    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexibility (work/life balance). You own your own career, but managements supports you.

    Cons

    Restructure and layoffs almost every year. Jobs moving outside of the country. It’s almost like walking on egg shells not sure if you’re going to be laid off. Just count your blessing every day you are working here.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of focus on front line and management. Not much support or recognition for your support team (admins, coordinators, analysts).. these people work long hours to make the front line & management look good to the customer. Recognize them!
