    - Great Medical Benefits
    - Friendly Employees
    - Work From Home Capabilities

    Cons

    - Long hours without additional compensation
    - Significantly more work than is expected of role without compensation
    - IT isn't a clear focus of PepsiCo when it comes to emerging technologies and people shouldn't work for them if they want to work on cutting-edge projects.
    - IT Full-Time Employees are slowly being converted to business analysts, under the assumption of no technical skillset. This drives away a lot of young, and talented employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listen to their employees and guide them in a direction or department that better makes them happy.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits, 401(k), work on your own without direct supervision , steady work

    Cons

    Performance Pay !!!, lack of direct management and the few that stay are worthless, No seniority..... the longer you work here the less you make , Zero appreciation for frontline employees, performance pay has created an “hostile “ work environment, turnover of employees is out of control with this new pay

    Advice to Management

    Your house is only as strong as it’s foundation , this applies to your business as well!!! Treat your people (Rsr) with some respect .. Scrap performance pay before your business caves ... YOU ARE NOT TO BIG TO FAIL and it’s crumbling fast

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

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits.
    Good product and huge potential for growth.
    Great resources for sales information.
    A lot of good people who care about what they do.

    Cons

    Growth is limited due to meeting region targets instead of localized targets.
    Direction from the top at times is unrealistic. Don't coorelate market trend to volume plans...markets are trending down, Pepsico's goal trends up.
    Difficult to maintain customer relations when forcing product into stores it doesn't belong.
    Key Accounts seems to have weak relationships with buyers.
    Micromanaged spending. Pepsico does no want money being spent.
    MEM department is very weak.
    Too many people leaving the company...little scary.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the MEM problem.
    Create cash incentives for reps to hit volume targets.
    Units need more flexibility when it comes to spending.
    Visit the locations. There needs to be a Regional Sales Manager presence at least once a year to come down and grade the market performance.
