    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Surrounded by talented and motivated people. I've worked several jobs in my life and PepsiCo is by far the best. They really care about their employees and the opportunities are there for the taking. You will have to be dedicated and work hard to achieve what you want in this company, but that is what makes success at PepsiCo feel so good. I have never been more excited to go to work or felt more at home in any other company than I do at PepsiCo.

    Cons

    The company is so big that it is sometimes easy to get lost in the maze of businesses, divisions, brands, and their various levels of management, but this is common in any large organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the development of lower level employees. I have seen many move on to become phenomenon managers because of the coaching and development they were given early in their career at PepsiCo.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A very resourceful company full of bright people that offered a significant international exposure and abroad working opportunities for professional development since very early in a working career

    Cons

    Extreme rapid and constant business changes were part of the day-to-day routine, and for anyone in managerial positions, to be able to match this fast pace really meant it a personal challenge

    Advice to Management

    With high indexes of personnel turnover and also personnel internally changing jobs, some kind of anchors were needed in order to compensate for that sense of instability affecting bottlers' operations

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are really good, and the company is very open about everything that's going on inside of the production and the warehouse facility. Some of the most motivated people I've ever worked with here. Managers and coworkers are all really friendly they provide meals for their employees on numerous occasions. Most people there are good friends and treat each other like family

    Cons

    The health insurance deductible could be lower. But by no means is a very high deductible

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what y'all are doing y'all are definitely one of the best management team I've worked for so far

    Pros

    This company has great benefits and great opportunity to move up into different avenues. Also great pay plus yearly raises.

    Cons

    Only down side is that most departments don't have set schedules, it's a start time but you only Leave when the jobs done... But that's not really a down fall.

    Advice to Management

    Take a little more time to get to know the employees... And also have there backs during tough situations with customers.

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

    Pros

    The sales internship is a very cross-functional internship where you get exposure to all departments and you are given a real business problem and the creative space, resources, support and knowledge to come up with a solution which will usually earn a dollar amount for the company!

    Cons

    There aren't any cons to the internship. The internship program goes unparalleled. PepsiCo treats their interns like royalty and Hr is there every step of the way providing support and asking for feedback on your experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work creating such an amazing culture and making employees feel like their apart of a huge family!

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

    Pros

    The biggest pro would be, customer interactions. The ability to build lasting relations and grow within the retain business.

    Cons

    One of the only cons i can think of would be the long hours. Another would be the knowledge base of some upper management is far from great.

    Advice to Management

    Build on the successes that have already been made. Try to balance a good relationship with employees while building the bottom line.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern

    Pros

    This internship was extremely hands-on. From day 1, my boss gave me a great deal of responsibility and trusted me with a lot of our Independent Business Sector. We spent the first few weeks on-boarding by shadowing various sales reps, supervisors, drivers, etc. and then from there I was able to take that knowledge and begin to work on my own project. I loved the concept of having my own project and presenting it to management at the end of the summer because it gave me goals to strive for and tangible results of my hard work at the end. All in all, the people that I was surrounded by made my internship experience the best I could imagine. I got to work hand in hand with the unit manager, so I definitely felt like more of a full time employee than just a summer intern.

    Cons

    Very early mornings, but you definitely get used to it! The on-boarding takes a few weeks, so your project is limited to just a few weeks, but an exciting few weeks to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Giving daily feedback, words of encouragement, or even just checking in on the intern allows he or she to feel so much more comfortable in the office and willing to take risks in order to better the business. What made my experience so great was the people around me and the fact that they took the time to truly get to know me and make sure that I was learning every step of the way.
