PepsiCo – Why Work For Us?

We are driven to win. Outperforming ourselves is a rush. We’re strong individualists who thrive on collaboration. To us, it’s all about respect – for one another’s unique traits, backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. Our teams reflect the diversity of our consumers and our communities, breaking down barriers, shattering glass ceilings and winning awards. Our Employee Resource Groups are proof-positive that inclusion is a way of life at PepsiCo.

And get this. We actually care about you as a person. Not just the "you" that shows up to work every day. But the "you" that goes home to your loved ones and out into your community. We get that greatness spreads. That at some point work skills and life lessons merge, and at that point everyone’s expectations are blown out of the water. It’s called personal satisfaction. Only everyone wins.

 

We've hired 300,000 entrepreneurs, dreamers, doers, rainmakers and shakers. Every minute of every day on the job, we encourage them to be the best at whatever they’re doing and whoever they are. Stretch assignments, early responsibility, job rotations and awesome mentors are just part of what makes the real world at PepsiCo an unbeatable training ground. Want proof? Eighty percent of our executive team was promoted from within.

 

Blaze new trails. Never settle for second best. Succeed together, celebrate and do something bigger. That’s what performing with purpose is all about.

Around the world, we’re committed to giving people the taste they crave and the nutrition they need. We dream globally and act locally-constantly innovating to sustain our planet, our people, our communities and our business practices. New markets mean new ways of doing business, and new ways of addressing health concerns, cultural differences and environmental challenges. Every day is an adventure, and an opportunity for personal and professional growth.

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Interviews started with HR screen, then I came in a few weeks later and had 2 one hour interviews back to back with some senior leaders on the team. There were a few positions open, but they had about 15 candidates alone for that day. The first guy only sat with me for 30 minutes and just had me waiting around. I didn't have CPG experience, but I had a strong finance and leadership background. I don't think he was interested at all in me and clearly showed that. The next interviewer was very nice and down to earth and we chatted back and forth the whole hour
