I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

High quality, very loyal workforce. You will learn a lot. Many, many opportunities to add value. Great relationships with external partners and vendors. Company is a leader in areas of sustainability and diversity. Performance with Purpose is the right overarching vision statement.

Cons

Lost its "work hard, play hard" reputation. Huge disconnect with how sr executives value contributions made by a quality work force. Core issue is that sr executive leaders are not able to prioritize thus not able to focus employee's accountabilities and work load. Everything is a priority thus it is a challenge to do the right work the right way. For many years, I use to say I love my job.

Advice to Management

Be wary of new sr executives who come in and say the existing work force is not competent. Employee base has always been open to change and new ideas; you taught us that with your investment in diversity training so many years ago. New leadership cannot be disrespectful of the contributions made by legacy employees. When that happens the ROI on the new executive is significantly reduced because there is no trust between the foundational employee base and their new leader.
