    Good pay with benefits

    RSR Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) Richmond, VA

    ProsGreat pay with great benefits. There is plenty of room for growth if you push yourself hard enough. There is opportunity to make a large sum of money because of the commissioned pay scale.

    ConsThe hours are long and not ideal if you have a family. You are basically married to your designated routes with no hope for a personal life if you have a wife and children.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Strong focus on people and development, intense culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPepsiCo provides lots of opportunities for personal and professional development. It's a truly global company where you get to interact with people around the world on a regular basis. You will get pushed and challenged here -it's never boring

    ConsIt's a hard-driving culture. It's not competitive with others on your team in a negative way, but it can be high pressure and intense. it's not a place to work if you like to constantly hear what a great job you're doing - it's more "that's fine, but what have you done for me lately?"

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicating in such a huge global environment is tough, but we need to keep working on clear communication at multiple levels.

    Sales District Leader

    Sales District Leader (Former Employee) Nampa, ID

    ProsStable Wall street performance based Company. If you are new and out of college, good company to leap frog from.

    ConsPoor managing skills of local Unit manager. Not a good company for long term employees. Company likes to save money by hiring new college Grads with out experience and replace veterans. Good company for five years and out the door.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company was built by seasoned and long term employees. Sometimes it would be great to see a few of them stay around after you make your employee changes.
