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

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent wages and some employee discounts. I love my team and supervisor! Every team is different and in order to get over time you have to work on the opposite team.

    Cons

    Long hours and some of the management team is very inexperienced, some of them are rude and will curse at you and very unprofessional

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Great benefits, good work environment.

    Cons

    It is very hard to move up from the frontline. Lot of outside hiring for positions people with experience can do.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for upward mobility for the frontline employee who works in all weather, every weekends and comes through when you need it most. You made it here, make way for them too.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The job is stable and consistent. The benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    The hours are very long, expect to work 55 hours or more. The majority of management was hired straight out of college, and received very little on the route training. As a result there is a disconnect between immediate management and front-line.
    Senior management makes very bad decisions that have a negative impact on the business, and blame the front line for the failures.
    The company as a whole promotes a culture of "us vs them," that leaves the front line employees feeling disenfranchised, taken for granted, and abused.
    Senior management sees experience as a negative when looking to promote. Favoring instead people with little experience but with an "education."

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Your front line is full of knowledgeable, capable, hardworking associates that would serve as a great benefit for the company, that are routinely ignored because they don't have the same connections, (eg went to the same college as senior management, or was a member of the same Greek house).
    Invest in technology. The equipment that is in use by your associates is going on 15 years old. Meanwhile our competitors are using the newest technologies and sales applications.
