    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is Good,401K is excellent,free drinks occasionally,they keep you busy

    Cons

    No family time, they arrange your schedule to work every weekend. The last time I had a Saturday off was July 4 due to the plant closing down the 3 times a year it does. The supervisors are afraid to make decisions on there own. I've seen lots of turnover in just the little time I've worked here. It's not a Union company but it's a Union atmosphere..No team effort, your on your own for your whole shift. If your lazy or complainer you'll have it made. The more you do the more they add to you, even if they know it's extremely difficult they'll say "you can handle it" and then get on to you when the task hasn't been completed. Management usually don't like to come out of the office to check on things until the situation is out of hand.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people, from the guy that has just been there a few months to the guy that's been there 30 years. Not everything that is on paper works. Give more training rather than learn as you go, people would be much more likely to want to stay and work extra. Stop working people like your machines, give them a rest, that's why they are always breaking down too!!

    I worked at PepsiCo (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    PepsiCo was a great company to work for. There was plenty of opportunity to let your skills and capability shine. They rewarded hard work and those that went above and beyond the call of duty.

    Cons

    The only thing that I can think of, it's not really a con, is that the company's expectation for their employees stayed really high. This is not necessarily a bad thing because it pushes you beyond your max and makes you a stronger person.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company, really friendly and care about you and your career development. Definitely take the "work hard, play hard" mentality to heart and know how to have fun.

    Cons

    They often throw you into something without giving you a heads-up or guiding you through it. They expect a lot out of their employees which is both flattering but can be frustrating overall.

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Note this review is for Frito Lay Corporate. First off, as an intern, you're given real work and responsibility. The project you work on is important and will actually effect the company. The pay (as an intern) is great too! You're set up

    Cons

    HR is very disorganized and the process to get your background information approved is terrible. Management will tell you in that this is a summer interview, however it's up to you to find out how you stand and your chances in landing a full time job after graduate.

    Advice to Management

    If your intern's goal is coming back full time, make sure to give constant feedback on how they are doing to reach that goal.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern

    Pros

    Company culture is great and they have flexible summer hours. The employees really value interns and you have the chance to meet with some really high level employees. The projects are valuable and a full-time offer is definitely realistic if you do well

    Cons

    Not many cons but HR doesn't help a lot with helping you find a place to live. It can be hard at first to figure out what exactly your purpose is in a company this large
