    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Awesome staff who are motivated and want to help you get great results
    - Best products, so you are respected by retailers by whom you work for
    - Great team culture, where people can be themselves and don't take it too seriously.
    - Wide range of opportunities to develop your sales skills, negotiating skills, FMCG knowledge and many areas which can lead to other opportunities.

    Cons

    - Everyone will have high expectations for your products and will hold you responsible
    - Customers are already familiar with products so have preconceived perspectives of their potential performance.
    - Will require much from you, and can sometimes have objectives that may not suit every problem in your territory.

    Advice to Management

    I had an amazing manager with 30 years experience. Our team did not have a culture of excuses and falling short of our responsibilities. This was difficult at first because I had been in teams where things were not up to scratch, so it was a shock to the system. I ended up loving it, however, because when the expectation is high, and you meet it, there is incredible freedom when you know you've done things properly and are continually meeting the deadlines/targets/expectations you can rest assured you are doing the right thing. Great team, great management, and this job have set the agenda for my career moving forward. I'll always be grateful, as I started as an RSR and worked very hard for just over a year before I was promoted and honoured for my work and now have a much better outlook on job prospects and career progression. Thanks, PepsiCo and the East Anglia team as well as the West London team.

    Interview

    Applied through a recruitment agency. Called for an Interview in about a week time with another week notice. Line manager and a HR person conducted the interview. It was a really good interview process. One of the best ever been to. Very casual environment. Was not difficult at all compared to some of the others been to, at the same was not easy either.
