Approves of CEO

I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Iconic brands that brings instant credibility with retail customers. Company is always looking for ways to stay on the cutting edge and ahead of the competition both in products, technology, and value added service to their customers.

Cons

They restructure every 2 years so the security level isn't good. PepsiCo Foodservice just bought 80% of the Pepsi bottlers to have more control over distribution but the integration of the bottlers and foodservice division has made this a rough uncertain transition for the employees

Advice to Management

Stay grounded with your front line sales employees--they are the true ears to the organization to what is really happening in the field.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Manufacturing Plants -Typically stable employment -Opportunity to work in various departments (quality, warehousing, traffic, etc....). -The CEO is a rock star. I wish her honest style of managment was utilized in the manufacturing plants. -It is an excellent place for college grads wanting to enter an industrial environment.

    Cons

    -Unfortunately politics can play a bigger role than performance. Site leadership team members can be appointed without having the background or business sense for the job. Nepotism and the "buddy system" are common in manufacturing plants. Perception can be a bigger indicator of your career movement than performance. -Work Life Balance can be a challenge!

    Advice to Management

    Regional VPs/Management need to look at all plant accounts, not just a bottomline number. When a plant makes sixty thousand in parts and has poor performance in production, that should be a clue. HR needs to demonstrate more support of frontline managers.
