    Pros

    PepsiCo has a fantastic culture. The company cares about its employees and cares about giving back to the community. On top of that, they are a savvy business organization with fantastic upper-level leadership.

    Cons

    The salary is usually at a 70% rate- in that it's better than 70% of comparable jobs but worse than the top 30% salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an investment in training your entry level Business Information Solutions associates. The interns were wonderfully treated, but the new full timers were shortchanged.

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Top CGP that looks good on the resume.
    Many volunteer events to give back.
    After 5 years of employment, you receive and extra week of vacation.
    Get a chance to work with new systems like SAP and WebEx.
    Sr. Management "cooks" breakfast for employees once a year. (Kinda neat.)
    Co-workers have a generally pleasant demeanor.
    Summer and winter hours are a plus. (Who can't use extra time off?)
    Many Employee Groups to join for networking or support.
    Tuition reimbursement.
    You can wear jeans to work everyday.

    Cons

    No work life balance depending on your department.
    Serious silo effect. If you hire into one department be prepared to stay.
    Departments are very click-ish. Most don't know what departments are on other floors.
    Talent that is brought in, is under valued and not used to their potential. Current employees that have obtained MBAs or MAs are still overlooked for promotions even with proven results.
    You must be good at brown-nosing to get ahead in this place.
    Annual raises are very small (barely cover cost of living) or not at all unless you are sales or management.
    If you come up with an idea for process improvement, be ready to go through months of red tape before it might be approved for a test.
    Many supervisors and managers pass projects from sr. management to their employees to complete. Then take the credit with no thanks to those who actually did the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the company promotes work life balance, then you should stand by that statement. Utilize the talent you have before you lose them. (That doesn't mean give them more of the same work.)
    All managers should take refreshers on how to be effective, supportive and how to use appropriate communication skills.
