    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You will work with the best and brightest, you have constant opportunities to train and improve yourself, if you enjoy change and setting your own path they give you that flexibility, ....you will be held to high standards and will need to demonstrate your ability to deliver results.

    Cons

    The pace of change and accountability, sometimes without the right resources, can be challenging. Resulting in a need to personally find a balance between your work and personal life.

    Pros

    Not much to think of here.

    Cons

    Practice Human Right's and Labor Laws in Alberta, Canada. Figure out a more accurate quota system. Stop bullying employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice Human Right's and Labor Laws in Alberta, Canada. Figure out a more accurate quota system. Stop bullying employees (practice what you preach). Don't post everyone's quota results which ultimately can leave certain employees feelings less about themselves and their work ethic (When the truth is the system is flawed). C'mon this is common sense. Instead of posting everyone's results for everyone to see, go over employees performance in private if there is an issue with there performance. Fix your flaws instead of blaming the hard working employees breaking their backs for 1/5 the amount of money you make.

    Great company, hired me while knowing I was looking for another job. Easy work for what you get paid. Can't complain at all.
