    It's not always the company, but the whiners that work there.

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

    Pros

    Great Pay
    Great Benefits
    "Freedom" work environment
    Fun building great friendships
    Cheap or Free uniform (shoes)

    Cons

    Holidays and weekends are tough.
    Big push on numbers
    High turnover because of people with bad work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personally get involved with the push weeks and quarter close weeks. RSR's are happy to make as much as they can but the extra support when the store says something different then what Frito is telling us is important. The biggest week I ever did on a 24' box truck was 35k and we had such a push to help the store hit their rebate. All that was missing was the direct store level to direct local district manager communication. It would make us all get along better.

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

    Pros

    Great development opportunities. Leadership in the industry on many levels. Loved the independence within guidelines that I had in all roles I had with the company.

    Cons

    Difficult time managing work/life balance because of demands on time. Worked on average 50-65 hours per week. Was always thinking about work, even when at home with family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop strong work/life balance initiatives to improve quality of life for District Sales Leaders. I know there are things in the works on this, but job was definitely overwhelming from a work/life balance perspective.
