Former Employee - Sales Representative in Erie, PA

I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Supportive environment, in tuned to challenges faced by being the lone woman in a male field. Lots of advancement opportunity if you are willing to work for it.

Cons

There was definitely a small town mentality at the location I worked in. May not be true company wide, but it was a very very small minded town. Issues with Sexual Harrasment

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

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits, comfortable working environment, work life balance is there with some positions but not all. It's overall a great place to work!

    Cons

    Overtime in this role won't exist for very much longer. Can be stressful at times, and they can put alot on your plate on the sales side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human Resources. With the recent takeover from PepsiCo they no longer care to preserve employees who have put in their time if they don't have a college degree. Well, they won't force you out but you shouldn't think too far ahead about moving up. They place too much emphasis on can this person fill the next two steps, instead of the canidate is the absolute best person for the job. With the concern PepsiCo places on hitting sales numbers and cutting costs due to revenue trending down, I think they need to rethink the mindset of HR and Employee Development. Does it make sense to watch overtime and cut location costs, but then turn around and send someone to Pittsburgh for a week to train since they were hired from the outside and need to learn the position? Need to take a better look at the internal canidates more seriously for managment roles. A manager/leader that your frontline employees respect and respnd to, is one that has done everything they have before, and knows the day to day struggles. How can someone effectiely lead a group of individuals when they have never preformed those tasks themselves? Considering leaving the company because of this HR/PepsiCo mindest.

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Pay structure is good; benefits are good, too.

    Cons

    Everything else....work-life balance (there isn't one during the work week), upper management is disconnected from the ground level work and has no idea how to truly improve the work place environment (RVPs & CEOs, etc.)...time off is also a major issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people not machines!
