Poor business practices at PepsiCo

2.50

Company Culture

Company cares more about shareholders than employees.

Support from management

Actions speak louder than words.

Teamwork

You will be out there by yourself yet they will say you are part of the Pepsi team.

Freedom to work independently

Everyone must perform and look the same.

Internal Communication

Continuously finding out information late in the field.

Gender Equality

We all are paid the same.

Attitude towards older colleagues

At times it feels more like they want you to throw your fellow employees under the bus. We are constantly pitted against each other.

Career Development

There are plenty of routes you can go here

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is decent but even with raises the cost of healthcare has went up so your pay from 10 years ago may be less or equal to your current take home.

Office / Work Environment

Very stressful. You will be held accountable for things which you have zero control over.

Environmental Friendliness

They do a great job about looking towards the future of our planet.

Work-Life Balance

Expect to get emails 24/7 as well as phone calls on your days off. Also your shift does not end until the job is done. 15hr days are not unheard of.

Company Image

With changes every year we have become a laughing stock to our competitors as well as customers.

Job Security

At any moment you can be let go for your performance. That can be said at most jobs.

Handicapped Accessibility

Meetings are held upstairs with no wheelchair access. I have never seen a handicap person do the job personally.

Workplace Safety

They talk about safety but it is not uncommon to have to lift and reach or lift and twist to perform the job. The back rooms are too small to do it otherwise at times.

Challenging Work

Every day is a challenge.

Inclusive / Diverse

They do hire a very diverse group of people.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Vote in a union. We need representation

What I like about the company

I like the physical work.

What I dislike about the company

I dislike my pay as well as benefits. The changes never benefit the employees. The turnover rate is ridiculous.
