    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.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership team. PepsiCo cares for employees and takes the time and resources to develop its labor force.

    Cons

    Benefits were best in the world. I feel PepsiCo's benefit are not a major differentiating point.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great job. Keep the leadership on social causes and keep the journey to make PepsiCo products healthier.

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

    Pros

    There is an open and honest work environment with great senior leadership that are supportive. Interesting work, flexibility, good people.

    Cons

    People often discount prior experience outside of the company. It can be hard to move to other role as there are people that seem to remain in roles for "life" at higher levels.

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly people. Excellent retirement savings. Pay at Frito-Lay higher than other similar companies.

    Cons

    Terrible when it comes work and personal life balance. Only getting one day off a week wears a person down.

    Advice to Management

    Train new incoming managers on people skills and how to effectively communicate with work force.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company has good benefits. The job is very steady, very reliable. There's a lot of opportunity for growth. There's a lot of facilities around USA where you can relocate. There are very well compensated positions.

    Cons

    For merchandisers and my position. Very slow income growth.
    Also, to promote they don't offer training. If you want to promote to a non union position, you have to go out of your way and show the bosses that you'll do anything for them to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Develop greater skills within you employees that will allow them to promote themselves within the company.
    Pepsi don't have programs to educate and develop skills on their employees. It leaves it up to the employee to do it on his own.
