Pros

Great environment to spend most of your waking hours in. Good pay, challenging work and good support from technical staff.

Cons

Mid level management lacks experience to lead. They seem to be too afraid of the upper management to try to think outside the box to help their team move forward.

No opinion of CEO

    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

    Pros: Benefits, Decent Pay, Family-like environment. Hard work=rewards

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours, walmart, weekend work, old people getting in your way all day, An idea of a pay raise is adding more stores onto you, rude old customers, walmart, kills your back and knees, hard-to-deal-with backrooms and backroom people, slow gray-haired people, walmart

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More freedom given to merchandisers, fire the worthless employees.
