    Former Employee - Sales Operations Intern in Charlotte, NC (US)

    I worked at PepsiCo as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    A fantastic experience that allows for managerial and analytical skills growth. Receiving a real, value added project allows for collaboration and individual work with co-workers and managers. The opportunities to get involved were endless, and the people were fantastic.

    Cons

    The time frame for the internship feels to short. With the learning curve involved in entering a new company (or the workforce) as well as formal training involved, it can feel like the internship is winding down before it really begins. When I finished the program, all I could think about was what more I could have accomplished with a few extra ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job and continue to challenge new employees!

    Current Employee - Route Sales Associate
    Current Employee - Route Sales Associate

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Given plenty of opportunity to grow career-wise, as long as you're okay with moving around
    - Company values promoting from within
    - Supportive managers
    - Huge company with a product that sells itself

    Cons

    - Each location differs at least moderately on how they work/demands on employees/supportive managers. This is common in most companies, but becomes a bit of a problem in a company that expects you to move around often
    - Although managers are supportive, I feel that I am on HR's back burner the majority of the time
    - Can be easy to get caught up in the bureaucracy of such a large company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your front-line employees when it comes to demanding more from them. Value them, as they are the building blocks of the company.
