    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has good values, there is a genuine concern for the professional growth of employees providing different courses or workshops; they have a health program for employees called Healthy Living where they encourage exercise and facilitate nutritionists, and have a flexible schedule where you set your schedule of entry and exit and if the position allows it, you can also do home office. The pay is a little bit above average and bonuses or dividends can be also good if the company had a good year...

    Cons

    But, these benefits only apply if you work at a corporate environment, otherwise if you are in the operative one (as an Analyst or Manager), you won't get them, sometimes you know at what time you start working but not when you will finish, sometimes the nutritionists or marketing programs (samples of new products for instance) offered to employees only applies in their corporate office, but being a warehouse or distribution center employee sometimes feels unfair because you might have the same title but life quality and the benefits of empolees vary A LOT if you work in a corporate environment.
    Also sometimes you won't have time to attend a training or workshop and depending on your boss, but usually they will ask you to have things done first... so you'll miss all of them.
    I also noticed the last 5 years that they cared much about the trainees (PACH) that just entered the company instead of employees that have been there for 8+ years, it was ridiculous to see how these guys with one year of experience got promoted faster than the ones with more experience (and abilities)

    Advice to Management

    Make it possible to have the benefits to all employees, not just a few ones.
    It doesn't matter which activity you have, all employees should have time to attend training.
    And more important, we know you will always need fresh ideas with recent graduates but don't forget about the 'veterans' that have the knowledge, abilities, and training.

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

    Pros

    High pay, excellent benefits, good training by co-workers. Maintenance department has excellent employees that take ownership of their responsibilities. (Unlike management).

    Cons

    Kids straight out of college with no experience are hired for management and try to micro-manage but really don’t have any idea about what we do. Not their fault but they are clueless on about every level. They have no vision or long term focus. They just want to cut corners to get their bonuses. This business model if failing and long term will be very damaging to company overall.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that has some mechanical experience in the maintenance department, not kids straight from Taco Bell or Walmart.
