    A wonderful learning experience

    Seasonal Merchandiser (Former Employee) Nashville, TN

    ProsThe ability to work and interact with customers was essential to my customer service experience. Also, working within PepsiCo was a team oriented job.

    ConsPepsiCo required every employee to live and operate by the "customers are always right" motto and sometimes, the customers were completely wrong.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Current Warehouse Employee

    Laborer (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsPotential for earnings is good if you are "one of the guys".

    ConsBeing female in a warehouse, you and your work get over looked. It's a "good old boys network". It's not what you know, it's who you know!

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvance people based on knowledge and work ethic. Create a system to RECOGNIZE whose actually adding the value, not who's taking credit for it. There are a lot of credit grabbers in this company. I'm shocked! Also, when an employee emails a senior human resource manager when there isn't one at the location where you work, that person should at least reply. Ridiculous! Do I have to contact corporate to get information?

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    In good company

    Merchandiser (Former Employee) Sacramento, CA

    ProsThe pros of working for PBG were decent wage, benefits and a supportive team base.

    Different Divisions Have Different Work Environment

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Louisville, KY

    Prosexcellent benefits, excellent perks with the job, a lot of positive people just trying to make it day to day. training could us to help on the bottler side. as an outside sales rep you do not get a fell for the office environment.

    Consyour personal time is no longer yours. management is not always the best communicator. I went from foodservice to the bottle side and it was everything I heard. Too much stress not enough time not enough positive feed back.

    Advice to Senior Managementcommunication is key. My particular manager needed help in that department. He definitely improved the year I was working with him but it still was not up to par.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good for experience, Management is disconnected from the front line employees.

    Reset Specialist (Former Employee) Modesto, CA

    ProsDecent pay
     Decent benefits
    Good coworkers
    Given the tools and training to do your job
    Well known company brand

    ConsManagement who is disconnected from the front line employees
    Work/life balance is awful
    Very political
    No room to advance unless you are someones friend/relative
    Not paid for most of your overtime, but expected to work it anyway

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that upper management/supervisors aren't who are merchandising/selling/delivering your product, it's your front line employees. Supervisors are inept at best.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a really good experience and I am thankful for I have gained during my contract here.

    Technical Support Analyst (Current Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsCompensation was on par for experience. The leadership gave great direction even in the most complicated of situations.

    ConsBeing a contractor I was not given administrator rights. This made setting up the new laptops and desktops a little more complicated. However I found many ways to overcome this issue.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
