    Pros

    I was given the opportunity to work at a company (Frito-Lay) that allowed me to start as a PT employee and work my way up to a FT management position. All employee's at all levels are expected to contribute to the success of of the site which contributes to the overall successes of the company. Excellent culture designed to provide personal grow and the opportunity/expectation to work in all business areas.

    Cons

    Some long days and travel.

    Pros

    PepsiCo offers a wide variety of opportunities for anyone interested in being part of a Fortune 50 company who constantly challenges the way we do things, looking for ways to improve. This performance driven organization rewards excellence with advancement opportunities and more challenges to improve and develop others along the way.

    Cons

    As with many organizations, PepsiCo always looks for ways to reduce costs and delivery sustained results. One way of achieving this is to reduce the number of leaders and spread the work among those who remain. This can create challenges to maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe one thing that has made PepsiCo strong is the direction our corporate leaders are taking us. I do not feel it appropriate to offer my senior leadership team advice without their direct request for it. My local leadership team, myself included work hard to maintain the integrity of PepsiCo and what it stands for.

    Pros

    The pay for the work that you do is really good. Health benefits are pretty cheap but cover almost everything.

    Cons

    There is really no opportunity for growth, managers have been there for 15-20 years and more than likely won't be moving to move up in the company. So unless you plan on moving a lot then you are most likely stuck where ever you get hired

    Pros

    Fast paced environment that bases performance off of your results. Challenging environment that requires good time management skills and communication to perform as expected. Excellent management that pushed me to my limits as an intern.

    Cons

    Long hours and and many follow ups daily. Can be exhausting for a college student not used to a fast paced manufacturing environment. Steep learning curve.

    Current Employee - BIS Intern

    Pros

    The intern program is supported by several employees, both analysts and managers/directors. The company starts you out with a support network, and it's on you to build it further. The pay is great and there's a lot of fun events with other interns/employees. So many employees around you have lots of experience, so there's a lot of opportunity to engage in knowledge sharing.

    Cons

    Not enough of a formal training program, and not enough formal attention given to technical growth. If the internship had maybe a couple group sessions on developing some type of skill, such as web design or some basics of SAP, everyone would for sure walk away with more tangible skills to bring to their future roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the attention towards the internship program. Everyone in the world wants to feel important, interns included, and while it may not necessarily contribute a great deal towards the bottom line, investing in the interns is equal to investing in the future of the company.

    Current Employee - R&D in Valhalla, NY (US)

    Pros

    It is clear that PepsiCo values its interns greatly, from day to day interactions to large events. The internship program is organized well, giving the interns an opportunity to meet company leaders, learn different aspects of the company, and have a great time doing it. By the end of this summer internship I find myself hoping to work for this company in some way shape or form because I believe in the leaders of PepsiCo as well as the high standards PepsiCo strives to achieve.

    Cons

    PepsiCo is such a large and global company that communication can be difficult. For example, many times a question gets sent out and bounced around to multiple people before the question is able to find the appropriate person to answer the question. Considering the size of this company, this is rather expected.
