    Lack of advancement opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be understanding of your sales team difficulties in selling in new displays and trying to merchandise product. It is a lot of work and makes the sales aspect of the job difficult to complete.

    I have been working at PepsiCo (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Relevant global company that used to be a fun place to work. Well recognized brands and products. Great opportunities for diversity candidates.

    Cons

    Upper management spread too thin and communication lacking. Internal selling and politics overtake moving the company forward. Not enough time available to analyze the business and spend with customers. Company does not always place best qualified person in positions as they seek to add diversity candidates. A lot of reorganizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of unhappy employees. Listen to employee recommendations and attempt to change the culture.

    Pros

    the pay is more than adequate that's about it

    Cons

    don't expect to move up very much in company unless your part of the boys club favoritism abounds in this place management treat you like common street urchin never accepting blame foe their faults and passing the buck and undermining their fellow employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get your heads out of the corporate b hole and take responsibility for your actions man up and say something when you think a process is unfair to employees and do not blindly follow the corporate mentality

    Current Employee - Merchandiser in Nashville, TN (US)

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

    Pros

    The starting pay is pretty good when compared to most other companies, day one benefits, one week paid vacation and 24 hours of PTO after 6 months of work. Below average 401k, they match 50% up to 4% of your total pay so they will match up to 2%.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rate so most of the time we are understaffed. You are rarely ever in the same store twice, so you will be cleaning up whatever mess the person behind you left. There is rarely communication between sales, delivery or even between merchandisers and supervisors, you hardly ever know what is going on in the stores you're going to be working. Deliveries show up late almost every day. Stores are upset with inconsistent and lack of service, so they will take that out on you.

    Former Employee - Quality Control Supervisor in Cairo (Egypt)

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

    Pros

    Pepsico is a people oriented environment in which one can maintain his work life balance through many tools , one of it is the flexible working hours system as the traffic in Egypt is a very unpredictable that may cause disturbance. Team Work is a character that i really enjoyed during my internship period . It allowed me to interact with different people & different functions yet, comfortably since they were all cooperative & coaching the new comer here.

    Cons

    At Pepsico Egypt, there's no personal growth unless you have a great support from Top management or equivalent regionally . And for this issue , i have more than two cases by name. This management support for promotion or recognition of an employee is irrelevant to the employee's real experience, perseverance, leadership characters or even success. Promotion & recognition are depending on JUST a Personal Preference from an upper management rather than Logic professional evaluation technically or HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency in promotions & recognitions of achievements must be stressed upon & highlighted especially with technical people in order to sustain the growing talents & current experts who empower the core business process..
