    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great opportunities to develop analytic skills and relationships with many different levels in the company. Clear growth and promotion tracks. Decent flexibility in work schedule in HQ roles. New challenges were always popping up that kept the job fun and interesting each day. People were great to work with- culture is friendly and supportive but everyone is competitive for results, which pushes people to work at their best.

    Cons

    A bit on the hierarchical side, compensation not always tied to the actions they say they want to promote or are tied to uncontrollable manufacturing processes.

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

    Pros

    Extremely supportive and really treats interns well. Huge amounts of resources allow them to really wow their interns. HR is very supportive.

    Cons

    My manager and mentor were hard to get in contact with, so I felt a little lost sometimes. Not knowing exactly the scope of the internship made it difficult to work at my maximum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the interns know what you expect them to get out of the internship. Try to guide them better and not just ask how its going. As an intern I knew almost nothing about how the company operates, the industry, or how a DSL is supposed to act. I felt like my project was unique so I couldn't even ask other interns for help.

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

    Pros

    A fantastic experience that allows for managerial and analytical skills growth. Receiving a real, value added project allows for collaboration and individual work with co-workers and managers. The opportunities to get involved were endless, and the people were fantastic.

    Cons

    The time frame for the internship feels to short. With the learning curve involved in entering a new company (or the workforce) as well as formal training involved, it can feel like the internship is winding down before it really begins. When I finished the program, all I could think about was what more I could have accomplished with a few extra ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job and continue to challenge new employees!
