Nice place to gain experience, but no work appreciation.

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Old Kanpur

I have been working at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

ProsYou learn a lot here... If you are looking for an experience in marketing, this is definitely a plaxe to work in, but you have to be a workaholic if you choose this company.
Certainly, experience counts. better place only for top management.

ConsIf you looking for an SIP, sorry to say you won't be getting any stipend or even the conveyance allowance. The work can be a bit exaggerating at times.
No Motivational factor.. They just make you work, thats it.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease act a bit more positive and appreciate the employees the work they do.
zero motivational factor exist in pepsico.

Proscareer opportunities, global brand recognition, values, not very hierarchical

Consnot very transparent performance review

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees in individual sessions in confidence more often, and provide mentorship to all, not just the "stars". Mentorship should be with a skip level leader, not only one's direct superior.

My experience with Pepsi has been an overall good experience, but you have to fight for what you want.

Supply Chain Associate (Current Employee)
Burnsville, MN (US)

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

ProsDecent pay and as much or as little overtime as you want.
Positive work atmosphere and room to grow.
Great company to start your career with and use as a stepping stone.
Great 401K match 6%
Health benefits aren't bad either, even though I do not use them.
They is plenty of room to grow with a high turnover rate in management, so long as you are politically correct for the job
Many free and discounted programs, car rentals, costco memberships, financial planning many opportunities

ConsVery political and company when it comes to promotions
They don't seem to want to utilize there best employees when it comes to promotions
They take a college degree to such a high regard that if you don't have one you don't stand much of a chance
     against someone who does
They tend to "play" their employees in order to get what they need out of them, by giving empty promises or false hope.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to let people make or break their own career a little more. There tends to be a lot of micro managing, and not wanting to look bad by endorsing someone for the next step. Let people climb the ladder that have proven themselves instead of strategically keeping people in place when they are ready to move up.
