    Demand Planner

    Demand Planner (Current Employee) Sydney

    ProsA 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Frito Lay Route Sales

    Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO (US)

    ProsEasy job. Route bid at 53,000. Easy to grow routes if u follow behind lazy people and there are many. Consistently make over 73k and up to 78k. Company does cut routes and u must grow accounts again or u might drop back down into the 50's. Free shirts, royals tickets, chiefs tickets. Benefits are good! 401k, pension (not available for new employees anymore), vacation.

    ConsEarly starts and route cuts. Company received Herman Lay award (most prestigious). Rsrs received jacket and management got trip to Cancun, Las Vegas and some a trip to Fiesta Bowl. However, if u want to be part of management , u can apply anytime so stop complaining. Many people have hard time with management getting rewards.

    Marketing: Great to build a resume

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Albany, NY (US)

    ProsGreat company to build a resume, network and learn fundamentals. Ability to work on national brands as well on innovations.

    ConsNorth America business always under fire. Morale is negatively impacted. I question if salaries and benefits are competitive enough to maintain talented newcomers as well as seasoned producers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic on work life balance offerings and support. Senior management must lead by example.
