This place WAS great before new middle management was set in place. Now it is like a prison and JUST a paycheck.

I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Benefits and perks are good.

Cons

New management is horrible! Blind leading the blind! Average raise is only 2%, even if you show initiative and work your tail off. No room for advancement. Revolving door of employees/managers, constant change leading to utter chaos, no solid direction in any of the departments. Organization, leadership, common sense and "the buck stops here" are NON-existent. Training, what training? It's sink or swim only. If you are a Union member, you are safe, otherwise watch your back! A lot of politics and favoritism. Company morale has been shot dead and buried, with no chance for a rising Phoenix.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Weed out middle management, there are some rotten apples in the barrel. Bring back managers that worked under PBG, before PepsiCo re-took over.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Steady work, fair pay and benefits for the type of work

    Cons

    Sometimes not family friendly with work hours and time off. Work and family life balance is almost non existent for non-management employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your team. Build a great team through support not fear for your job,

    I worked at PepsiCo part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Decent wages.
    -Union.
    -Good Overtime.
    -Good job security once you get into the union.

    Cons

    -Very little supervision. I worked at Frito for half a year, till I was attacked, unprovoked, by a particularly horrible coworker. He ran away from me, and I went straight into my boss' office to report what happened. After a rather pathetic "investigation", they fired both of us. Despite me being the victim, and not fighting back, I was fired for being attacked at work.

    This lack of supervision also extends to their forklift drivers, who will speed around the warehouse, neglect using their horn, and act oblivious to their surroundings. Case in point, this is not a safe place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your jobs! Try to actually listen to what your employees are telling you, and put forth effort into your investigations. I know effort is hard, and there are only so many hours in a day, but you are playing games with people's live here.
