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

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please act a bit more positive and appreciate the employees the work they do.
    zero motivational factor exist in pepsico.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    not very transparent performance review

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.
