    Great opportunities and culture if you can roll with the high expectations

    Talent Acquisition Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsInnovative culture that is always evolving, results driven employees who are genuine and hard working, work hard but play hard

    ConsBig size sometimes can make you feel small, hard to navigate through matrix, high expectations sometimes equals long hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in more retention programs - Employees are loyal but need to be reminded of their value. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish when it comes to staff - We can operate so lean it burns people out.

    Fantastic company to work for!

    Talent Acquisition (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsGreat flexibility, competitive salary, fun corporate culture, lots of collaboration, reasonable career growth, also very innovative - not just with the product development but also within each function's workstream

    ConsWhile not a con for everyone, PepsiCo is a very fast paced work environment, which results in constant process changes and new technology to learn on a constant basis. This can be a huge hurdle for certain types of personalities.

    Fun Place to Work

    Talent Acquisition (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsCollaborative work environment, management helps with career growth by delegating project work and teaming you up with a mentor. Work life balance and employee resource groups are viewed as a must by all employees and management. Starbucks and Gym on site at FLNA HQ.

    ConsLong hours at times, Cafeteria food - bland and cost is too high, building needs a remodel.
