great learning experience but organization lacks direction

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at PepsiCo full-time

ProsHaving PepsiCo on your resume
Ability to learn about processes and systems if proactive
Great amenities
Inclusive culture
fun perks
True work/life balance

ConsOrganization has too many layers of management which causes poor communication between divisions. Too many middle managers execute initiatives properly.
Lack of accountability amongst middle management
Only way to increase salary significantly is to leave and come back
Since 2008 economy has weakened premium brands (Quaker & Gatorade)
Middle management will slow growth by discouraging acquisition of additional responsibility
Large disparity in talent amongst peers
Will often promote on tenure over acumen

Advice to Senior ManagementDecision makers are afraid to actually make decisions because of yearly workforce reduction. The company needs to become more lean to foster sustainable growth. There is also too much overlap amongst job responsibilities. Organization needs to make sure that employees have ability to learn other portions of the business to create value. Make sure you weed out poor managers that create unhappy counter-cultures.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
