I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent opportunity to learn and know different business operations. The Company in general is so interested in employees well being. Challenging.

Cons

I think that for women is still difficult to get promotions or a raise for the same work as male colleagues do.
Low compensation compared with the market.
The company likes to laid off people every year for savings instead of exploring other options, in the other hand they hire so much people using outsourcing companies.

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

    Pros

    Working in a truly Global company offers opportunity to cross any boundary (culture, language, location, work style) and expand your personal knowledge, influence and impact.

    PepsiCo offers top-tier benefits, salary, work/life balance and continues to offer great opportunities

    Amazing people that truly care for you and offers a chance to build a community of not only co-workers, but lasting friendships.

    Cons

    Any large corporation is going to have challenges, from pricing challenges, to cost-cutting measures. From business re-orgs to downsizings. These things happen, and they can be hard to understand. Overall, the company emerges stronger through each challenge

    Work/Life balance is real, but it is difficult to obtain. You have to be your own champion and know how to hold your ground on what is important to you. Ask yourself what is truly important to you, and then work to achieve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has gotten better over the last few years of operating with transparency in sharing information with employees.

    The strength of this company truly rests in the strong bench of employees as well as the products, don't discount that employees will feel more comfortable, and perform higher, when there are no big "secrets" but operating in honesty & transparency.

    Sometimes there are things that cannot be shared, but acknowledging them with an honest statement that you can't comment is better than ignoring the 'elephant in the room'

    -Paid very well even though I was just a summer scholar
    - Good place to work

    Cons

    -No direct relationship with PepsiCo personell, though the research was fully funded by PepsiCo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -You should recruit those who you funded in the research program when the scholars apply to your company
