Not minority friendly. (hard to advance)
Not veteran friendly (hard to advance)

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

    Pros

    - Good job right out of college. You build a strong work ethic because FLNA managers are known for long hours and solid performance.
    - Lead teams after your training
    - Starting salary is decent (only starting salary)
    - Part of Pepsi, so you have several divisions to work in (FLNA, Quaker, Tropiciana, Gatorade, Pepsi, PBG)

    Cons

    - Horrible salary increases. They get you with the starting pay, but after that you can look forward to 1% to 2.5%. 1% if you have mediocre results, 2.5% if you're performing well.
    - Job security. Two waves of layoffs the past 3 years.
    - Several cuts to 401k match for salaried employees, no more share power, etc. Pepsi will be following this path as prices are increasing on its products and it has to start cutting costs.
    - Your direct managers do NOT care about your progression. Don't be fooled. They schedule 1:1's with you, but fail to meet 90% of the time. You meet more with your hourly employees than your boss. Of course they will meet with you all the time to assign you their tasks to perform, but if it comes to your career, it's put to the side
    - Direct managers expect you to get their assigned tasks done the day of telling you about it. No patience. If you don't get it done the current day, expect feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Poor planning on your end doesn't constitute an emergency on my end. So many times I've been asked to complete a task only with the preface that it MUST be done by COB. Give us more notice, breathe in, and relax. You're just making chips.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, complex work, smart co-workers

    Cons

    There is no value in being a long term employee. They fire you when you are over 40.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on career development, not just job execution.
