    Pros

    If you want more then job but a career Frito-Lay offers oppertunties for all. Must have your own goals and be able to go in the direction, forcasts and goals the team is going.
    Not afraid to ask for advice or help and be able to help other team members.
    Pay and comp. is high compared to like industries.
    (Retired after 30 years and have no regrets)

    Cons

    Must not be afraid of hard work or long hours.
    If you do not enjoy working with people or as a team Frito-Lay would not be for you.
    Must learn to balance work with family. (sometimes its best to shut it down and go home.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has always been superior compared to other companies. In the past sometimes you forget to hit the overload button.

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Excellent sales training, people were given true responsibility for account base and not very much micro-management. Work/life balance was discussed as a montra, but the workload basically overpowered any balance. However, very flexible with work from home schedule.

    Cons

    You must find a sponsor at the HQ. No employee without sponsorship at the HQ gets very far relative to promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although Indra is CEO, the diversity at PepsiCo is more talk than implementation. PepsiCo Senior Leadership should committ to sponsoring a more diverse range of their employee base. They should each find someone and steer that person's career.
