Current Employee - Senior Manager in Plano, TX (US)

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

Pros

Large and recognized company name globally. Lot's of open positions listed across the globe.

Cons

Hard to move up due to people staying (or scared) to move to other departments, then being laid off or worse...their jobs being sent offshore. No real alignment on work-life balance programs. Telecommuting is done on a "case by case" basis; meaning if you Manager likes you or not...

No opinion of CEO

    Company is being run by someone who views the employees as a number and has complete disregard for tenured employees.

    Pros

    Great products.
    Great employees
    Nothing else.

    Cons

    Senior management are puppets.
    Company really believes that the products are healthy.
    bonus structure a joke compared to the industry.
    constant restructuring.
    actuary scientists are the only secure job there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Indra. Compton has already flown the coop and he was the only decent person left there. Everyone should have had the big eye opener during the 08 and 12 layoffs. Get out while you can!

    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.
