I have been working at PepsiCo

Pros

Not many, steady paycheck with avgerage benefits. The product is in high demand so it sells itself despite the young college grads pretending to be management.

Cons

work/life balance, Chinese overtime should be banned. 70hrs a week which 30 hours will be for between $5 and $10 an hour , not worth it. It will destory a family.

    Pros

    Hourly employees are very knowledgeable, great learning experience

    Cons

    Politics, Politics, Politics...

    This place is the Mickey Mouse club. Some senior leaders are either completely incompetent or flex their schedules to the point that they are never seen. The hourly employees are the true experts that keep this place moving in a forward direction. Managers with ZERO life / work experience fresh out of college dominate the ranks and take credit for the good their teams do. Moreover, these folks usually make it to leadership roles and carry their supreme ignorance with them...

    Bottom line, if you are a true leader, this is not the place for you. They want people that can be "molded" into mousketeers...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set an example to front line managers by following through. Be visible to team members...be honest. Practice diversity and inclusion, rather than use this tactic as window dressing...

    The HR department (with the exception of one person) should take time to learn the various jobs and environments that are living and breathing on each shift so they can get a better idea of what really is happening. They are completely oblivious, and operate within an extremely bureaucratic platform.

    At the end of the day, favorable metrics are not the measuring stick....stop being satisfied with poor performance and harmony.

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Great entry-level leadership experience for someone right out of college
    Big company name and leadership training pulls some weight at other companies
    Extremely high manager turnover makes for a fast track for promotions

    Cons

    Talked about if you work less than 10 hours a day
    Primary job is fire-fighting; no time to work on real projects to improve the business
    Your career and development are at best a secondary consideration
    They move managers between departments and shifts without notice or discussion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Something needs to be done to slow down the turnover rate and to show the resources you value them as employees.
