    I worked at PepsiAmericas part-time

    Pros

    great pay for not needing a college degree. If you work hard enough there is room for advancement

    Cons

    Long days, especially during the summer. You may be asked to pick up extra stores

    Advice to Management

    Hire more workers during the summer so the hours are realistic

    Pros

    good benefits, lots of physical excersize,

    no room for advancement, meager pay for supporting a family

    Strategic, thought provoking focus from Senior Management

    Pros

    Benefits- employee's- great HR team-

    Things can get caught up in "red tape" but once you leave this company you find out very quickly how good of a company it is to work for.

    Pros

    IT viewed as Business Partner
    Excellent long term strategy and vision
    CEO that CARES about employees
    Excellent career path definition and progression

    Cons

    Difficulty letting bad people go
    Poor decisions driven by fear of potential lawsuits
    Hard workers asked to work harder
    Imbalance with work & life - expect to work when needed - IT is definitely a 24x7 role

    Advice to Management

    Turnover can be a good thing!
    Hold everyone equally accountable
    Keep recognizing the 'rock stars' - concentrate on working on dealing with the bad seeds
