    I worked at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Good pay for performance system and nice colleagues. Your work is very self managed and lots of independence in your schedule.

    Cons

    Not much chance for mobility. RSR position can have too many write-ups due to sometimes almost unmanageable high stales and missed targets for sales goals. Company does not live by its promise of tuition assistance. Managers are left to decide whether you can be approved for this benefit. HR department does not care if you have been improperly denied these privileges. So watch out if you are a life long learner. You only get the opportunity for further education when you are earmarked for promotion.

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility.
    Great support.
    Loads of opportunities.
    Good money.
    Company van with petrol (for social use too).
    Looks great on CV.
    Head office visits very fun and informative.

    Cons

    Long hours (you will be knackered all week).
    Very sales focused (cold calling in person).
    Sometimes the management can be out of touch with what the interns are doing.
    Some staff on lower levels can get a bit annoyed with looking after interns (and maybe jealous of how well they are treated).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep this internship going, but make sure the managers on all levels know what the interns are doing.
