I have been working at PepsiCo full-time

Pros

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

Cons

Organization 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 Management

Decision 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.
