    Pros

    PepsiCo is a great company with great people. There are a lot of smart intelligent people who mostly like to get the work done without an excess of BS.

    Cons

    The culture is competitive. Individuals are often left to their own devices to succeed. Definitely not for everyone- at least at corporate. Also, the business is very segmented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work to break down silos- both functional and sector based.
