    Pros

    Incredible global company w/ huge depth of experience, opportunities for advancement, and ability to explore different areas of the company throughout your career.

    Cons

    Due to the ever-changing 'rotational' nature of positions at PepsiCo, there are some issues w/ continuity / knowledge transfer but that is a trade-off they appear comfortable with.

    On-boarding process went very well

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Being new, I don't know too much yet. The on-boarding process was fairly smooth. They did a good job with the orientation and my manager had everything ready to go to get me started day 1. The perks are great. Free oatmeal in the morning at the Plaza in Chicago, cheap on-site health club, etc.

    Cons

    Everything is VERY corporate. There is a set way to do everything. Being new, it has been challenging to learn the right process and who the right people are to talk to. Some people take for granted that a newcomer may not know all the right procedures. LOTS of bizarre acronyms are used. They even joke about it in the orientation.

    Pros

    PepsiCo PAMPERS their interns. We were taken on numerous field trips, and got to have weekly lunches with senior leaders of the company. We were given real projects that were stimulating and had the opportunity to connect with many of the employees.

    Cons

    Many of the employees at Pepsi are extremely busy. As an intern it was sometimes easy to be overlooked or pushed off when other more pressing issues arose.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and willing to explain how things work. I always felt like I was contributing to the company with my work.

    Cons

    It's a fast paced work place, so you have to keep up. The management is always busy, so they are sometimes not as atentative to your needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more feedback from the work I was doing would have been nice.

    Current Employee - Research and Development Intern in White Plains, NY

    Pros

    The people are all extremely welcoming and helpful. They made themselves available to chat about advice on a project or my future career. I was able to do real work this summer and make contributions to the future of my team, which was a rewarding and beneficial experience. The intern committee planned numerous activities for the interns to get to know one another as well as for the interns to get to know current employees. Overall it was a great learning experience and I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to work for such an impactful company.

    Cons

    There were very few cons of this internship aside from the fact that I was always busy and so I did not have as much time to get to know employees in other departments which I would have liked to have been able to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are all inspirational and it was great that you took the time to have lunch with the interns each week because it was extremely beneficial to be able to get to know you.

    Supply Chain Internship (Frito-Lay)

    Current Employee - Supply Chain Internship

    Pros

    Frito-Lay is a great company that has excellent company values which are reflected in its internship program. The program allows you to work on high impact projects that not only give you a great understanding of the business but have a large impact as well! Along with this you have opportunities to network with many levels of management and gain exposure to executives when reporting out at the end of the summer. I highly recommend this internship program based on company values, leadership growth and long term career opportunities!

    Cons

    It is important to note that Frito-Lay is not a typical office job being that you will most likely work in a manufacturing environment. In order to be effective in this setting you must be self-motivated and a strong leader. The internship program is a great way to see if this environment if for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leaders I have encountered thus far have been great mentors that put a big emphasis on growing talent and displaying company values. My advice would be to continue to keep this a priority.
