This internship program is like no other in the country, they give you a real project that is a real problem in the company and provide you with the flexibility, resources, and knowledge to implement your own creative solution, hands on! They really value what your bring to the table and are enthusiastic about young talent in PepsiCo, they view you as the future of this Fortune 50 company.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generous with sampling new product, company logo wear, and bonuses for the entire plant as a whole. Very flexible with work schedule and work provided a variety of tasks. This was anything but redundant work. Also had the greatest managers with many, many years of experience in their field with Pepsi.

    Cons

    Amount of work was more than could be done in a typical 40 hour work week, but no overtime was allowed. Deadlines were very clear yet hard to meet due to the excessive amount of work to be completed.

    On-boarding process went very well

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL (US)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Being new, I don't know too much yet. The on-boarding process was fairly smooth. They did a good job with the orientation and my manager had everything ready to go to get me started day 1. The perks are great. Free oatmeal in the morning at the Plaza in Chicago, cheap on-site health club, etc.

    Cons

    Everything is VERY corporate. There is a set way to do everything. Being new, it has been challenging to learn the right process and who the right people are to talk to. Some people take for granted that a newcomer may not know all the right procedures. LOTS of bizarre acronyms are used. They even joke about it in the orientation.

    Pros

    Incredible global company w/ huge depth of experience, opportunities for advancement, and ability to explore different areas of the company throughout your career.

    Cons

    Due to the ever-changing 'rotational' nature of positions at PepsiCo, there are some issues w/ continuity / knowledge transfer but that is a trade-off they appear comfortable with.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    PepsiCo PAMPERS their interns. We were taken on numerous field trips, and got to have weekly lunches with senior leaders of the company. We were given real projects that were stimulating and had the opportunity to connect with many of the employees.

    Cons

    Many of the employees at Pepsi are extremely busy. As an intern it was sometimes easy to be overlooked or pushed off when other more pressing issues arose.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and willing to explain how things work. I always felt like I was contributing to the company with my work.

    Cons

    It's a fast paced work place, so you have to keep up. The management is always busy, so they are sometimes not as atentative to your needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more feedback from the work I was doing would have been nice.
