    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You will work with the best and brightest, you have constant opportunities to train and improve yourself, if you enjoy change and setting your own path they give you that flexibility, ....you will be held to high standards and will need to demonstrate your ability to deliver results.

    Cons

    The pace of change and accountability, sometimes without the right resources, can be challenging. Resulting in a need to personally find a balance between your work and personal life.

    Great Internship Opportunity at Frito-Lay HQ

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

    Pros

    YOU HAVE REAL IMPACT ON THE BUSINESS - As a PepsiCo intern at Frito-Lay Headquarters, I was able to gain perspective on the entire business on a national level. The projects I worked on were mainly ad-hoc, but I was able to build them into existing systems and see the direct impacts of my contributions in a short period of time. My work has been passed on and has continued to be used in national performance reporting efforts.

    EXPOSURE TO CORPORATE CULTURE - PepsiCo (and especially Frito-Lay) does a good job of exposing interns to the company culture and its leaders through an executive speaker series, networking events, and product giveaways. From my experiences with employees, retention is very high; many people I worked with had been working for the company 20+ years. Additionally, corporate resource groups and activities such as kickball added a sense of camaraderie that reinforced the team-oriented atmosphere.

    STRONG NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES - As an intern, I had the opportunity to work with a large group of people that I developed relationships with over the course of my experience. PepsiCo's employees are generally eager to help one another, and I learned to be approachable while also taking initiative. Events such as the national intern report-out at the end of the internship solidified my ability to meet and properly network with people from across the business, which I found to be very rewarding.

    I highly recommend Frito-Lay's internship program to anyone interested, as I found it to be a rewarding experience.

    Cons

    MANAGER DEFINES YOUR EXPERIENCE - The internship experience as a whole is a positive one; however, your overall impact is dependent on the manager you receive. Fortunately, I had an awesome manager who went out of her way to make sure I got the most out of my experience and that I was noticed for the work I did. Other interns I talked to did not have the same experience.

    NO FULL-TIME OFFER - When I participated in this internship I was a sophomore in college, so I was not considered for a full-time offer as they were reserved for graduating seniors. I have not received any offers since, despite being highly praised for my work and having a strong network built up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to grow the internship program and invest in the young talent that exists there. As a large company quick changes are difficult, but I believe that the company's success lies in its ability to attract, develop, AND RETAIN interns and young professionals.

    Pros

    This is a stable company with lots of growth. The company has 22 products that generate one billion dollars per year.

    Cons

    Some stewards of the company can be difficult to work with, but I guess that is at almost every large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always do you job and them some, this way when you leave to go home for the day, there are no guilt.
