    I worked at PepsiCo (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a nice place to work

    Cons

    Signed a contract with IBM to shift most of the work and the employees took a pay cut then many were cut altogether.

    Your jobs aren't secure either.

    Pros

    Great work environment for the most part. I'm able to be autonomous without being micro-managed in my position. Work flexibility as well.

    Cons

    The hours can be excessive at times and often working some weekends is needed to stay on top of things. Whether viewed as good or bad, adapting to change is absolutely necessary with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very diligent, seeking solutions and very cost conscience. Try to always keep the employees in mind when preparing cost-cutting measures.

    They have great benefits. It is a good company to work for.

    Pros

    Pepsico is a great company. Forward thinking, environmentally conscious, top product portfolio. Good benefits. Passionate and dedicated employees.

    Cons

    The CSC in Winston-Salem is an extremely stressful call center "jail" with ever increasing measures, constant monitoring, no flexibility,
    no time to do quality work, very low pay, no loyalty and disregard for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as the professionals they are and the CSC will be better positioned to meet its mission.
