    Pros

    PepsiCo offers some of the best mentors out there!

    Cons

    Too much process bogs you down from doing the real work...they need administrators to fill this gap.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good learning environment with solid processes in place to maintain the forecast. Central to the supply chain as advise forecasts volumes for each manufacturing plant. Opportunity to work cross functionally with other teams such as Supply Planning, Procurement, Sales and Customer Service.

    Cons

    Daily work can be monotonous and repeatitive with the publishing of the same reports and processes daily. Career progression talks can be false with middle managements fundamental drive to hit KPI's. "The only thing that matters is improving forecast accuracy".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good start would be to develop a relationship with their employees rather than to continually demand results.

    Pros

    Descent earnings for someone without a college degree. Good Benefits. Not stuck in a cubical.

    Cons

    Hope you like working on holidays. Hope you like waking up at 3:30 am.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to recognize good talent when you have it, and stop living up to some 50/50 ideological split of college recruits and home grown talent. It will leave and you are going to be left with an unproven "rookie" to grow your business.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Money, benefits, knew what to expect of the work that was tasked of you. Co workers were great people, even in a union environment. Overall it was a good job to have.

    Cons

    None really. I worked graveyard so that's the only thing I can think of that was bad but I actually enjoyed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Team Leads controlled the show, they answered to management
