Machoculture is something I'd change at PepsiCo

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

There is a very cliquish environment in Latin American and the Caribbean where male senior leaders are not accountable for behaviors that are a deviation from PepsiCo governing principles. They are not penalized and ultimately good talent goes out the door especially women and minorities. The company operating culture is a lot different from its stated culture and while diversity is embraced in principle it is still yet to be truly integrated and operable within the business units especially in LATAM.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

I'd describe PepsiCo's culture as very competitive where employees are always looking for a leg up sometimes at the expense of each other. Very cliquish and sometimes depending on the division, not enough senior managers to balance the inexperience of younger managers who are sometimes misguided and a little too competitive.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

The CEO, Indra, is a strong leader and her visions are great. It is a large company and filtering her vision in culture will take time, however, it must be bonded with accountability so that those who deviate do not continue to thrive because their business results are good. Difficult company to advance in as an African American.

Employee - Director

There is no scope for an alternative point of view. Competence is frowned upon as it leads to insecurity in the leadership.

Employee - Director

All important policies, codes etc., have been articulated but none are being followed. Hugely disappointing to see a woman CEO protecting male leaders for sexual offences just because it suits her game.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

The old boys network in which the food division always got promoted over the beverage one. Ironic given PepsiCo was first and foremost a beverage company.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Very US-centric way of working, even outside the US. A very macho culture where early starts, late finishes, and presentee-ism is the norm. There was an expectation to conform to being "Pepsi-perfect" and other ways of working were dismissed out of hand. If you were male, from the food side of the business, and willing to work 12+ hour days and conform to the "Pepsi" way you were in; if not, an excuse was generally found to get rid of people

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

You need to be prepared to work long hours at the office, working from home or flexibly is actively discouraged, and you need to be able to conform to the norms of the company culture. It will help if you have a food rather than beverage background and an advanced degree.

Employee - Director

Very competitive environment, teamwork, empowerment and results oriented.

Employee - Director

Its culture and understanding it is probably one of the most vital things to working here.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Commit into actions the "diversity and inclusion"statement, lot is said but on a smaller scale level anything happens.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

There are two environments, the managers/director/VP close level and it is like an exclusive club only few belong to (mostly men), but even when you do not belong to that team, there is the other one in which you can live freely if it is OK with you thar despite your merits, you have few carrier optios by not belonging to the exclusive club. So it is a company you can work, do your things and manage projects for your own personal enrichment feeling, and this develops some sort of "passive" belonging, which is manageable if you can live without being part of the huge league.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

It allows you to work on your projects and they evolve smoothly, no one is there to block your way like in other companies I have worked for. This nurtures the sense of being able to acomplish profesional tasks with inner support driving belonging and self confidence. The only caveat is that things change in terms of organizational decisions which requests a huge effort of adaptation and flexibility and to be able to cope with changing management and leadership styles.

Employee - Director

Innovative Trend Setter Strong brands Strong performance Inspiring leaders

Employee - Director

It's a place that is very fast moving, competitive (in a good way), and collaborative. Only improvement would be a stronger feedback culture.

Employee - Director

You won't go wrong working at PepsiCo. It is one of the premier CPG companies to work for.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

If given a chance I would like to encourage leadership to focus on building future leaders from within the organisation.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Company has a very employee friendly work culture. As long as you are delivering well, you have freehand in your job and when you face difficulties in doing your job, leadership is always available to guide and help.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

This company cares for people who work hard and are poor in politics, people who are otherwise are taken care off. This instills a culture of performance and healthy competition.
