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

    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.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than an year)

    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.
