        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Family environment within smaller branches. Compensation is competitive in some positions. Comprehensive benefits and retirement package.

        Cons

        Upper management will claim your successes as their own to get ahead. Moving up within the company usually requires relocation to an undesirable area and a massive pay cut. Work life balance expectation is unrealistic, expect a lot of phone calls while on holiday or days off. Company is very hesitant to hire and it results in employees getting extremely burnt out and bitter to the point they leave.

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

          Pros

          - Great team, everyone was very approachable and friendly - Ambitious culture / go-getter attitude - Promote from within: huge learning opportunities and you're encouraged to keep growing - Ability to move to different cities and they offer great relocation packages - Good compensation package, which included base salary, bonus, and pension plan

          Cons

          - Some areas lacked job clarity - Victim of their size: no one really knows what anyone else is doing. Frustrating when working on nation-wide projects. - Lots of ambiguous situations: they know the end result they want to get to, but not the process of how to get there, so you're met with a "just get it done" response more often than not. - Workload: they try to mitigate this with time management training, but it's...

            I worked at PepsiCo full-time

            Pros

            Pepsi is full of fantastic intelligent people that enjoy having fun and achieving excellent results. Working there was fun and the vibrant atmosphere made for a rewarding learning environment

            Cons

            The frustrations were the technology and systems were not always the most sophisticated and like any large organization, office politics can cloud decision making

            Advice to Management

            Continue being transparent and communicative with employees to ensure career development opportunities are identified and put into action
