    Former Employee - Packer in Irving, TX

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    the pay was one of the best things and being able to grow with the people who worked there. at one point the rewards and recognition was supper had you feeling very appreciated for the work being done.

    Cons

    new management changed the work ethics all around..very lil recognition and unfriendly environment grew unbearable. work became strictly business not a home away from home anymore even after 12hours of hard labor..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the PepsiCo values are still in affect so please use all of them not just the ones that make management look good. the company wouldn't be what it was if it weren't for the employees who has for decades got them there.

    Former Employee - Marketing Intern in Plano, TX

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are fantastic and willing to help regardless of their position. Highly collaborative culture and matrix organization means that people interaction is the key to success. Environment is fun and entertaining. Employee resource groups abound and your people engagement is just as important as your business success.

    Cons

    Tough place for introverts given the nature of the collaborations. Despite being dependent on sharing, technological and software systems do not support culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing technological tools to improve collaborative efficiencies. Also consider designing specific workspaces for creative collaboration and ideation as well as solitude and more cerebral individual processing.

    Pros

    The people were great. That is about the only thing that was great about it.

    Cons

    Pepsi is not people driven like it used to be. Now it is driven by the desire to outsource jobs.

    Pros

    Great Place to work, Great Work Life balance, competitve pay

    Cons

    Hard to know where you stand if you are not one of the selected few to promote. People are chosen to follow a certain career path and performance is not necessarily valued unless you are one of the fortunate people pre-selected to be developed.

    Pros

    Incredible global company w/ huge depth of experience, opportunities for advancement, and ability to explore different areas of the company throughout your career.

    Cons

    Due to the ever-changing 'rotational' nature of positions at PepsiCo, there are some issues w/ continuity / knowledge transfer but that is a trade-off they appear comfortable with.
