    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.
