    On-boarding process went very well

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

    Pros

    Being new, I don't know too much yet. The on-boarding process was fairly smooth. They did a good job with the orientation and my manager had everything ready to go to get me started day 1. The perks are great. Free oatmeal in the morning at the Plaza in Chicago, cheap on-site health club, etc.

    Cons

    Everything is VERY corporate. There is a set way to do everything. Being new, it has been challenging to learn the right process and who the right people are to talk to. Some people take for granted that a newcomer may not know all the right procedures. LOTS of bizarre acronyms are used. They even joke about it in the orientation.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    PepsiCo PAMPERS their interns. We were taken on numerous field trips, and got to have weekly lunches with senior leaders of the company. We were given real projects that were stimulating and had the opportunity to connect with many of the employees.

    Cons

    Many of the employees at Pepsi are extremely busy. As an intern it was sometimes easy to be overlooked or pushed off when other more pressing issues arose.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and willing to explain how things work. I always felt like I was contributing to the company with my work.

    Cons

    It's a fast paced work place, so you have to keep up. The management is always busy, so they are sometimes not as atentative to your needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more feedback from the work I was doing would have been nice.

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    This internship was very beneficial for many reasons. PepsiCo invests heavily into their internship program because they truly see it as a "10-Week Interview". Each of the interns is assigned a real project that consumes much of the work time throughout the summer, but also has the opportunity to assist and learn day-to-day tasks throughout many different departments. Interns have the opportunity to travel across the country to see several different aspects of the company from corporate settings to manufacturing. Additionally, there are plenty of opportunities for exposure to high level executives and the full-time hire prospects seem to be high.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large, it is hard to regulate the experiences that each intern has. While PepsiCo does an excellent job of placing you where you seem to be most interested, there is still a lot of variability between managers, and settings. A corporate setting is a much different experience than one would get in the field. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but a student should know where they want to end up before going into an interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on communication within the program. Especially throughout the school year leading into the summer, as interns, we were often left in the dark. It would also have been nice to have some assistance in finding housing, particularly for those in New York locations where it proved extremely difficult to find reasonable housing for such a short term.
