    Pros

    Good salary, flexible hours (not for all jobs but in sales - yes), overall good company, well known company.

    Cons

    If you don't work and work hard, you don't succeed at all. This company takes EVERYTHING you've got. They give you 3000 tasks, tell you to accomplish all and then don't give you the tools to do the job. Customer complaints are a daily issue no matter what job you work.

    Advice to Management

    This company is shareholder driven. Management has no control over anything we do. It's all about the stock holders and keeping them happy and we all know it...so managers, just be realistic with us.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good with work life balance

    Cons

    Forget advancement based on value contribution to the company. It's based on who can butt kiss the most. Management is awful and just looking out for themselves. They repeat the same mistakes over and over and attempt multiple reorgs hoping that will fix things but it never does.

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

    Pros

    Stable, internal movement encouraged, people are generally humble, well regarded in CPG space, great company to start a Marketing career

    Cons

    Extremely hierarchical to a fault, bureaucratic - it takes a long time to initiate change, baby boomer mentality, strict adherence to old school processes, poor onboarding experience, culture is weak, heavy reliance on PowerPoint, many people in managerial roles in areas where they've had no previous experience

    Advice to Management

    Improve onboarding, recognize and appreciate generational differences, everyone in salaried positions in corporate locations should be eligible for a bonus, make virtual meetings the norm rather than the exception

    Pros

    The money is great, but that comes with a big price
    They give you free soda that is about to expire

    Cons

    Forced to work 50 plus hours. Very disorganized company. Never know your next weeks work schedule until the Friday before. You will work 10 plus hours a day, most of the time, 6 days a week. Sales reps always blaming merch's for being lazy. Never get off weekends (busiest days are Thursday through Sunday). It takes a physical toll on your body. So many people are quitting so it's making it even harder for people that stay

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a structured system to run the merchandising department.
