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

Pros

The pay's good. If you're hourly, you'll make a killing.

Cons

Poor management, from front-line to senior management. No willingness to improve the environment. Too many sacred cows. It's not what you know, it's how much you brown nose. If you're incompetent but suck up, you'll go far. Don't ever go to HR about manager quality, or ethics issues.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the failed ITIL model. The only way things get done is if the ITIL structure is circumvented. Clean house of the management layer and start over.

    Pros

    Great products.
    Great employees
    Nothing else.

    Cons

    Senior management are puppets.
    Company really believes that the products are healthy.
    bonus structure a joke compared to the industry.
    constant restructuring.
    actuary scientists are the only secure job there.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Indra. Compton has already flown the coop and he was the only decent person left there. Everyone should have had the big eye opener during the 08 and 12 layoffs. Get out while you can!

    No Manager support when it comes to customer issues.

    Back your managers up no matter what. The customer is not necessarily right all the time.
