    Pros

    The company is a good company if you are at the right location. Very political in nature. If you are in the in crowd you are golden. If you are not apart of the inner circle you might as well be happy in your position or use it as a developing tool.

    Cons

    Senor leadership is all about you kissing the right behind. It's not what you know but rather who likes you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and take notice of the good people in the organization before you lose them. Stop putting all your stock in college new hires and value your workers on the floor doing the work.

    Pros

    Relevant global company that used to be a fun place to work. Well recognized brands and products. Great opportunities for diversity candidates.

    Cons

    Upper management spread too thin and communication lacking. Internal selling and politics overtake moving the company forward. Not enough time available to analyze the business and spend with customers. Company does not always place best qualified person in positions as they seek to add diversity candidates. A lot of reorganizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of unhappy employees. Listen to employee recommendations and attempt to change the culture.

    Pros

    the pay is more than adequate that's about it

    Cons

    don't expect to move up very much in company unless your part of the boys club favoritism abounds in this place management treat you like common street urchin never accepting blame foe their faults and passing the buck and undermining their fellow employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get your heads out of the corporate b hole and take responsibility for your actions man up and say something when you think a process is unfair to employees and do not blindly follow the corporate mentality

    Current Employee - Merchandiser in Nashville, TN (US)

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The starting pay is pretty good when compared to most other companies, day one benefits, one week paid vacation and 24 hours of PTO after 6 months of work. Below average 401k, they match 50% up to 4% of your total pay so they will match up to 2%.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rate so most of the time we are understaffed. You are rarely ever in the same store twice, so you will be cleaning up whatever mess the person behind you left. There is rarely communication between sales, delivery or even between merchandisers and supervisors, you hardly ever know what is going on in the stores you're going to be working. Deliveries show up late almost every day. Stores are upset with inconsistent and lack of service, so they will take that out on you.

    Great money and benefits. Insurance and 401k. Schedule is flexible. Early mornings mean early afternoons
