    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The Pay and the Benefits

    Cons

    Upper Management don't know what the staff on the ground are working on, or their value ... only see top dollars saved. A lot of unnecessary micro management. HR beliefs (always talking about the people culture, but not actually living the values).

    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

    Cons

    Rate of Promotions at Junior level is comparatively Very limited roles available as compared at HQ level

    Keep up the good work of enhancing benefits to the employees it would be great, if new roles are created in junior level for non-sales category not only in HQ but also for other geographies
