    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.

    Need more admin to support sales and operations staff.

    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.

    I have been working at PepsiCo as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Top shelf management team to work with.
    Very competitive wage and bonus program.
    Great home work balance with flexible scheduling.business cycle
    Stable position regardless of the economy. I've previously worked in the defense industry and had to deal with their business cycles. People drink Pepsi in war, they drink it in peace, they drink it with the economy good, they drink it with the economy bad. It just doesn't get more stable than this;-)

    Cons

    Too easy to pack on a couple extra pound drinking free Pepsi, LOL!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing what you're doing because it's working.
