    Challenging and interesting - and a great place to grow as a leader

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsGreat leaders, freedom to set your own path, results-driven, genuine commitment to doing business ethically and responsibly, good focus on diversity, great flexible working practices, super place for working Mums (and Dads), international opportunities for high flyers, and a fun, collaborative work environment.

    ConsIT infrastructure is terrible - making improvements, but lack of innovation and connectivity on core infrastructure is frustrating. Formal learning opportunities not well publicised, but there if you go after them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more and be more visible... and in some cases, more authentic.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The role involves a huge workload but the pay is not competitive with other simillar roles in London.

    Global Mobility Analyst (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsGood brand recognition
    Good in your resume

    ConsHuge organization with lots of processes, bureaucratic organization
    Management is not trained to manage people so there are many managers with no people skills.

    PepsiCo UK & Ireland - A view from the Head Office

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Theale, South East England, England

    ProsThe culture at the UK HQ in Theale is friendly, fast-paced and fun. There is a big focus on performance, and a robust (if slightly complex) way of measuring it. Ad-hoc recognition and reward are regular occurances. There are some fantastic benefits, including what must be one of the last final salary pension schemes in the UK. They've had a big focus on flexible working in recent years which has paid off with quite dramatic results.

    ConsIt's not a culture that will suit everyone. There is an extremely high quality bar, and the pace can be exhausting. The biggest and most pervasive problem is the IT infrastructure which is in major need of a revamp. It does the job, but it is disjointed and there is still a lot of things you would expect to be automated that are still done manually.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSort out the IT systems - it'll save money and make everyone's lives easier in the long run!

    Outstanding work environment

    Talent Acquisition Senior Manager (Current Employee) Plano, TX (US)

    ProsThe people at this company are top shelf. Not only do I work with the best and brightest but I enjoy them from a personal standpoint. This is a place for people that are high-energy and want to win. The company continues to evolve from a food and beverage standpoint which is exciting to see. Salary is extremely fair compared to the rest of the market.

    ConsWorkload is huge but that's what you sign up for when joining the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to evolve from a healthy food and beverage offering.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frito Lay Route Sales

    Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO (US)

    ProsEasy job. Route bid at 53,000. Easy to grow routes if u follow behind lazy people and there are many. Consistently make over 73k and up to 78k. Company does cut routes and u must grow accounts again or u might drop back down into the 50's. Free shirts, royals tickets, chiefs tickets. Benefits are good! 401k, pension (not available for new employees anymore), vacation.

    ConsEarly starts and route cuts. Company received Herman Lay award (most prestigious). Rsrs received jacket and management got trip to Cancun, Las Vegas and some a trip to Fiesta Bowl. However, if u want to be part of management , u can apply anytime so stop complaining. Many people have hard time with management getting rewards.

    Marketing: Great to build a resume

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Albany, NY (US)

    ProsGreat company to build a resume, network and learn fundamentals. Ability to work on national brands as well on innovations.

    ConsNorth America business always under fire. Morale is negatively impacted. I question if salaries and benefits are competitive enough to maintain talented newcomers as well as seasoned producers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic on work life balance offerings and support. Senior management must lead by example.
