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

    Pros

    Extremely supportive and really treats interns well. Huge amounts of resources allow them to really wow their interns. HR is very supportive.

    Cons

    My manager and mentor were hard to get in contact with, so I felt a little lost sometimes. Not knowing exactly the scope of the internship made it difficult to work at my maximum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the interns know what you expect them to get out of the internship. Try to guide them better and not just ask how its going. As an intern I knew almost nothing about how the company operates, the industry, or how a DSL is supposed to act. I felt like my project was unique so I couldn't even ask other interns for help.
