    Pros

    PepsiCo is a great company with great people. There are a lot of smart intelligent people who mostly like to get the work done without an excess of BS.

    Cons

    The culture is competitive. Individuals are often left to their own devices to succeed. Definitely not for everyone- at least at corporate. Also, the business is very segmented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work to break down silos- both functional and sector based.

    Pros

    You will never be bored, internal mobility, surrounded by very smart people, constant change, a company you can be proud to work for, work/life flexibility, we make fun and delicious stuff!

    Cons

    Constant change, but slow to change, need to co-locate NY based locations, further breaking down of sector silos, more international opportunities for junior staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move Somers closer to Purchase,

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, professional environment, opportunities for advancement for sales reps, innovative products, fantastic product portfolio. The pay is decent. Opportunities to telecommute as needed. College grads with no experience earn great money and can be moved up the ladder quickly.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are mostly in the sales field, while much fewer opportunities for non-sales related positions. Annual merit increases are very minimal for a multi-billion dollar corporation. Advertising dollars spent to hire celebrities to promote our product is disheartening especially since that money if re-purposed could be used to hire thousands of people to sell our product and would have a larger ROI. Technology updates are sometimes lacking. Virtually no training is available regardless of position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on dollars spent for celebrity endorsements and instead invest that money into the employees for training, technology tools, or even utilize some of the money to have better pricing for our customers. Work harder to recognize everyone at all levels and not just the sales force.

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for advancement if you are willing to move. They like to hire from within rather than to bring in outside resources. Lots of bonuses to be had based on performance.

    Cons

    Compensation was great for the work expected but not when compared with working in other industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It should be common sense, but management should look to match interns with managers who are directly involved and impacted by the assignments of the intern.
