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

    Pros

    Surrounded by talented and motivated people. I've worked several jobs in my life and PepsiCo is by far the best. They really care about their employees and the opportunities are there for the taking. You will have to be dedicated and work hard to achieve what you want in this company, but that is what makes success at PepsiCo feel so good. I have never been more excited to go to work or felt more at home in any other company than I do at PepsiCo.

    Cons

    The company is so big that it is sometimes easy to get lost in the maze of businesses, divisions, brands, and their various levels of management, but this is common in any large organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the development of lower level employees. I have seen many move on to become phenomenon managers because of the coaching and development they were given early in their career at PepsiCo.

    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 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A very resourceful company full of bright people that offered a significant international exposure and abroad working opportunities for professional development since very early in a working career

    Cons

    Extreme rapid and constant business changes were part of the day-to-day routine, and for anyone in managerial positions, to be able to match this fast pace really meant it a personal challenge

    Advice to Management

    With high indexes of personnel turnover and also personnel internally changing jobs, some kind of anchors were needed in order to compensate for that sense of instability affecting bottlers' operations

    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 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are really good, and the company is very open about everything that's going on inside of the production and the warehouse facility. Some of the most motivated people I've ever worked with here. Managers and coworkers are all really friendly they provide meals for their employees on numerous occasions. Most people there are good friends and treat each other like family

    Cons

    The health insurance deductible could be lower. But by no means is a very high deductible

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what y'all are doing y'all are definitely one of the best management team I've worked for so far
