    I worked at PepsiCo (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, Not locked in a cubicle.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. Bonus pay is based on sales goals management sets, sometimes unrealistically. 50 hours is considered basic and overtime pay is based on sales. Vacations are bid on based on seniority, and are scheduled the year before. Was once a good company to work for but I would no longer recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the salesmen. Listen to Route men and their feedback. Don't force ship product and then yell about stales. Sales goals should be clearly derived based on common practices.

    Pros

    Flexibility,great co-workers and Great brands

    Cons

    Worklife Balance
    Down Routes- This company does a terrible job with staffing up, you can get a call in on the weekend and have to take away time from your family to work on your off day.
    Company Culture- They make you feel ashamed for wanting to enjoy work life balance.

    You will always run down routes with Frito Lay. Pad your resume and leave ASAP!

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into the frontline and care about DSL's more, they have the hardest jobs in the company.
