    1. Famous brands
    2. Good work life balance
    3. Friendly atmosphere

    1. Many people do not care about their responsibilities because the company is quite friendly to people. The common answer is "It is not my job". It took ages to get a response from colleagues.
    2. Crony approach for career promotion. The leading positions in my country were taken by family members and friends of the CEO.

    1. Make sure that employees understand the principles of the corporate culture
    2. Be candid with career advancement

    Rate of Promotions at Junior level is comparatively

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    PepsiCo takes real good care of its employees. They pay really well. The focus is a lot on learning. They have excellent processes in place.

    Cons

    It is a very large organization so often the implementation of processes varies a lot based on who you are working under.

    Advice to Management

    You would get honest feedback only when you are candid with your people. In PepsiCo usually the senior management expects a sugar coated feedback, this is quite detrimental to the growth of the whole organization.
