I had a fantastic time and learned so much. They gave me a lot of responsibility for me to build my skills.

Great

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at PepsiCo

Pros- Competitive Benefits and Compensation packages
- Great training and development programs
- Opportunities
- Culture of Hardwork and constantly striving to beat out the competition

Cons- Work life balance

It is a fast/tough industry to stay competitive in. It demands early mornings as well as long hours. However you have the opportunity to create measurable results that you can be proud of

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to motivate employees

Great company

Bulk Account Representative (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

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

ProsWell balanced beliefs in hard work and family time. Excellent benefits and great people to work with. Most of the management and your coworkers become family. They are always genuinely concerned about your life.

Consthere are not many cons to working for PepsiCo. Just long hours at times, mostly due to holidays.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. This has been one of my favorite employers. I know at times the restructuring of companies hurts. But you have tried to have as little impact on families as possible.

Incredible opportunity for career growth

Executive Assistant (Current Employee)
Purchase, NY

I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWith constant flexing markets and PepsiCo maintaining modern applications to "Run the Show" there was always room to learn just one more thing creating a sense of versatility. In the Administrative role, in order to function you would have to wear many hats and maintain flexibility for success. Very competitive environment. Skills learned and achievements prepare one for any environment.

ConsManagement specific... lack of ability to adhere to core values. The work existed however management failure to acknowledge efforts, stick to work life balance rule. Almost as if "your good at what you do, stay right there", "You are a loyal employee, you are stuck"

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you have a stellar employee. Don't push them out the door based on specific current moments, with lack of consideration towards what was actually done over the years. Serious lack of ability to retain talent with lack of acknowledgement. Not good.

PepsiCo - The company

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
Plano, TX

I worked at PepsiCo as a contractor for less than a year

ProsWorked there years ago in a temporary capacity, and loved the environment. People were friendly, atmosphere pleasant and a beautiful facility.

ConsI wish it was a bit closer to my home. Also it is a very remote location which made going out for lunch difficult, but the grill available to employees made it worth it.

Advice to Senior ManagementI can't address that question since I was in a temporary position.

Good Experience for Unusual Position

Scientific Statistician (Former Employee)
Barrington, IL

I worked at PepsiCo as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThe hiring manager and management above him were really receptive to my advice and analysis. The management style was to my liking. Treated as an adult. Told me what the goal was and let me decide how best to arrive at it.

ConsAs this was my only contract position not sure if it is usual, but as a contract employee definitely was excluded from events. Perhaps this is something, for legal reasons, they are constrained from doing.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would hate to give unsolicited advice as I was there for such a short time. I suppose if PepsiCo was going to continue to employ so many contractors perhaps it could find a way to make them feel more vested in the company.
