    Pros

    Good platform to jump from; in 3yrs I have seen co-workers all leave the company (at less than 1.5yrs served) to other roles for +30% salary. Good best practices; when I speak to colleagues about how we execute our planning, at the level of detail, with our level of control, I am listened to for guidance. A good second masters degree; generally a very well run program-I joined PepsiCo because I wanted a tighter run org in my life and was exhausted from having to inherit others' past lapses-PepsiCo finance is that very tight and well run machine, its good exposure into how to approach solid financial modeling and planning.

    Cons

    Overlapping & conflicting deliverables. Lack of respect towards employees. Large turnover. High stress in an investment banking attitude type life. Make corn syrup for America. Extreme, reads extreme, social engineering in promotion: in interviewing candidates for my department the focus has always been in the end to extend offers only to diversity qualifying candidates before those best qualified should they not fit that diversity background. Diversity inside PepsiCo is a verb; in three years I have seen bad results from this and there are race problems brewing within the ranks here. It is very unfortunate because by instituting a bonus structure to those Mgrs which hire a diversity candidate an artificial rainbow is created & doesn't work well together.

    Advice to Management

    Follow up with the Org Health Surveys conducted every 2 yrs, they are amazingly precise, well designed, and completely ignored.

    Pros

    Good place for advancement opportunities
    Caliber of people
    Integrity of the Company - doing things the right way

    Cons

    Work/life balance is extremely poor. People usually working 24/7, emails on the weekend, etc.
    50+ hour work weeks - continue to downsize and do more with less. Continue to pile up additional responsibilities on people at all levels in the organization
    Career development - Getting better but still a long way to go. Performance review process now focuses 50/50 on business and people results. I am impressed by the focus the organization puts on people results but require so much additional work that compromises work/life balance
    Extremely fast paced/employee morale
    Recognition
    Employee onboarding is weak

    Advice to Management
