    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    All the Soda and energy drinks you can drink. You can also buy soda for way less than face value (i.e. $4 for 24 20 ounce drinks). Plenty of opportunity to move around the company but not much room to move up. Great benefits and great pay if you are part of the Pepsi Co's that are unionized.

    Cons

    They always had a hard time hiring quality employees, I felt like they just hired the first to apply. The job I had in the warehouse was very stressful mostly because it didn't have a time frame other than starting at 4pm. Some nights we would work till 11pm, some nights we would work till 3am. There was a new work load every night that had to be finished before we could go home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great people. I felt I could befriend all of the management.

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Ability to make decisions at every level. The business operates with an entrepreneurial mentality which leads to innovation.

    Cons

    At times the corporation changes direction extremely fast. Quick to create a new operating model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more in work-life balance. The corporation is fast paced and employees need more flexibility to refresh.
