    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..

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

    Pros

    Very welcoming and friendly culture. Focused on personal growth across the company. Full time employee's were always busy. As an intern there were times where I had to search to find work to do. Dependent upon the project. Great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Full time usually start off on 2nd or 3rd shift. Not amazing work life balance due to plants operating 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loved how management was so transparent and involved all the way down through the company!
