    Outstanding work environment

    Talent Acquisition Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsThe people at this company are top shelf. Not only do I work with the best and brightest but I enjoy them from a personal standpoint. This is a place for people that are high-energy and want to win. The company continues to evolve from a food and beverage standpoint which is exciting to see. Salary is extremely fair compared to the rest of the market.

    ConsWorkload is huge but that's what you sign up for when joining the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to evolve from a healthy food and beverage offering.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fantastic company to work for!

    Talent Acquisition (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsGreat flexibility, competitive salary, fun corporate culture, lots of collaboration, reasonable career growth, also very innovative - not just with the product development but also within each function's workstream

    ConsWhile not a con for everyone, PepsiCo is a very fast paced work environment, which results in constant process changes and new technology to learn on a constant basis. This can be a huge hurdle for certain types of personalities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun Place to Work

    Talent Acquisition (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsCollaborative work environment, management helps with career growth by delegating project work and teaming you up with a mentor. Work life balance and employee resource groups are viewed as a must by all employees and management. Starbucks and Gym on site at FLNA HQ.

    ConsLong hours at times, Cafeteria food - bland and cost is too high, building needs a remodel.

    In house salon and fitness center

    Not the same company it was 5 years ago.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsGreat people. Flexibility to work from home.

    ConsLong hours. Hard to get ahead without an advanced degree. Unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just talk about work life balance. Make it a reality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    PepsiCo is a very results oriented company, but there are considerable differences between the different divisions.

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsReasonable compensation and benefits. Work with talented group of people. Most managers take seriously developing their people. Those who get results are rewarded.

    ConsTalk of work-life balance is not uniformly adhered to. It is very contingent on division and/or manager. Expectations for participating in external charitable causes are very high and a key part of employee's performance appraisal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop paying lip service to work-life balance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    BIS, the technology division of PepsiCo

    Senior IT Analyst (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsIf you have a technological niche, you have job security.
    The work-life balance exists for family emergencies and health issues.

    ConsLack of direction in the BIS division of PepsiCo leaves many feeling like they are spinning their wheels.
    Uncertain future as more BIS jobs are being outsourced.
    Benefits have steadily declined over the last 5 years PepsiCo wide and it appears that trend will continue.
    The company used to be very employee centric. Since Indra Nooyi took over the focus has changed to cutting costs where ever possible so double digit growth can be maintained.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA happy employee is a more productive employee. Leadership has completely lost sight of this or has chosen to ignore it to save money. If you want to retain a skilled workforce, the employer must keep its employees happy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No Work/Life balance in IT.

    Enterprise Database Services (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsCompetitive Benefits. 401K matching. good salary. There is room for move horizontally within the company and seems to be easy. Its a great place to get in, get alot of experience and get out. Free give aways in certain buildings(Free soda if in Pepsi building, Free Chips if in Frito-lay Building, Free Oatmeal if in Quaker Oats, etc).

    ConsThere is a lot of conflict within the teams in IT. The culture is very cancerous and not conducive to collaboration. Middle Management constantly fights and throws other teams under the bus. Work life balance is hit or miss depending on what team you were on.

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