    Pros

    Great Company to work for. They care about your training and want to help you succeed. They will help you out if you are having problems.

    Cons

    Some of the employees do very little to help out the next person who is following them. They do just enough to make it look presentable.

    Pros

    What pros? Job sucks, and you lose your life.

    Cons

    overtime everyday, which is fine if you have no life and nothing to do, but anyone with a family is screwed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your all screw ups, and have no idea what your doing.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great development program, senior employees willing to mentor younger employees, focus on results.

    Cons

    HR sometimes gets in the way of development with strict rules and month long periods of recruitment that tend to be a burden on the rest of the team.

    Pros

    The company is a good company if you are at the right location. Very political in nature. If you are in the in crowd you are golden. If you are not apart of the inner circle you might as well be happy in your position or use it as a developing tool.

    Cons

    Senor leadership is all about you kissing the right behind. It's not what you know but rather who likes you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and take notice of the good people in the organization before you lose them. Stop putting all your stock in college new hires and value your workers on the floor doing the work.
