    I worked at PepsiCo (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent leadership team. PepsiCo cares for employees and takes the time and resources to develop its labor force.

    Cons

    Benefits were best in the world. I feel PepsiCo's benefit are not a major differentiating point.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great job. Keep the leadership on social causes and keep the journey to make PepsiCo products healthier.

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly people. Excellent retirement savings. Pay at Frito-Lay higher than other similar companies.

    Cons

    Terrible when it comes work and personal life balance. Only getting one day off a week wears a person down.

    Advice to Management

    Train new incoming managers on people skills and how to effectively communicate with work force.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn new things and work in many different functions. Groups with good leadership do a good job of creating development opportunities for employees. Benefits and perks are pertty good (health, dental, 401k match, on site gym and health clinic).

    Cons

    Finding your next role can be difficult if you don't know the right people, so networking within the company is a must. Work/life balance can suffer depending on which group you are in.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, good benefits, two days off in a row, three weeks vacation a year. Overall good company to work for

    Cons

    Very repetitive, you're constantly moving around. The only break you get is when you're driving to your next store. I work 10-12 hour days. If you're not an active person and have a problem with sweating while working then this job isn't for you

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

    Pros

    You're given the ability to manage your own day, the job is good exercise, and a little integrity goes a long way with management. As long as you do your best, you'll only leave on your terms. The benefits are fantastic if you've got dependents, and the vacation days a year grow with each you stay. It's a great place to get a couple years of straight truck experience. (BUT they've only got automatic trucks in their fleet)

    Cons

    Other than routing yourself, the job can be a little mindless. Really physically demanding labor, you can expect to unload ~3-5 tons of water a day. Sometimes, those guys are going up stairs. It pains me to say so, but if you've got no dependents, the hourly wage makes this place a stepping stone (unless you can consistently bring in new accounts, they do offer bonuses for that, as opposed to quotas).

    Advice to Management

    When I applied for a route with Dowser, I thought I could solve all their problems if I were only afforded the opportunity and an open ear. Now, I see that most of the direct management does everything within their power to enable and motivate their workers. Sometimes, you just don't have all the tools you need.

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

    Pros

    Flexible days to help coach and lead sales teams. There are online trainings you can utilize to continue to develop yourself.

    Cons

    The company puts a lot on the sdl. You receive calls from customers 7 days a week and it work life balance truly isn't there. Typical day consists of 6am-5pm. Lots of pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and staff up. Continually worry more about the bottom line rather than the employee. Has become a tough company to work for.
