I have been working at PepsiCo

Pros

PepsiCo is a great company to work for. Long hours, but the compensation is worth it. I would recommend this company to anyone with supply chain experience,

Cons

Long hours, Long hours Long hours. I also work many weekends. Some of the supervisory positions tend to feel like babysitting

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Very good benefits
    Starting pay for extras is above average
    Nationally known brand (sponsor of the Super Bowl halftime show)

    Cons

    Continuously being asked to do more, even with the economy down.
    Plan numbers completely unreasonable, especially in the winter time
    Trucks are junk, several breakdowns.
    Being forced product that wasn't ordered and made to push it.
    The work/life balance is too tilted to the work side.
    Nothing close to the company it was 10 years ago. Way too corporate, number-driven and not about taking care of customers and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many employees feel they can not take sick days or any personal days. Do we really need so much slow-selling product jammed into accounts that do less than $400 a week? More price hikes coming even with many people bypassing our products for generics? Planograms are good for a framework but should not be treated as gospel because what sells in St Louis might not sell the same as something in Springfield. Demographics are different in those cities and therefore, so are the tastes of people and that means we need planograms that are decided by districts, not zones.

    Perfered Quaker Oats over PepsiCo

    I worked at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Salary - when compared to competition
    Ability to gain knowledge
    Atmosphere (Quaker Oats prior to PepsiCo purchase)
    Benefits package
    Retirement package

    Cons

    Too political. Before the purchase of Quaker Oats by PepsiCo, the environment was productive and friendly. Employees were respected and empowered to do their jobs. It seems once everyone was under the PEPSICO umbrella, this atmosphere changed for the worse. The company became extremely political, very "game play" and "who you know" oriented. Since I was not one for game play, I was let go after 17 years of service. I must say that I enjoyed working for Quaker Oats, but I cannot say the same about PepsiCo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote in perfomance and knowledge.
    Listen to the employees (they might know more than you)
