Featured Review

Former Employee - National Account Manager

I worked at General Mills full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great Culture, brands, teamwork. Good balance of commitment & fun.

Cons

Politics with head office and European innovation centre

Current Employee - Commercialisation Manager

I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

All colleagues are highly professional and excellent at their jobs. Ways of working are as important as the work itself. Colleagues are supportive and encouraging, although top notch work is... expected at all times. Very flexible and understanding when home life demands creep in to your working day (nursery pick ups etc). Promotion is based on excellence - all senior leaders are there for the right reasons and provide excellent value add.

Cons

I suppose a con could be that if you're not excellent, you'll be managed out of the company. Although for those left, this is a positive!
