Pros

exciting brands and products, employees are passionate about company brands, many fun events planned for employees and their families

Cons

Advice to ManagementAdvice

talk to your employees respectfully and show them your appreciation for their day to day contributions...recognize those who have gone above and beyond without leadership support

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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.
