    I have been working at Pepsi Bottling full-time

    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

    Pros

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

    I have been working at Pepsi Bottling full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - BIG name company BIG name brands - great exposure to higher ups - out on the field all day instead of being stuck in an office - great opportunities to go to major league sporting events - great employees - SOME managers know what they are doing/are organized

    Cons

    - Because it is so big, it can be very easy to get lost in it all - Needs more structure/training - Could be more organized - Manager roles are not exactly what you had in mind - Can be a lot more physical work than you expect - Compensation is not very good especially compared to similar companies - Hard to move up/around

    Advice to Management

    Really train the people coming in and make some serious changes to the "managerial" roles. For being such a large company, there should be a lot more structure and organization. I can't say this enough!! I know that they are just now starting to implement a rotational position but up until this point, movement has been very difficult to come by. Hopefully this master plan works.
