Company Culture

My tenure in the organization is 12+ years, and I am no longer surprised to see the constant dishonesty, lacks of ethics, corruption, immorality, and above all the unethical behavior of leadership. Back on February 13th, 2018 the company laid-off some stellar performing employees in the most inhumane way. The leadership told the employees not to travel on February 13th, and then around 8:00 a.m. in the morning, employees who were being impacted by the lay-offs were dragged out of their offices and tossed out of the building. Some of these employees were stellar performers but they just happened to be either a minority ethnic group, different sexual identity, or happened to be progressive politically. I do not understand why anyone would want to have a job with a company that does not possess respect for humanity, destroys careers of hard working honest employees and their families. This a company that should be boycotted by good American citizens for its lack of treating good American citizen employees with any type of good morals. I ask all of my good morals employees to speak up about this toxic dishonest company!

Support from management

Does not exist, as the management is occupied drafting layoff plans, as oppose to growing the topline. Plus some of the managers are using their position with PepsiCo to run their political agendas using PepsiCo IT resources, working on oppressing and persecuting employees who do not agree with their unethical agendas.

Teamwork

Very poor as most employees are competing against one another for the same bonus, or pay raise.

Freedom to work independently

That's actually one of the few bright spots but it is due to management lacking the understanding of the business.

Internal Communication

Unprofessional, and in most cases demonizing unless you are part of the internal secret unethical leadership club!

Gender Equality

The leadership tries to promote women but not LGBT or people with different religious believes Jews or Muslims.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Seems okay.

Work-Life Balance

Could be good as you get to leave half a day on Fridays.

Inclusive / Diverse

This organization destroyed the careers and lives of many minority employees and it is a shame to see anyone buys the unhealthy products of this company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Change the current R&D leadership with professional, honest and qualified citizens.

What I like about the company

Nothing really, very unhealthy and poor business model.

What I dislike about the company

The dishonesty of its leadership, and the fact that they target high performing employees because they happened to be different in either sexual orientation, religion, or political views.

Company Culture

Highly Toxic Culture Leading to No Meaningful Shareholder Business Contributions

Support from management

The older Frito Lay management been pushed out over the last five years, and the new management lacks experience, and interest in understanding the business.

Teamwork

Highly variable but you could find yourself in internal competition as there are many "climbers", who are not interested in the results but more in the promotion.

Freedom to work independently

Very good if you know what you are doing but make sure to get the okay from your boss at every step of the way as the organization is highly micro-management.

Career Development

Only for select few based depending on who you know and not on merit and IQ.

Office / Work Environment

Toxic politics, and no business vision leading many employees to constantly look over their shoulder fearing layoffs.

Work-Life Balance

Very good.

Job Security

Very poor in R&D due to the company lacking the ability to grow the topline and the business leadership to constantly cut jobs to improve the bottom line to meet Wall Street approval. I recommend the company leadership to spend more time on growing volume.
