    I worked at PepsiCo (More than a year)

    Pros

    Name certainly looks nice on a resume --- coworkers are some of the nicest people you'll meet -- because you are all in the trenches.

    Depending on what you do --- this company definitely has a vast array of CPG products -- which can give you a diversity of experience depending on your function.

    Cons

    Some departments are one of those places about politics, the blame game, deception, etc. You may know the type. The environment can very toxic. Sometimes senior leadership just doesn't have a clue. It's certainly not unique in this economy, but raises are hard to come by after yearly reviews.

    This place also encourages the common (and disgusting) act of hiring contractors (40 hours a week) --- to do identical jobs as full time employees --- and not pay them benefits. Personally I worked full time, but still. Maybe this is standard practice in America now, but I don't support companies that follow the Walmart model. I'm typing this while enjoying a fine Coca Cola product.
