    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

    Decent pay and benefits. After a few months your able to get full pay and benifits.

    Cons

    No work life balence at all. We have family dus that your forced to work on the weekend so your family can come And watch you work. Plant manageran joan katatumba is horrible to work with. Almost impossible to move up in this company unless you have a four year degree. The jobs are repetitive and Pepsi has no interest in training their workers or giving them opportunities to become better operators. Long hours and long work weeks expect to work 50 to 90 hours a week depending on the week and you won't know what your working until the day before in many cases or when you will get off other then maxing your hours for that day which is sixteen hours.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your employees and find the ones who want to learn and progress and help them do it. There is a lot of talent being wasted. Stop forcing people to work the weekends so much we have families we would like to spend time with.

    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
