    Pros

    health insurance, competitive pay, great teamwork

    Cons

    tried advancing to another dept and because i didnt pass the test. I was ineligible for the new position. Pretty sad this determines a position for an employee.

    Advice to Management

    GET RID OF THE TEST REQUIRED FOR SOME JOBS!!!! IF YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE BEEN THERE FOR YEARS CANT PASS IT WHAT MAKES YOU THINK SOMEONE ELSE CAN!

    Pros

    Free soda or chips depending on location

    Cons

    Terrible communication
    Management rude and disrespectful
    Worst morale I have ever experienced

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the top level finance management and start over. The bad morale comes from the top. If people don't respect the leader, they won't be happy and won't perform well.

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

    Pros

    Ground force workers are spot on

    Cons

    The maintenance department and overall management fail to take care of their employees. I worked for Pepsi for almost 90 days and out of those 90 days I never received a paycheck that I was not shorted hours and needed corrections. I could understand if the management were overwhelmed with a large amount of employees however in the maintenance department there are only 7. I am not the only one, the day I started other employees were already complaining about the same issue. Management is always looking to cut corners and take advantage of the employees. They create a lot of the overtime they complain about having to payout by always needing to have their hands on the situation if they would allow the system experts do the job they are being paid for and provide them with the proper tools to do the job correctly the first time not only would the plant run more efficient it would also cut down on those hours that they have such a problem with. As management it should be high on their "TO DO" list to ensure the employees get the pay they worked hard for.

    Safety is not as high on their priorities as they should be. machinery that breaks is continuously being worked on with out using the LOTO program because this is the standard that has been set within the plant. Many times management would be inside the equipment during these times so what precedence is being set for those who are actually turning the wrenches.

    Maintenance Leadership: There's absolutely zero leadership/ organization in this department. On a daily basis the leadership is stabbing each other in the back talking about each other even though they are not doing their job properly either.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of their employees by ensuring the pay issue is taken care of.
    Put management in place that not only wants the plant to succeed but also the workers. (management only gets bonuses if the workers keep the plant operating) assuming you are not selling inventory at the end of the year to get in the green
