    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    The people are fantastic and willing to help regardless of their position. Highly collaborative culture and matrix organization means that people interaction is the key to success. Environment is fun and entertaining. Employee resource groups abound and your people engagement is just as important as your business success.

    Cons

    Tough place for introverts given the nature of the collaborations. Despite being dependent on sharing, technological and software systems do not support culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing technological tools to improve collaborative efficiencies. Also consider designing specific workspaces for creative collaboration and ideation as well as solitude and more cerebral individual processing.
