Pros

Great brands and nothing else.

Cons

Private ownership.
Owner and son, (Chairman and President) live in a bubble with no concept of reality on the street. Turnover is astronomical though ownership thinks it is in line. They have no concept of what is "normal" for a company their size. Chairman micro-manages everything nuance of the business never allowing his manager to participate in critical thinking. As an employee, having family is a negative as it is a distraction to working 20+ hours a day. If a family emergency should arise you may find yourself unemployed. Sales and operations do not get paid holidays off but rather have to make up a holiday on the next weekend.

Advice to Management

Sell the business back to PepsiCo and retire in Florida. Do your employees a favor.

    Pros

    The best part about working for Pepsi MidAmerica is the fact that the company is such a well-developed trademark and is admired by most of the other companies. The work is pressureless and the schedule is made by you. You do not have someone breathing over your neck telling you what to do.

    Cons

    The management never lets you know what to do, while getting upset when you do something "that is not in the job description." You determine your own schedule, but they can tell you to travel to different towns to do extra work whenever they feel necessary. Yea

    Advice to Management

    Have comunication with your employees

    I have been working at Pepsi MidAmerica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    share knowledge with highly experienced and talented professionals. Great environment to work in. Everyone is commited to help each other grow both professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Since being a massive company your ideas are not heard, specially if you are in an entry level position, which I imagine is the same in every big corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate constantly. Use the blue ocean strategy to never be left behind in terms of innovation. Competing against other companies in terms of pricing rates and other basic factors in never the most suitable plan out there.
