    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.

    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.
