    I have been working at PepsiCo as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The HQ is a nice building with nice anemities such as a free gym and cheap breakfast

    Cons

    There is a sincere lack of career progression within the company. If you are lower than a certain level it takes an age to even be considered for a promotion.
    Some employees use the work/life balance to take liberties in terms of workload. There seems to be a lot of brown-nosing within the company to the point of no genuine opportunites for training or development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure people get promoted who work hard, not just the people who are your friends and good at talking

    I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    It's a great company offering a lot of good experience and a good place to start your career. I throughly enjoyed my time with them, lots of work to be done so never a dull moment!

    Cons

    Slow career progression and movement within the IT department and little chance of a salary raise. Felt like everyone was quite constrained with movement and a lack of investment made it a frustrating department to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better career progression and more competitive salary raises.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in London, England
    Current Employee - Senior Manager in London, England

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

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    IT 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 ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more and be more visible... and in some cases, more authentic.
