    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Good benefit, big brand name, good variable, immense opportunity of learning and a very nice incentive structure(for sales).

    Cons

    I am working in a Premium dept of Pepsico, company has very less interest or you can say least bother about Premium dept, too much of process involved in small small things, too much of data work/reporting/mails, some time I feel am a Statistician, very long working hours, no personal life in Pepsico

    Advice to Management

    Kindly focus on ground level, front line peoples and also on Premium dept

    Pros

    1. the working hours are flexible(i.e you wont be expected/asked to work after 6:30) but in case your work isn't complete by 6:30, you would be expected to do it at home.
    2. Free Snacks
    3. Pay seems adequate

    Cons

    1. Too much work pressure; currently I am handling the work of 3 people who have resigned and no replacements hired yet
    2. Contractors are alienated & treated as "bottom class".
    3. Contractors are considered dispensable & maybe terminated anytime.
    4. Managers delegate ALL work to contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on developing your Contractual staff.. They are already contributing a lot in the success of the company and can do more.. if developed and given the respect and dignity they deserve...
