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

Pros

Great career growth opportunities - all management levels encourage and support internal movement to improve and expand employee knowledge, skills, and experience.
Excellent work/life balance - flex hours and efficient use of resources.
Improvement culture - value-added change, unwillingness to continue any status quo leads to motivated and engaged employees.
Communication highly advanced - broad-based and global collaboration, candor and trust are standards, they actually walk the talk, in my direct experience and by comparison working elsewhere.
I enjoyed growing my career here. Not all companies operate equally, this one is at a higher level than most.

Cons

Focus on social skill development provides advantage to extroverted personalities, depriving introverted performers from contributing, often leaving them under-appreciated.
Global company bureaucracy, difficult aligning the many diverse divisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep striving to improve and keep listening to employees, banish complacency and negativity. Reward and value technical proficiency along with soft social skill development.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Huge company, full benefits, congenial atmosphere, steady work

    Cons

    WS facility, being across the street from the RJ Reynolds Tobacco factory, has that factory mentality. Many long-time employees started in the local factories, and there families worked in factories all their careers, so it's in the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that your long-time supervisors & managers are hindering significant process improvement in the name of maintaining their status quo. Duh!

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance is a focal point. Excellent culture, talented and hard working teams, team focus. Career mobility and great opportunities, especially for young managers. Values are instilled in every aspect of the business and there is always something interesting going on in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Salary and overall compensation is low. The job required mobility every 2-3 years in order to promote, sometimes mediocre mid/senior level managers. Heavy sales and operations focus with less of a priority on other divisions of the business. Difficult to communicate across different divisions (eg. Quaker, Gatorade, Frito Lay) and limited mobility between the different consumer product groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to manage mid-level managers more effectively.
