Pros

Trend spotters - Sr. management has been good at identifying acquisition targets such as Quaker Oats, Gatorade, Naked Juice, etc to go after key trends in the market.

Cons

In Purchase there's some amount of face time required and I saw people regularly work late. Also, the purchase office isn't Manhattan commuter friendly

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go beyond packaging changes & formula changes to create more innovative products, not just tweaks of current one's.

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Large organization with lots of opportunity to advance. Enough room to advance within your organization w/o having to wait behind someone. You get a lot of responsibility quickly and you dictate how successful you are by how hard you are willing to work.

    Cons

    Field assignments do not generate as many opportunities for performance as HQ assignments. At time we operate like a company on the brink of poverty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work to simplify sales to drive performance versus trying to sell to every niche market. Make communication more frequent and to the point and cut all the flowery language to make a bad situation smell good.

    Pros

    You do make some great friends here.

    Cons

    Long hours for little pay, holidays are a day to spend with family and friends, not slinging chips at a WalMart all day, upper management plays "favorites."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason most your management team can't take this place for more than 3 years...listen to them! You need to realize there is a balance between family life and work life and not every single holiday should be controlled by Frito. If a DC is a revolving door for employees and management is consistently running routes, this generally means there are larger issues in the organization & you should take a good, long look at the Zone running that city.
