    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    Having PepsiCo on your resume
    Ability to learn about processes and systems if proactive
    Great amenities
    Inclusive culture
    fun perks
    True work/life balance

    Cons

    Organization has too many layers of management which causes poor communication between divisions. Too many middle managers execute initiatives properly.
    Lack of accountability amongst middle management
    Only way to increase salary significantly is to leave and come back
    Since 2008 economy has weakened premium brands (Quaker & Gatorade)
    Middle management will slow growth by discouraging acquisition of additional responsibility
    Large disparity in talent amongst peers
    Will often promote on tenure over acumen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decision makers are afraid to actually make decisions because of yearly workforce reduction. The company needs to become more lean to foster sustainable growth. There is also too much overlap amongst job responsibilities. Organization needs to make sure that employees have ability to learn other portions of the business to create value. Make sure you weed out poor managers that create unhappy counter-cultures.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    benifits are ok that all i can think of

    Cons

    route cuts, upper management olny comes around once a year but expect everything to be perfect ,broken promises,DSL only care about numbers,product priced to high to compete so this hurts RSR pocket, zero work life balance, constant change of POG and no help to do it with, most routes had 7 to 8 stops a day now its 10 or 12,put all volume on one route and do not spread out, force to work stores more than they need causes increase in stales which inturn hurts RSR pocket

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the salesman some room to make decisions that will grow the market,then take the routes and make them smaller that way we can spend time trying to sell all the shippers and other add you all come up with. I challenge any of you to get on a truck for a week, and those of you that did run a route in the old days with seven flavors and one rack in each store, give it a try now, and no one should be my boss unless they have had at least two years on a route a college degree only means that he or she went to class when they needed and passed the exam they had to.
