    Pros

    Pepsi is a very fast paced environment. The company has great benefits and recent technology upgrades make managing easier. The work day has different challenges every day that keeps it interesting.

    Cons

    The technology makes it difficult to not work when not at the office since the business runs seven days a week.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to put more focus on training and development of its employees. Especially in the technology area.

    Pros

    Pepsi is a great place to work if you can handle the random abuse, and lack of consistency with coworkers and management

    Cons

    Crappy hours, great pay, okay benefits. Some days are better than others. You definitely look forward to your days off

    Advice to Management

    Worry about the little people. They give your job purpose and on a bad day, they could really make your life hard

    Pros

    Excellent pay, super benefits, Union job

    Cons

    Hours are horrible, No days ever the same. No days off. They even blow traditional 3 day weekends by having you work Saturday. In 7 years I have had ONE 3 day weekend.
    Only a 6 holidays off. Christmas Day, New Years Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving day.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing would help


  8. Great place to start your career.

    Great leadership, accountability and freedom to execute the business. Financial rewards tied to team and individual performance.

    Cons

    Pepsico acquisition and leadership limits ability to grow. LRB categories in decline due to health concerns.
