    It's a great place to work at. Team leads and managers don't put as much pressure so you don't feel pressured at work. It's not as stressful which makes you wok better

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, professional environment, opportunities for advancement for sales reps, innovative products, fantastic product portfolio. The pay is decent. Opportunities to telecommute as needed. College grads with no experience earn great money and can be moved up the ladder quickly.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are mostly in the sales field, while much fewer opportunities for non-sales related positions. Annual merit increases are very minimal for a multi-billion dollar corporation. Advertising dollars spent to hire celebrities to promote our product is disheartening especially since that money if re-purposed could be used to hire thousands of people to sell our product and would have a larger ROI. Technology updates are sometimes lacking. Virtually no training is available regardless of position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on dollars spent for celebrity endorsements and instead invest that money into the employees for training, technology tools, or even utilize some of the money to have better pricing for our customers. Work harder to recognize everyone at all levels and not just the sales force.
