Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Benefits packages are great, along with Paid vacation system. High turnover so there are always positions opening up. The PepsiCo name carries great weight within production field.

Cons

working 13 hours plus a day as production supervisor, along with weekends. HR afraid to discipline associates for fear of Union. Makes it very difficult to be effective when you constantly fight for respect from your direct reports. They will even curse you out because they know nothing will happen.

Advice to Management

don't let fear be a bigger motivator than success.

    No 401k matching.

    Poor training for new roles.

    Have a better on boarding process for those individuals who need training in their new roles. Be ahead of the games in terms of plans for the year, rather than waiting until the last minute to try and make your sales targets.
