    Pros

    Pay is great
    Superiors generally decent, many will help advance your career if you show initiative.
    Very steady and predictable job day to day and schedule.

    Cons

    No 401k match, barely a pension.
    Supervisors seem to be a bit overwhelmed.
    Low morale. Given the pay and level of work not being as heavy as it used to be I'm surprised how many complaints my co-workers come up with. I guess this is what the union does to people-gives the entitled mentality. Half these guys milk an hour or more of OT a day-pathetic!
    Also-machines here suck.

    Advice to Management

    Inspire us. I've worked at other warehouses where entire crews had pride in their work, even competing amongst each other. I feel like I'm around a bunch of little kids who can't see how good they have it. This is largely management's fault. None of these supervisors has risen from the ground up from loader position. I feel it's critical to have a person we can respect, and who respects our efforts.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good still.

    Cons

    I have the most seniority out of 3 of us in the building. This performance pay is supposed to be based on seniority. Its not. Both guys currently in the building have less then 5 years and are making more than me who has over 10 years. Their routes just happened to be performing well when we switched over. They didn't want folks to lose money but when you say the pay is based on seniority it should be based on seniority

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits which is mostly for putting up with the cons listed below.

    Cons

    The hours, which includes staying over 12 hours for training. Management is constantly changing from one position to another like musical chairs. The supervisors have no idea how to do your job, and getting a break is almost impossible. Management plays favorites and there is no sense of teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and give emplyees feedback on a regular basis. Do mandatory trainings during the employees 12 hr shift so they don't have to stay later. Learn how to do your employees job so you know how much they actually do, and promote teamwork.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong culture, very inclusive. People at all levels have a lot of autonomy and ability to make decisions on everyday work. Fun brands and fast pace - no day is ever boring or the same. Leadership in general is great at setting and executing long term strategic goals. Benefits like paternal leave and retirement contribution are better than most places. Purchase HQ building renovation was very well done, beautiful office space and vibe. Great opportunities to advance if you're willing to move.

    Cons

    Very high expectations of employees, which is good in some ways but deflating in others. Often very focused on results and put the positives (i.e. HOW you got those results ) in the background. People get promoted out of availability (who's willing to relocate first) versus capability. Don't do a great job of making "key contributors" feel valued when they are the ones keeping the ship afloat - all the energy and resources are put towards the "high potentials" who usually leave the company after a few years anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate HQ needs to do a better job of recognizing the masses. You can't get formal recognition unless you do high level global work - that doesn't do much for motivating people who are still working hard and getting great results in the less "fancy" roles. Take some time to really listen to your steady eddy's, in a company that is constantly changing those are the people who keep things going. Practice what you preach on internal mobility by offering more opportunities for remote work or not forcing relocation to get promoted.
