I worked at Pepsi MidAmerica

Pros

Great brands and nothing else.

Cons

Private ownership.
Owner and son, (Chairman and President) live in a bubble with no concept of reality on the street. Turnover is astronomical though ownership thinks it is in line. They have no concept of what is "normal" for a company their size. Chairman micro-manages everything nuance of the business never allowing his manager to participate in critical thinking. As an employee, having family is a negative as it is a distraction to working 20+ hours a day. If a family emergency should arise you may find yourself unemployed. Sales and operations do not get paid holidays off but rather have to make up a holiday on the next weekend.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell the business back to PepsiCo and retire in Florida. Do your employees a favor.

    I have been working at Pepsi MidAmerica

    Pros

    The best part about working for Pepsi MidAmerica is the fact that the company is such a well-developed trademark and is admired by most of the other companies. The work is pressureless and the schedule is made by you. You do not have someone breathing over your neck telling you what to do.

    Cons

    The management never lets you know what to do, while getting upset when you do something "that is not in the job description." You determine your own schedule, but they can tell you to travel to different towns to do extra work whenever they feel necessary. Yea

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have comunication with your employees

    I have been working at Pepsi MidAmerica (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay was better than an average 9-5 job. Setting your own hours & working without direct supervision is a plus.

    Cons

    Advice from middle management was to be more of a "dick" to customers. Unable to get customers their orders until days later. Poor equipment, my truck caught on fire while I was driving down the road. Nothing matters other than money, no one cares about anyone on an individual level. Working 12 hrs a day with no overtime simply was not going to cut it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a crap about your employees rather than view them as slaves.
