    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    PepsiCo offers some of the best mentors out there!

    Cons

    Too much process bogs you down from doing the real work...they need administrators to fill this gap.

    Advice to Management

    Need more admin to support sales and operations staff.

      Former Employee - Brand Manager 

      I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

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

      Cons

      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.

      Advice to Management

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