    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay and good health insurance. Being on your own 95% of the time is definitely a plus too

    Cons

    I dont even know where to begin. Ive been working for pepsi for over 6months now and i feel there are many things wrong. Like another review mentioned, the higher guys are sooo worried about the scores and numbers they get that they dont even care what you go through in your shift or just throughout the day. If you wanna work as a merchandiser get ready for being paid half overtime and being expected to die for pepsi. And lastly basically no social life, you'll just be so tired after your long shifts that youre just gonna knock out once youre home and wake up at 5am the next day and do the same again.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees more. Appreciate the work they do and thank them once in a while. If a mistake is made understand that they might've been tired after lifting stuff and constantly moving all day long

    I have been working at PepsiCo (More than a year)

    Pros

    Brand name recognition in the marketplace

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, no chain and command control, sectors/markets/businesses act like they compete against each other; they forget that the external is the competition

    Advice to Management

    Spend the IT investment and get your systems up to speed to provide accurate reporting and stop wasting man-hours with manual work.

    I worked at PepsiCo (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some Very Large & Well Known Brands Surrounded by Smart and Motivated People Offered a Reasonable Amount of Autonomy Industry Best Thought Leadership

    Cons

    Politics, Politics, Politics Do or Die Mentality Company Tends to Have a Lot of Significant Restructures & Reorganizations Toe the Company Line or Suffer the Consequences

    Advice to Management

    Think through the changes you put in place, as often times significant changes are not very well vetted and end up requiring more rework. Just because you have so many huge brands, it doesn't mean its the best place to work.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hourly wage is very competitive! The insurance and other compensation are also very good!

    Cons

    The hours are horrid. If your full time, be prepared to work 60+ hours a week. Its all manual labor, fast paced. Mgmt breaths down your neck. Its clear most of management is clueless as to whats going on during a shift. Your pretty much on call all the time, if someone leaves sick, their workload is transferred over to you.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work / life balance. Talk to your associates about problems on the floor
