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

Pros

There is a lot of autonomy and ability to mold your organization.

Cons

There is poor communication with HQ and the Field. There is a lot of "old school" management still in place.

Advice to Management

Do some round tables in the field with salaried employees.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great career growth opportunities - all management levels encourage and support internal movement to improve and expand employee knowledge, skills, and experience.
    Excellent work/life balance - flex hours and efficient use of resources.
    Improvement culture - value-added change, unwillingness to continue any status quo leads to motivated and engaged employees.
    Communication highly advanced - broad-based and global collaboration, candor and trust are standards, they actually walk the talk, in my direct experience and by comparison working elsewhere.
    I enjoyed growing my career here. Not all companies operate equally, this one is at a higher level than most.

    Cons

    Focus on social skill development provides advantage to extroverted personalities, depriving introverted performers from contributing, often leaving them under-appreciated.
    Global company bureaucracy, difficult aligning the many diverse divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to improve and keep listening to employees, banish complacency and negativity. Reward and value technical proficiency along with soft social skill development.

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

    Pros

    Huge company, full benefits, congenial atmosphere, steady work

    Cons

    WS facility, being across the street from the RJ Reynolds Tobacco factory, has that factory mentality. Many long-time employees started in the local factories, and there families worked in factories all their careers, so it's in the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your long-time supervisors & managers are hindering significant process improvement in the name of maintaining their status quo. Duh!
