    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 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.

    Pros

    Great group of folks on the floor. A lot of potential for personal achievement. You are given a lot of free reign to experiment and try new things.

    Cons

    Visibility and communication is something left desired. HR has a tendency to cut your legs out from under you. There is a lot of front line management turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what the folks on the floor and resources are telling you and make more of an effort.

    Pros

    People. I really enjoyed the people i worked with. They are all welcoming, and are very helpful. The work culture is great.

    Cons

    There is no room for advancement. You have to work long hours until you get your job done. I was only an intern, so i was there to learn and move on. Get as much experience as possible
