Pros

Great company to have on your resume, once working at PBG all companies know that you are a hard worker. Extremely fast paced environment. The benefits are some of the best, not only in the industry, but of all companies.

Cons

There is a real lack of leadership. The normal operation mode is reactive not proactive, so get used to always being short of staffing. When managers from the business unit come to town, get ready to go all out to create the craziest dog and pony show for them, instead of showing them the real world. Best part of the Dog and Pony show is that you get to take it down hours after they leave town. Customer Reps are always being asked to work their "off days" due to the lack of staffing. In this role you are expected to be on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week, it does not matter what is going on in your personal life, work comes first. You can also always count human resources to make anything more complicated then what it needs to be. It seems as if they are always working against you.

Advice to Management

Remember that your front line is what the customer sees every day. If they hate their job, what does that say about the company. This location needs an overhaul.

    Pros

    There are some GREAT Employees at PepsiCo. . There are still some excellent people in management, last time I looked.

    Cons

    Eliminating American Jobs, Indian Outsourcing and H1B Visa (through Contract IT Vendors). The few remaining American Managers are fighting an uphill battle to keep this American-Built company working for America, while they expand in the world.

    Advice to Management

    Hire AMERICAN WORKERS. They built the company. Stop sending work to places that don't have the same workplace requirements and employment laws as the US. Who do you think buys your products?

    Pros

    You canmake pretty decent money, the health care, while expensive is very good and would be considered a taxable "Cadillac plan", and is resistant to recession, and reasonably autonomous work environment

    Cons

    No consideration to personal life or a work-life balance. They will attempt to intimidate you into working through almost every holiday. Promotions are a joke and Route Sales reps are considered to be bottom of the barrel. By far, the worst company I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    None, they are too stupid to take it.
