I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

98% of the people are great to work with. Great corporate values.

Cons

Increasing focus on the stock holder and less focus on the frontline where the work is done. Some of the managers treat everyone as a number.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve frontline conditions and stop taking away their benefits, share power and 401K match to make stock holders happy.

    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 (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 as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are good worker bees employed there, lots of people wanting to do right by the company. The facilities are nice, updated and clean. The open Pepsi fountain machine in the break room is a nice perk. Depending on your manager or team leader, they are interested in your career growth. Onsite cafeteria is very good, nice variety.

    Cons

    Politics are horrible. Time to decision is sometimes counter productive. Bypassing process was the norm. They hold a carrot in front of the contractors with hopes of being hired on. Would recommend to friends that can deal with politics, its not for everyone. Your career grows faster when it benefits the manager above you. (get an ice machine for the soda machine left open all day)
