    I worked at PepsiCo (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, Not locked in a cubicle.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. Bonus pay is based on sales goals management sets, sometimes unrealistically. 50 hours is considered basic and overtime pay is based on sales. Vacations are bid on based on seniority, and are scheduled the year before. Was once a good company to work for but I would no longer recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the salesmen. Listen to Route men and their feedback. Don't force ship product and then yell about stales. Sales goals should be clearly derived based on common practices.

    Pros

    1. Smart People
    2. Collegial Corporate Culture
    3. Great Brands
    4. Competitive Pay and Benefits

    Cons

    While the Leadership Team and HR stresses the importance of employees being in charge of charting their own career destiny, driven by the accumulation of critical experiences and success in key roles, PepsiCo is still very much a "who you know" environment. I've seen colleagues get passed over for roles by less qualified people who were more networked, connected and liked.

    Advice to Management

    There's lots of talent on the front lines being overlooked and under valued.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great opportunity if you get the chance to work in a environment like this! Fast pace things are always moving, and you have to be on you feet ! The pay is excellent, and you will learn so much about so many different pieces of equipment I could never tell someone not to take the position if offered.

    Cons

    If you do not have much or any experience working with the equipment in the plant it will be difficult for you to train in a day shift. Problems during the day keep the veterans from focusing on proper training to a new technician. Don't just throw the technician out to the sharks without giving them some structure on day to day first!

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more frequently with all technicians. The new technicians need a lot more structure in how things work, and since it is your'e way or the highway let them know how you expect things done. Maybe take time out to go over specifics also just to be sure training is being performed like it should be. If there is a problem communicate it immediately, don't wait!.
