I love it.

Sanitation/Processing (Current Employee)
Jonesboro, AR

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

Proswell i work in the sanitation department. Its days where you get your hours and dont but overall i like working here because theirs room to grow and get more hours and advantages to move to other departments. Another thing if ur having a hard time with ur job their is always somebody who is willing to help.

ConsThere are not many challenges

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fantastic company to work for. Very fast paced.

Quality Control Supervisor (Current Employee)
Johnstown, PA

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

ProsGreat work environment. Easy going management staff which makes the long hours fun. Always something changing. The guys on the floor are great to work with.

ConsManaging in a union environment is always a challenge. A lot of movement in the management staff. Running 24/7 makes for a lot of phone calls and a lot of weekend problems.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't move around management staff as quickly. The campus hire program is great, but too much movement leaves the front-line with a lack of trust/authority to the frequently shuffled supervisors.

Great

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at PepsiCo

Pros- Competitive Benefits and Compensation packages
- Great training and development programs
- Opportunities
- Culture of Hardwork and constantly striving to beat out the competition

Cons- Work life balance

It is a fast/tough industry to stay competitive in. It demands early mornings as well as long hours. However you have the opportunity to create measurable results that you can be proud of

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to motivate employees

Great company

Bulk Account Representative (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWell balanced beliefs in hard work and family time. Excellent benefits and great people to work with. Most of the management and your coworkers become family. They are always genuinely concerned about your life.

Consthere are not many cons to working for PepsiCo. Just long hours at times, mostly due to holidays.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. This has been one of my favorite employers. I know at times the restructuring of companies hurts. But you have tried to have as little impact on families as possible.

Incredible opportunity for career growth

Executive Assistant (Current Employee)
Purchase, NY

I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWith constant flexing markets and PepsiCo maintaining modern applications to "Run the Show" there was always room to learn just one more thing creating a sense of versatility. In the Administrative role, in order to function you would have to wear many hats and maintain flexibility for success. Very competitive environment. Skills learned and achievements prepare one for any environment.

ConsManagement specific... lack of ability to adhere to core values. The work existed however management failure to acknowledge efforts, stick to work life balance rule. Almost as if "your good at what you do, stay right there", "You are a loyal employee, you are stuck"

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you have a stellar employee. Don't push them out the door based on specific current moments, with lack of consideration towards what was actually done over the years. Serious lack of ability to retain talent with lack of acknowledgement. Not good.
