Great

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at PepsiCo

Pros- Competitive Benefits and Compensation packages
- Great training and development programs
- Opportunities
- Culture of Hardwork and constantly striving to beat out the competition

Cons- Work life balance

It is a fast/tough industry to stay competitive in. It demands early mornings as well as long hours. However you have the opportunity to create measurable results that you can be proud of

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to motivate employees

Great company

Bulk Account Representative (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWell balanced beliefs in hard work and family time. Excellent benefits and great people to work with. Most of the management and your coworkers become family. They are always genuinely concerned about your life.

Consthere are not many cons to working for PepsiCo. Just long hours at times, mostly due to holidays.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. This has been one of my favorite employers. I know at times the restructuring of companies hurts. But you have tried to have as little impact on families as possible.
