    I worked at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    The company goes the extra mile to recognize those members who have contributed to the success of the company. It was refreshing to see this sort of recognition and emphasis on teamwork. The company also stressed the importance of work/ life balance and gives its employees the tools to achieve this goal.

    Cons

    The company seems to be in a perpetual state of reorganization, especially in its R&D and compliance/safety groups. This has lead to the promotion of individuals who have little to no management skills. As a result, some people in positions of authority lack the management training, maturity, and experience to be effective; direct reports receive little training or the support necessary to progress their careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a defined curriculum for those individuals you recognize as potential leaders and start training them early. Emphasize corporate etiquette (was behaviors are and are not acceptable in the work place). Success as an individual contributor does not mean they should or will be successful as a manager.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best part of the job is being able to work independently without someone breathing down your back. As an hourly employee you can work your route daily without worrying about commission and meeting a quota. You work as part of a team with 1-3 route sales representatives. Early start times.

    Cons

    You work every holiday except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Starting out you could be working weekends. The benefits have increasingly gotten worse year to year. The unscheduled pay raises are an insult. No bonus, incentives or review of your performance whatsoever. They lay off the good district managers in favor of recent college graduates who have no idea what their doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company distributes multi-million dollar brands and dominates the market share yet your front line employees can hardly make a comfortable living.

    My advice for Frito Lay specifically would be to break off from Pepsi because the soft drink business is holding the entire company down.
