I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
I liked the people that I worked with. Every company has a level of bureaucracy, but the plant manager and staff were good people and meant well.
When I worked there, I appreciated being given a level of creative latitude through TPM processes and later on, high performance work systems concepts. You do not get a lot of creative latitude in most places.
Great training programs to develop team members.
HR worked with team members to improve policies to include vacation days and emergency days.
Overall positive experience for me as an operator and a lead.Cons
-At the time, most people worked long hours and rarely had a day off. I have heard that this has been improved since then.
-It has been awhile, so I cannot comment well on other potential opportunities.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep up the inclusive culture and supportive management staff. The personal development works (it has helped me go far in my career).RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
