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

    Pros

    - Great medical, dental, and vision plans
    - You can volunteer to test new snack/beverage products for the company
    - Free Pepsi at the cafeteria
    - Management is fairly laid back at the local level and want you to succeed and move up in the company
    - Most of your co-workers are about their business without being stuck up or anti-social and are always willing to help you out as a new employee

    Cons

    - HR experiences when you first come on can vary widely depending on who is on boarding you before you show up at the physical location; It's not consistent
    - If you want to give a talk in your particular field the general conscientious and observation is that the PR folks say no regardless if you are just a cog in the machine or a C-level person

    Advice to Management

    (1) Please develop a better program for vetting employees to speak at industry events versus just saying "no" to everything. There are a lot of talented individuals at PepsiCo who want to share their talents with other professionals in their field and that is stifling their professional development and reflects badly on the company. It seems like there is no "win-win" scenario for anyone due to the lack of specific policies around speaking at industry events.

    (2) I haven't been at the company very long, but I've noticed some wild variations with how people are brought on-board and the lag between the HR folks who hire you and the hiring manager. In the future I hope the HR professionals can do a better job of communicating with the managers and the potential/new hires about where they stand in their respective roles.
