    Awesome team, but no chance of promotion in level.

    Trainee (Former Employee) Bucharest (Romania)

    ProsGreat team, good company values, friendly enviroment, supporting with all employees.

    ConsNo further promotions of employees even at small levels, very few trainings for all employees, small salaries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevise salary levels regarding old/new employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Supply Chain Intern

    Supply Chain Intern (Current Employee) Irving, TX (US)

    ProsFast paced environment that bases performance off of your results. Challenging environment that requires good time management skills and communication to perform as expected. Excellent management that pushed me to my limits as an intern.

    ConsLong hours and and many follow ups daily. Can be exhausting for a college student not used to a fast paced manufacturing environment. Steep learning curve.

    Lots of opportunity

    BIS Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsThe intern program is supported by several employees, both analysts and managers/directors. The company starts you out with a support network, and it's on you to build it further. The pay is great and there's a lot of fun events with other interns/employees. So many employees around you have lots of experience, so there's a lot of opportunity to engage in knowledge sharing.

    ConsNot enough of a formal training program, and not enough formal attention given to technical growth. If the internship had maybe a couple group sessions on developing some type of skill, such as web design or some basics of SAP, everyone would for sure walk away with more tangible skills to bring to their future roles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up with the attention towards the internship program. Everyone in the world wants to feel important, interns included, and while it may not necessarily contribute a great deal towards the bottom line, investing in the interns is equal to investing in the future of the company.

    Global Procurement MBA Intern

    Global Procurement MBA (Current Employee) Somers, NY (US)

    ProsThe people are the best part of working at PepsiCo. There is a reason that most of the people I worked with this summer have been with the company for 15+ years. Additionally, the company still has a lot of room to grow and change and you can very easily and quickly make those changes a reality through your work.

    ConsThe procurement internship is relatively new so it is not as structured as other internships. The downside of the above-mentioned point about employee satisfaction is that people stay on for longer so promotions might take more time.

    Good Culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOpportunities to advance. Good entry level pay. Management respects need for work life balance.

    Consadvancement largely left up to you. Pay as you progress becomes less appealing until you make it to the executive level.

    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.
