    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

    A lot of opportunities for growth. Provides several different avenues for career development. They had competitive pay, and allowed me to be flexible throughout the internship. I was able to shadow and work in several different departments even if they weren't necessarily in my field.

    Cons

    Often times, you have to seek support for your project rather then get it from your manager. HR is super disorganized, and some people have mentors and others don't. You won't always get placed with a manager who has time for you, and they'll be the ones filling out mid-year and end of the year reviews. Especially at the plant I worked in, team members would constantly tell me to work elsewhere rather than Frito-Lay (with the caveat that other plants may be better).

    Advice to Management

    Better organized and standardized programs across locations.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    PepsiCo had a lot of opportunities within their various departments for me to learn and grow. They offer competitive pay and the ability to have a flexible schedule during the internship. Friendly work environment where everyone is willing to help you.

    Cons

    This summer wasn't the most organized as far as schedules and events go. Experienced some difficulties receiving support from management with summer projects at times and had a hard time scheduling meetings with upper management and being able to follow up on issues and implement changes.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support to the interns as this would help PepsiCo become a potential future employer. Take the time to create summer project opportunities that we are able to accomplish in the duration of the internships while also allowing one to learn and grow within the company.
