Great experience, but the place is a sweat shop.

Former Employee - Associate Brand Manager in Plano, TX
Former Employee - Associate Brand Manager in Plano, TX

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

Pros

Great brands and the people that you will get to work with are some of the brightest minds in our field. Job security is also a plus - they rarely have layoffs that impact much of the marketing department and when they do have cuts, it's usually at the upper levels.

Cons

It's a win at all costs type of place and that means being willing to put in 12 hour workdays as junior marketer. Unfortunately, that is the norm and not the exception.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you evaluate your employees you preach the rhetoric of people-side objectives being 50% of your review and business-side objectives being the other 50%. How about looking at employees work/life balance through the same progressive lens... you have the opportunity to so much more than a sweatshop.

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

    Pros

    Wages are decent and raises used to be. Benefits are ok but dwindling. Plenty of overtime for those that require it.

    Cons

    Work life balance is non existent. Forced overtime and holidays at the last minute do not allow for any type of life outside work. Management treats employees like they are not wanted. Any legitimate issues are met with political circle talk. Constant change of management makes it impossible to have a working relationship with your supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are pushing us away. Remember that people are a kpm.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Be careful regarding the days and hours that you are promised will be your schedule.

    Pros

    Large company, solid, nearly recession proof, great products, industry leader in 23 separate categories.

    Cons

    Hours, days, no room for ANY individual needs/issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to communicate directly with associates.
