    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Mutual respect between all levels of staff, great pay, wonderful culture of community, visibility for projects is fantastic

    Cons

    To play hard you have to work hard, so all employees expect a lot out of each other. You must be aware of that going in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to let employees play with their ideas more freely.
