    Pros

    PepsiCo is a great place to build your skills. They make sure that you have the right pieces in place to become a successful employee.

    Cons

    The hours are long and once in the company it is hard to get a raise that is fair for the work that you have put in.

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

    Pros

    fast paced environment, exposure to senior leaders and complex business issues. The company is rarely evolving. You can be sure that growth is going to be limited.

    Cons

    Becomes redundant work over time with nowhere to move in career progression. They are not involved in external activities and management is very small in size for the amount of people that work at this facility.

    Pros

    Great products, Great noteriety, fun outings

    Cons

    If you weren't "in" with the right people, you will not continue to move up, regardless of experience or dedication. When in a bullying situation with superiors HR made minimal efforts to remedy the situation and the backlash was so hard to endure that I had to leave the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give everyone a fair shot. Scrutinize managers and make sure they are not taking advantage of their direct reports, while passing their direct reports' work off as their own.

    Former Employee - RSR Route Sales Representative in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lot of growth if you have a degree
    Large corporation
    Good benefits
    Good pay
    Fun environment
    Never a dull moment, constant work.

    Cons

    Growth, only if you have a degree.
    Large corporation, big demands, sometimes unrealistic.
    Long work weeks 50+ hours to do your job correctly.
    Pushed to work holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more from within. Hiring low level management straight from school or other industries to tell a 10-15+ year vet that's had long tenure with the company and have seen all the ends and outs is just simply not going to work. There will always be clash.

    I worked at PepsiCo

    Pros

    Pepsi is a great company to work for. They allow you to grow with the company. Employees and Management are some of the best I ever encountered in my life.... PEPSI BLUE is the way to go!

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are working the weekends. Other than that it's not to much to complain about. Overall it a great place to launch your career

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

    Pros

    My work week is 4 days on and 3 days off, this gives me lots of time at home

    Cons

    Not paid for as much as I do
    No room to grow within the company unless I am willing to apply at a plant 2-3 hours away.
    They cut hours as they see fit
    Expectations are high, but pestered to work faster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    After 10 years the money can be great if you have a degree. It is also a very high pace career.

    Cons

    Work/life balance does not mean anything to this company. High officials do not know or understand the foundation that makes the company the giant it is.
