Sweatshop with poor IT leadership

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

Pros

The pay's good. If you're hourly, you'll make a killing.

Cons

Poor management, from front-line to senior management. No willingness to improve the environment. Too many sacred cows. It's not what you know, it's how much you brown nose. If you're incompetent but suck up, you'll go far. Don't ever go to HR about manager quality, or ethics issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the failed ITIL model. The only way things get done is if the ITIL structure is circumvented. Clean house of the management layer and start over.

    Pros

    Very nice people for the most part

    Cons

    Organization as a whole does not invest in their people, and cannot manage talent. The industry is shrinking and my boss hoarded work, as opposed to a growing industry where there is more work than people to do it (and growing opportunity).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire MBAs.

    Pros

    Promotion fast, rewarding, great supply chain experience and networking...

    Plant locations and senior leadership... Not the best locations because many are in small towns with low diversity....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting people with no people management skills....
