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

    Pros

    PepsiCo has a solid track record, diverse portfolio and continues to deliver when market trends are adverse.

    Cons

    Middle management leadership is very poor due to inexperience, lack of knowledge and poor work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    You continue to promote through campus recruit program, however lack of solid work ethic, accountability and functional knowledge, is hindering the company from moving forward because managers are not qualified, or around long enough in their position to acquire the skills to deliver solid results. As a company "paying lip service to promoting from within," only creates apathy to the ones who are shouldering the real workload. Stop promising recruits promotions before they acquire the proper knowledge to do a good job. There is still plenty of opportunity in the industry, but middle managers do not have the experience to capture it.

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

    Pros

    Health Benefits and weekly pay. Descent starting pay as well. Days off are helpful especially when you have 2-3 days off.

    Cons

    Low team effort and communication issues. Some merchandisers come in for the pay check and lack organizational skills. This makes it hard for the next person.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern

    Pros

    Pay was on the higher end compared to other internships, interesting work being in the beverage industry, not your typical office job (you wont be sitting at a desk for 9 hours a day instead you'll be in the field meeting with customers and placing orders), typically ended early on Fridays because we were not eligible for overtime (this may be a pro or con depending on who you are)

    Cons

    A LOT of driving, early mornings and long hours, management was disorganized in the plant I was in, decent amount of physical labor, became repetitive toward the end (i.e shadowing the same person every day)

    Advice to Management

    A more clear job description to incoming new hires; new hires should be aware of the physically demanding work they will have to do (i.e moving cases), that it is not a typical 9-5, more often than not they will have very early mornings, you will need a car and expect to add a lot of miles to that car, what is expected from you during and after the internship.

    Pros

    Compensation, coworkers, you had the option to join or not join the union

    Cons

    Management, old rider jacks , little advancement

    Advice to Management

    Think about and listen to all of your employees, there are a lot of good ideas coming from employees that never get approved.

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation and good support. from superiors This is a good resume builder and preview into a job as a District Sales Leader at PepsiCo.

    Cons

    They seem to put an emphasis on "work-life balance" but it does not reflect the company. People work 60-65 hour weeks and have extreme hours (in the middle of the night sometimes, too). Internship was not what I expected either- a lot of manual labor.
