    I have been working at PepsiCo as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Top shelf management team to work with.
    Very competitive wage and bonus program.
    Great home work balance with flexible scheduling.business cycle
    Stable position regardless of the economy. I've previously worked in the defense industry and had to deal with their business cycles. People drink Pepsi in war, they drink it in peace, they drink it with the economy good, they drink it with the economy bad. It just doesn't get more stable than this;-)

    Cons

    Too easy to pack on a couple extra pound drinking free Pepsi, LOL!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing what you're doing because it's working.
