    I have been working at PepsiCo (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At the beginning of the internship Pepsi does a nice job of making sure your onboarding process is smooth and you are introduced to the company before going out into the market to work with customers. Throughout my internship I was given the opportunity to work with customers and get real-world experience that is not offered in any classroom setting. My managers and every other employee at the plant were very welcoming and always around to answer any questions that I had. I would highly recommend this internship for anyone looking to work for a competitive and innovative company!

    Cons

    There was not any cons to this internship, the overall experience was excellent.

    Advice to Management

    My managers were great and very welcoming. They should keep doing exactly what they are already doing.

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

    Pros

    Good starting hourly pay, lots of room to move up in the company, just be ready to work a lot. If you show up and work hard, you will be rewarded. Insane benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours and sometimes a little too much corporate butt kissing to higher ups, but it's a huge company too.

    Pros

    Great pay, good benefits, two days off in a row, three weeks vacation a year. Overall good company to work for

    Cons

    Very repetitive, you're constantly moving around. The only break you get is when you're driving to your next store. I work 10-12 hour days. If you're not an active person and have a problem with sweating while working then this job isn't for you

    I have been working at PepsiCo (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible days to help coach and lead sales teams. There are online trainings you can utilize to continue to develop yourself.

    Cons

    The company puts a lot on the sdl. You receive calls from customers 7 days a week and it work life balance truly isn't there. Typical day consists of 6am-5pm. Lots of pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and staff up. Continually worry more about the bottom line rather than the employee. Has become a tough company to work for.

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

    Pros

    It is a great opportunity if you get the chance to work in a environment like this! Fast pace things are always moving, and you have to be on you feet ! The pay is excellent, and you will learn so much about so many different pieces of equipment I could never tell someone not to take the position if offered.

    Cons

    If you do not have much or any experience working with the equipment in the plant it will be difficult for you to train in a day shift. Problems during the day keep the veterans from focusing on proper training to a new technician. Don't just throw the technician out to the sharks without giving them some structure on day to day first!

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more frequently with all technicians. The new technicians need a lot more structure in how things work, and since it is your'e way or the highway let them know how you expect things done. Maybe take time out to go over specifics also just to be sure training is being performed like it should be. If there is a problem communicate it immediately, don't wait!.

    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.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good about giving comp days when working on weekends, managers are generally pretty nice. There are good benefits and good vacation time.

    Cons

    Off shifts, off hours, often working 50+ hours a week and weekends. There is some flexibility but next moves and hours are pretty much all determined for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hold other managers responsible. Many managers don't do their work well and others have to pick up their slack. Managers are only fired for relationships with others, yet some are allowed. It is extremely inconsistent.
