    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern

    Pros

    Great work/life balance for an intern, constant feedback from my manager and team. Great relationship with other employees at my location.

    Cons

    I've had other internship experience and I can say PepsiCo ranks high up there for me. Can't really point out a negative, this might be because I was an intern (can't speak for full-time employees).

    Advice to Management

    More visibility to other roles in other functions across PepsiCo.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great money with no degree requirments. Can get off before evening depending on route.Great Healthcare and benefits.

    Cons

    Favoritism, unreachable goals, lazy supervisors,average worklife balance and too many format and procedure changes

    Advice to Management

    We are more than numbers! Frito lay used to be great company to ride for career, now its changing constantly and salary and worklife balance is held hostage in the process. Stop ignoring situations until they escalate then act on them by holding RSR accountable when you dont dont the results you want last minute.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent wages and some employee discounts. I love my team and supervisor! Every team is different and in order to get over time you have to work on the opposite team.

    Cons

    Long hours and some of the management team is very inexperienced, some of them are rude and will curse at you and very unprofessional

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    I worked for Frito Lay for 25 years and enjoyed every minute working with the people. The benefits are very good.

    Cons

    This company expect a great deal from employees with very little in the way of compensation (pay). I was working around 70 hours a week and the pay nowhere near matched the hours I was putting in. This is why I eventually quit to go back to school.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay and decrease expected workload because not only does it jeopardize the health and safety of employees it also jeopardizes relationships

    Pros

    Great place to work and earn a decent paying wage if you don't have a lot of experience in the working world.

    Cons

    It is a very very very very hard job if you don't have a good work ethic or if you are really dumb.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on and just keep doing what it is that you do and things will keep on going well.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job within itself was great.Training was easy if you're a fast learner. I would love to go back there. The pay is awesome.

    Cons

    Human Resources is the worst department at the plant I worked at. They have no clue as to what goes on in a warehouse. The profanity that is used on a daily basis. The men in the warehouse have no respect for women. When you're confronted by the men so many times after reporting to the managers and supervisors you have to take matters into your own hands. I was 6 months pregnant doing a lead position that I wasn't getting paid for and was approached by a man who said he would knock me out. No manager or supervisor on the floor just me and the men. I defended myself the best way I could and was reported like I initiated the argument. I was suspended then fired and told I was no rehirable because of the language I used. Appealed my termination thru the plant and higher Human Resources and didn't hear from the higher power. Do I think it was fair no I do not. I dedicated myself to a company who didn't even swing a bat for me when I really needed them to and they knew I had reported many complaints about being disrespected.

    Advice to Management

    If you're gonna have employees terminated for using profanity make sure you're not using profanity either. You lead by example. Treat every employee the same.
