    Decent pay, flexible hours. Lots of independence.

    Part Time Merchandiser (Former Employee)
    Rexburg, ID

    ProsAs a merchandiser you have flexible hours and little supervision, so you can work at your pace and get exactly as many hours as you want.

    ConsHeavy work, I dropped a 24 pack on my finger and broke it. No great potential to advance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEstablish a pathway to progress in Pepsi even to the lowest of the low.

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

    Turn and Burn

    Maintenance Manager (Former Employee)
    Burnsville, MN

    ProsGood location and they paid for relocation. Good benefits offering on site nursey, contiuned learning and community involvement.

    ConsTurn over of managers I was the 5th person in my job in 10 years. The union has the upper hand at this site due to the amount of manager turn over. in my time with Pepsi we had two different QC manager and they have had two more sense I left, my boss (plant manager) changed 4 times in the 5 years I was there, we had 3 different production manages and changed warhouse managers 3 or 4 times. Difficult to get everyone on the same page with no consitant leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsseble to good team for x years, help them support them in holding the people accountable. Do not continue to bring people back that have been terminated it makes management look week and provides the union with more power.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Summer Job for a Student!

    Retail Customer Developer (Current Employee)

    Pros- semi flexible hours
    - great compensation for the difficulty of work
    - drive around all day
    - can be quite social in the field

    Cons- poor communication between DSD's and upper management
    - high expectations for things that are sometimes uncontrollable
    - HR is totally out to lunch, saw them on my first day and not once more in a year
    - you are paid by week as a summer student. You get the same compensation whether you work 25 hrs or 50 hrs
    - no culture building events for employees at all

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen closer to the advice of your DSD's, they have direct contact with the customer and know what the trends are

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good pay, poor management

    Warehouser I (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pay, easy enough work, flexible scheduling, incentives to reward employees, free training, free products from all divisions of the company

    ConsExtremely unorganized management, almost zero chance of upward movement or career advancement. Receiving all their products for free will damage your health (but that's in your hands)

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees, don't be afraid to try something new

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Outstanding work environment

    Talent Acquisition Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Plano, TX

    ProsThe people at this company are top shelf. Not only do I work with the best and brightest but I enjoy them from a personal standpoint. This is a place for people that are high-energy and want to win. The company continues to evolve from a food and beverage standpoint which is exciting to see. Salary is extremely fair compared to the rest of the market.

    ConsWorkload is huge but that's what you sign up for when joining the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to evolve from a healthy food and beverage offering.

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

    AWESOME place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsPepsiCo offers great pay and benefits and is truly a fun place to work. I enjoyed being encouraged to take on critical experiences to grow my skill set, knowledge base and ultimately my career. The environment is young and collaborative and the company has brands you can really identify with. The Frito Lay fitness center is awesome too!

    ConsLong hours. Cafeteria food.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to drive power of one mentality

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

    My PepsiCo

    TAM (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people
    The career opportunities are endless
    Global scope
    Everyone knows our products and who we are
    Many different ways to make a difference
    Collaborative culture
    Innovative company

    ConsThe coming together of the different brands (Pepsi vs FritoLay) can be a challenge
    Sometimes competting initiatives
    You have to be focused on your own work life balance because there's so much to do
