    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 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, flexible hours (not for all jobs but in sales - yes), overall good company, well known company.

    Cons

    If you don't work and work hard, you don't succeed at all. This company takes EVERYTHING you've got. They give you 3000 tasks, tell you to accomplish all and then don't give you the tools to do the job. Customer complaints are a daily issue no matter what job you work.

    Advice to Management

    This company is shareholder driven. Management has no control over anything we do. It's all about the stock holders and keeping them happy and we all know it...so managers, just be realistic with us.

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

    Pros

    Solid Company, new equipment, LOTS of work, nice clean facility, good location, mechanics on sight, haul our own product. Honors senority, 401k.

    Cons

    Long hrs 60+ per week and hard physical work for average pay, driver pay is based on component wages, below average benefits, poorly ran, inexperienced Admin and Management makes job difficult, no life balance unless high senority, lack of respect and appreciation. Company seems to take more from Employees every year. Disappointing for such a successful company.

    Advice to Management

    Give respect to get respect, work hard and keep an open mind, hold yourself and others accountable, know and understand your jobs but Always REMEMBER! Sometimes a College Degree can be way overrated..
