    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    A fantastic experience that allows for managerial and analytical skills growth. Receiving a real, value added project allows for collaboration and individual work with co-workers and managers. The opportunities to get involved were endless, and the people were fantastic.

    Cons

    The time frame for the internship feels to short. With the learning curve involved in entering a new company (or the workforce) as well as formal training involved, it can feel like the internship is winding down before it really begins. When I finished the program, all I could think about was what more I could have accomplished with a few extra ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job and continue to challenge new employees!

    I worked at PepsiCo as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked on the SAP HCM implementation and it was very thorough. The leadership on the project was exceptional and methodical.

    Cons

    I really do not have any at this time.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Given plenty of opportunity to grow career-wise, as long as you're okay with moving around
    - Company values promoting from within
    - Supportive managers
    - Huge company with a product that sells itself

    Cons

    - Each location differs at least moderately on how they work/demands on employees/supportive managers. This is common in most companies, but becomes a bit of a problem in a company that expects you to move around often
    - Although managers are supportive, I feel that I am on HR's back burner the majority of the time
    - Can be easy to get caught up in the bureaucracy of such a large company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your front-line employees when it comes to demanding more from them. Value them, as they are the building blocks of the company.

    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 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I'm just starting in the company but the orientation I went through was very well put together. I really appreciated the lunch and chat with existing employees to get useful hints and general recommendations for new hires. Everyone was very welcoming and really open to the thousand questions a new hire can ask. I was extremely encouraged by my manager to make the time to meet with all team members and even those outside our group right away to help ease my transition and to make sure I had a wealth of resources to reach out to. All of these points have made my start here excellent and makes me even more excited to jump into it all!

    Cons

    Again, I don't have much exerpience yet but what I've grasped thus far is that it's going to take asking a lot of questions to help make sure I understand everything. There are processes for some things, but not everything and some sections are better than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing as of yet.
