    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.

    Pros

    I have had very very successful and long career. Over the years I have pushed to be the best I can be and have been rewarded for my effort. Decent benefits, good pay and they understand how to make a business profitable.

    Cons

    Not consistent from top down. Some are expected to follow and enforce the rules while others have no accountability. Whether you union or non union....the rules should apply to all.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent, just because an employee throws a tantrum trip doesn't mean you have to back away and let them walk all over you. If the documentation is there, then support your supervisors....they are on the floor everyday. Hold ALL supervisors accountable to follow the rules.

    Pros

    Very inclusive, progressive company culture. Work-life balance is stressed and communication from the highest levels of the company is frequent.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to navigate divisions and functional silos to make job moves / seek out promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer ways for employees to find roles in other areas, cities, functions, etc.

    Pros

    Very good compensation package 5 day work week for most part fantastic training realistic expectations

    Cons

    No real downsides though some would say there is no work life balance. These people need to either own their own business or manage s dynamic environment like a grocery store where there is no Life in the Work/life balance equation.

    Advice to Management

    Include at least 1 week of formalized training outside of the Zone Office to learn the nuts and bolts of the job. Leadership training and presentation skills are important as is all the diversity training, but there needs to be a structure to learning all the paperwork and how to actually use all of the technology that's now available to us. For instance XPC, SFOD, KSS AVS CLO, who to ask, job titles and responsibilities ....

    Pros

    People oriented and focus on diverse work force with different cultural backgrounds. Large pool of open rolls that you could develop your career if you excel and keep good performance.
    Great fir new college graduates that look for opportunities to develop their career into the corporate world.

    Cons

    Too many responsibilities that do not allow you fully concentrate on your specific roll.
    Unrealistic market expectations, leaders don't have a clear idea of what happening on the market
    Frontline associates are overworked so you need to be able to motivate them to overlook at that situation.
    New hire managers have more opportunities to develop their carrer than managers that come from the salesmen pool.

    Advice to Management

    Release the load or increase people support by utility personal. One per DSL.
