    I worked at PepsiCo as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work is good and pays well. Invoicing is not a problem.

    Cons

    Plans continue to change during projects. OK but it always last minute, so it cost the job.

    Advice to Management

    Plan better with your contractors and the costs will be reduced.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    they care about you as a whole marketer, you learn a lot even from outside influences

    Cons

    due to industry and company you wont get much full year campaign experience. they may say you do but you won't unless at a real life style brand/company. i did a ton of amazing programs but nothing like full year campaigns.

    budgets and teams are much smaller than you'd imagine. most of cpg is like this

    bias towards those coming from bigger schools. some bias but not complete - more so when competing for roles.

    some complete idiots in management who are only there to fulfill equality quotas e.g. minority females. (im a minority female myself)

    global opportunities are advertised carefully but non existent if we're honest.

    you will never get to do a role longer than 18-24 months below director level. this is fine and great but on flip side you wont be able to say you did a brand role longer than that.

    Pros

    Location and stability of company.

    Cons

    As a manager, You are basically working 7 days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your lower level management to hire mor frontline sales employees than you currently allow. Stop paying your frontline sales force thst your managers manage more than your management team.

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

    Pros

    PepsiCo is an accomplished organization with high caliber people. Compensation is above average and business performance is consistent. There are lots of opportunities to grow given good results.

    Cons

    There is very much an up or out attitude as you progress to executive levels. It's a somewhat unforgiving organization. If you get sideways with leaders you should leave because the organization memory is long-tested. At Fritolay there was a strong culture and good values. However, that has slowly eroded. It's now more like PepsiCo that is mostly characterized by talented people that are poor people leaders. Great leaders tend to leave. Work-Life balance is a big challenge. Indra Nooyi has made PepsiCo a pulpit for her personal values. It's hurt the business at times and alienated many inside and outside the organization. She takes no accountability for her actions and failures. She appears to not care about anyone but herself.

    Advice to Management

    People are your greatest asset and competitive advantage! Manage them like you would a long-lived asset. Have a plan for them and listen to them. Close the disconnect between senior leaders and frontline employees. If you don't, the strength of talent you've historically enjoyed that has fueled your performance will disappear. Oh, by the way it's already happening!

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They at least pay you SOMETHING.
    You can have something to do alllll day long.

    Cons

    Overworked. Underpaid. Micro-managed out the wazoo. Worried too much about saving money than spending. You get what you put in.
    They are in complete and total control of your pay and WILL adjust your sales plan if you go to high and keep it high to prevent you from getting paid out. All the while reaping benefits. Holidays you will work your tail off and have nothing to show for it because the plan will be too high not only that but you will have loaded your stores so much it will hurt you on your next week's plan or start your period off in a deficit. No flexibility for time off. No set schedule. No incentives. Most of the company truck have no A/C. In texas people....TEXAS. You are the driver, stocker ,and sales rep. 3 jobs in one. It should pay a minimum of 70k. If they want all of their chores done right. But that will never happen because the CEO is a greed driven workforce pocket drainer.

    Advice to Management

    I don't want to offer any advice. I hope you fail epically. And it is possible for empires to fail. Look in a history book. You upper management morons are supposed to be educated. Keep up the terrible work. I hope all my former coworkers find a home with a company that will treat them for what they are worth instead of sweat shop workers. But what do you expect with a CEO from a third world country. It's just a normality over there. And I also had stability if your wondering. I was there 7 long years. Thank God I'm out. Don't work for this dumpster fire. Nothing will change. Just looking out for my fellow man. By the way Frito Lay Pepsi Tropicana Quaker alllll a part of the clogged commode . Stay away. You've been warned.
