    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    Having PepsiCo on your resume
    Ability to learn about processes and systems if proactive
    Great amenities
    Inclusive culture
    fun perks
    True work/life balance

    Cons

    Organization has too many layers of management which causes poor communication between divisions. Too many middle managers execute initiatives properly.
    Lack of accountability amongst middle management
    Only way to increase salary significantly is to leave and come back
    Since 2008 economy has weakened premium brands (Quaker & Gatorade)
    Middle management will slow growth by discouraging acquisition of additional responsibility
    Large disparity in talent amongst peers
    Will often promote on tenure over acumen

    Advice to Management

    Decision makers are afraid to actually make decisions because of yearly workforce reduction. The company needs to become more lean to foster sustainable growth. There is also too much overlap amongst job responsibilities. Organization needs to make sure that employees have ability to learn other portions of the business to create value. Make sure you weed out poor managers that create unhappy counter-cultures.
