route and I only made 42k last year with a class A cdl... that's right I was making $13.14 an hour if you do the math..
