Cons

The plant is located in a urban enviorment and I had to drive quite aways to get to work.The company runs 24 hours a day seven days a week and they have alot of different schedules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should come out on the floor and talk to the employees one on one.I advise this philosophy with any company management.

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

    Pros

    There is a lot of autonomy and ability to mold your organization.

    Cons

    There is poor communication with HQ and the Field. There is a lot of "old school" management still in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some round tables in the field with salaried employees.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only pro is that I can put that I worked for a fortune 50 company on my résumé

    Cons

    We'll first off I started right out of college and was hired into the DSLD role and was told things that turned out not to be true at all. First off I was told I was going to run a route for 3 months to learn the business, that's fine I embraced the experience until after 4 months of running routes they told me that I will most likely be running a route for 12-13 months. Then when I asked for a timetable for my training it could not be told to me. They were basically short on route sales people so used me and continued on planning to use me because they thought they could. I was working 65-70 hour weeks at a minimum, it was the worst experience I've ever had at a job yet. The turnover is massive because the employees are treated extremely poorly.
