    Former Employee - Sales Strategy CCO in Purchase, NY (US)

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing office culture and developmental opportunities. Full-time job offers were extended within two weeks of internship completion. Leadership gave constant feedback with desired results, however we were all left to work our projects as we saw fit. This was key to see who really "fit" in with the PepsiCo culture. If you are willing to work, leadership is willing to help you grow.

    Cons

    Timeline of job placement (job offered, but long delay before assignment). Additionally, you usually accept salary, then get location assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the GREAT WORK!

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generous with sampling new product, company logo wear, and bonuses for the entire plant as a whole. Very flexible with work schedule and work provided a variety of tasks. This was anything but redundant work. Also had the greatest managers with many, many years of experience in their field with Pepsi.

    Cons

    Amount of work was more than could be done in a typical 40 hour work week, but no overtime was allowed. Deadlines were very clear yet hard to meet due to the excessive amount of work to be completed.

    Pros

    Great leadership experience, sales experience and exposure to the daily operations that make this company thrive!

    Cons

    No cons, honestly! This internship program is like no other in the country, they give you a real project that is a real problem in the company and provide you with the flexibility, resources, and knowledge to implement your own creative solution, hands on! They really value what your bring to the table and are enthusiastic about young talent in PepsiCo, they view you as the future of this Fortune 50 company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and your commitment to making the Pepsi Culture inclusive, supportive, and tightly bonded.

    Pros

    Great Place to work, Great Work Life balance, competitve pay

    Cons

    Hard to know where you stand if you are not one of the selected few to promote. People are chosen to follow a certain career path and performance is not necessarily valued unless you are one of the fortunate people pre-selected to be developed.

    Pros

    Easy work, freedom, decent co workers, not stuck in the same place all the time get to move around a lot, money was good until this past year......took a 20k pay cut

    Cons

    high stress, hours, impossible sales plans, low pay, company stopped caring about its employees cut pay across the board just so they could pad their pockets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start focusing on employees again....things were good when you cared about the front lines

    Detailer for Frito-Lay (part-time)

    Current Employee - Detailer in Merrillville, IN (US)

    I have been working at PepsiCo part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Starting pay ok, unsupervised environment

    Cons

    Limited to 20 hour work week except during various holidays. Very few advancement opportunities. Assignments can vary for large stores to small lower volume stores. Walmarts stores being the hardest to work because of crowded stock rooms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should offer pay increases to part time employees. They increase part-time hours to 25-30 hours per week.
