Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"First 10 years were wonderful - last 10 a nightmare!"

What do you like about working at PepsiCo?

"Centrally located - beautiful grounds outside. For the most part the associates that have been with the company for years are great."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Ask many questions - on your position and growth within the company - force them to answer and don't be afraid to challenge!"

What don't you like about working at PepsiCo?

"Definite disparity in workloads! Hard working loyal associates get rewarded with more work - but not more compensation. Every year there is some type of downsizing so you walk around wondering if this year it will be your turn! Morale is so visibly poor these days because of the heavy workloads and arrogant mentality of senior management."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Re-occurring word depicting work environment in corporate - TOXIC! Do something to turn that around - you can't keep using the BE THANKFUL YOU HAVE A JOB mantra - one of two things will eventually happen - 1. the economy will get better - and people will go onto other companies, 2. talent will eventually just leave - there is only so many times people will allow themselves to be abused!"
