    Pros

    Great leadership experience, sales experience and exposure to the daily operations that make this company thrive!

    Cons

    No cons, honestly! This internship program is like no other in the country, they give you a real project that is a real problem in the company and provide you with the flexibility, resources, and knowledge to implement your own creative solution, hands on! They really value what your bring to the table and are enthusiastic about young talent in PepsiCo, they view you as the future of this Fortune 50 company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and your commitment to making the Pepsi Culture inclusive, supportive, and tightly bonded.

    Most managers are inexperienced and self serving. Promotion opportunities are few and far between.

    Pros

    A well run organization. Most people are passionate about the growth and success of the business. Great products and marketing that you can stand behind

    Cons

    Some of the managers are only there to get to their next promotion quickly. They have no experience with managing, or completing the job at which they are managing. They show little interest in innovation or questioning the average. They just take and give marching orders with no personal insight or accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your internal team. They want to work hard and grow the company. Promote from within. Listen to input and give reasons for and thoughtful suggestions for changes in business execution.

    Pros

    Great teammates, convenient location, good wage, three shifts to choose from. Started as three month full-time Summer temp so great pay checks over this period.

    Cons

    Industry is seasonal, few hours in winter since I was at bottom of seniority. Work is repetitive and gets boring. Positions being automated, reduced job security. Long wait to get Full-Time. No raise or cost of living adjustment, though wage is already good.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, don't automate away jobs. Leads to reduced quality. That's my main criticism ( Twentyword minimum).

    Pros

    Great management, great benefited

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company, they use SAP so you don't get the chance to gain extra technical skills. Yearly reviews are a joke ( constant excuses why you don't get good ratings - always they say that they don't have the budget)

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management ? They can't do too much when Indra nooyi wants the stock to hit $120. It's like holding a gun to the head
