    PepsiCo UK & Ireland - A view from the Head Office

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    It'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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    The money is incredible.
    DSL's are usually willing to help you out whenever you need a hand with displays or anything else.
    A large company so you're not looked down on.
    Great benefits.

    Cons

    Very long days. Up to 16 hours depending on your route. So, not much home life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a former employee burns bridges with their accounts, don't ask/expect/put it on your new employee to smooth things over with those accounts. That's why you're there.

    Pros

    PepsiCo has a great team and everyone makes you feel at home and helps you every time you need. It's a very dynamic company since they're always adapting its structure to the market. There is always something new to do, therefore the job is never boring

    Cons

    The only not so positive topic that I can mention is the salary, which, in my opinion, should be higher.
