    Worth The Commute.......

    Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) Purchase, NY

    ProsGreat brands, great/smart talented employee base, strategically focused, proven winner with a drive for results.

    ConsSometimes bites off more than it can chew. Never a dull moment. Need time to recharge the battery at times. But the good news is that I feel i do have the flexibility to do so.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet's decide on the most important initiatives annually versus all the initiatives. Better focus and flawless execution on fewer projects and initiatives.

    No clear way to make decisions. Looking just to competitors and not to internal research. Afraid to try new things.

    MBA Intern (Former Employee) Purchase, NY

    ProsSecure job. Nice people. Concert perks.

    ConsNo innovation just followership. Relies too much on consultants for direction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop paying attention to $$$ consultants or industry reports. Take a hard look at real numbers and how things are operating. You've got the talent but give them freedom to work their magic.

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

    Laid back engineering work

    Incredible opportunity for career growth

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee) Purchase, NY

    ProsWith constant flexing markets and PepsiCo maintaining modern applications to "Run the Show" there was always room to learn just one more thing creating a sense of versatility. In the Administrative role, in order to function you would have to wear many hats and maintain flexibility for success. Very competitive environment. Skills learned and achievements prepare one for any environment.

    ConsManagement specific... lack of ability to adhere to core values. The work existed however management failure to acknowledge efforts, stick to work life balance rule. Almost as if "your good at what you do, stay right there", "You are a loyal employee, you are stuck"

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you have a stellar employee. Don't push them out the door based on specific current moments, with lack of consideration towards what was actually done over the years. Serious lack of ability to retain talent with lack of acknowledgement. Not good.

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

    Took all I could take....

    Analyst (Former Employee) Purchase, NY

    ProsBeautiful grounds
    World known brand
    Central location

    ConsENORMOUS disparity in workload. Some sit all day on facebook while others drown in projects and paper! Preach work-life balance but it is selective at best. The VP and Directors of my former group were never in the office! Always "WORKING FROM HOME". While everyone else slaved away! And it became so TOXIC! People jumping ship every day!

    Advice to Senior ManagementCLEAN HOUSE! Starting at the top!!!!

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