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

    Pros

    Awesome pay, good benefits, vacation time + personal days; switch to 4 days a week in the winter vs 5 days in the summer. There's always a cooler stocked with free drinks, and employee's get super big discounts when buying product straight from the warehouse.

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes nowhere to be found, but not bad most of the time. 1st shift warehouse crew tends to be on the lazy side more times than not (in my experience that is). Long hours can take there toll, so make sure you prepare yourself for the 12+ hour days in the summer.

    Advice to Management

    Communication.

    - Flexible work hours and locations
    - Willing to train people on the job for new experiences
    - Large company = lots of opportunity

    Remember that your people are your #1 asset.
