Current Employee - Senior Director Procurement in Somers, NY

I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

High quality, very loyal workforce. You will learn a lot. Many, many opportunities to add value. Great relationships with external partners and vendors. Company is a leader in areas of sustainability and diversity. Performance with Purpose is the right overarching vision statement.

Cons

Lost its "work hard, play hard" reputation. Huge disconnect with how sr executives value contributions made by a quality work force. Core issue is that sr executive leaders are not able to prioritize thus not able to focus employee's accountabilities and work load. Everything is a priority thus it is a challenge to do the right work the right way. For many years, I use to say I love my job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be wary of new sr executives who come in and say the existing work force is not competent. Employee base has always been open to change and new ideas; you taught us that with your investment in diversity training so many years ago. New leadership cannot be disrespectful of the contributions made by legacy employees. When that happens the ROI on the new executive is significantly reduced because there is no trust between the foundational employee base and their new leader.

    Pros

    Good pay, thats about it. You will work for it .

    Cons

    Work comes before your personal life. Days off don`t matter. Forget being sick or having a death in the family. Overworked to hit ridiculous numbers. Management will side with customer instead of RSR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with employees. Let them do their jobs themselves. Stop lying to them

    Pros

    Big company, a safe company, many things to learn. Great distribution system and a very well known brand.

    Very political like any other large company, at times focuses on the wrong things, one of the worst life balances, very slow career progression

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of those that you see potential in.
