    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are fantastic and willing to help regardless of their position. Highly collaborative culture and matrix organization means that people interaction is the key to success. Environment is fun and entertaining. Employee resource groups abound and your people engagement is just as important as your business success.

    Cons

    Tough place for introverts given the nature of the collaborations. Despite being dependent on sharing, technological and software systems do not support culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing technological tools to improve collaborative efficiencies. Also consider designing specific workspaces for creative collaboration and ideation as well as solitude and more cerebral individual processing.

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing office culture and developmental opportunities. Full-time job offers were extended within two weeks of internship completion. Leadership gave constant feedback with desired results, however we were all left to work our projects as we saw fit. This was key to see who really "fit" in with the PepsiCo culture. If you are willing to work, leadership is willing to help you grow.

    Cons

    Timeline of job placement (job offered, but long delay before assignment). Additionally, you usually accept salary, then get location assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the GREAT WORK!

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generous with sampling new product, company logo wear, and bonuses for the entire plant as a whole. Very flexible with work schedule and work provided a variety of tasks. This was anything but redundant work. Also had the greatest managers with many, many years of experience in their field with Pepsi.

    Cons

    Amount of work was more than could be done in a typical 40 hour work week, but no overtime was allowed. Deadlines were very clear yet hard to meet due to the excessive amount of work to be completed.

    Pros

    Great leadership experience, sales experience and exposure to the daily operations that make this company thrive!

    Cons

    No cons, honestly! This internship program is like no other in the country, they give you a real project that is a real problem in the company and provide you with the flexibility, resources, and knowledge to implement your own creative solution, hands on! They really value what your bring to the table and are enthusiastic about young talent in PepsiCo, they view you as the future of this Fortune 50 company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and your commitment to making the Pepsi Culture inclusive, supportive, and tightly bonded.
