Generally, I've found my coworkers and supervisors to be very supportive - but PepsiCo moves at an incredibly fast pace. I have flexibility to work from home, but I also work 10 hours most days.

    My day-to-day needs for flexibility and time off are respected, and I generally feel very comfortable with exercising these needs. Where it gets tough is managing my workload, which is always increasing. I might take a day off for a family obligation, but it's inevitable I end up working that night or throughout the weekend to make up for it.

It truly is a great place to work. Equality doesn't even begin to describe how the company truly makes you feel. If you work hard, it is noticed. They give you all the tools that you need in order to succeed and they are willing to do what they can to help you move forward in your career.

    Management is always willing to listen! If you have something going on, all you have to do is plan ahead. Make sure your work is done, and they are willing to accommodate almost anything.

The benefits here are not great but this is the first company I've worked for that doesn't feel sexist. I believe women are paid as well as men and that promotions and job opportunities are given to both men and women equally.

    4 paid / 8 unpaid

    Parental leave policies here are very antiquated and I only got 4 weeks of paid time off because I didn't give birth myself (if you adopt or use a surrogate, you only get 4 weeks of PTO). Even if you do give birth, I think the PTO is still very limited.

PepsiCo is very mindful of the gap between males & females in the workplace, so there are a lot of extra initiatives that push female presence and involvement.

    I think in general, just increasing diversity by employing more females into the workplace. That seems to be an issue/hurtle across a lot of different corporations, so I wouldn't say it's PepsiCo-specific.

There are many female role models in the business, demonstrating true leadership, but some appear to be pretty stressed much of the time so I'm undecided if it's a good thing or bad to get further promotion when I'm already stretched.

    The company has a lot of flexible working practises which many are able to take advantage of which is great, however some individual roles receive extreme pressure to get tasks done, usually requiring them to work additional time when many others have long gone.

You need to know what is important to you - and how/where you would draw the line for your own personal work/life balance. The company is driven and will take all that you give and never tell you 'that's too much' - so you need to make sure you say it yourself. They always respect that answer of 'that's too much' but you have to be able to articulate it yourself. If that is the case, it is a great place to work.

    Flexibility doesn't mean I'm always 'on' - there has to be times when I am off work totally. we must respect that. Flexibility is also very much manager dependent. It needs to be more of a cultural acceptance, beyond individual managers.

    10 paid / 6 unpaid

    12 wks FMLA with standard 6/8wks paid (depending on birth) and 4/6 wks unpaid. Additional 2wks were offered as PepsiCo paid family leave to be used within the first 6 mo after birth.

    Maybe. Depends on the age of their kids, the role they are entering and personal limitations/factors in their life.

Speak up and be visible. Do the informal networking and get to know people at work events and other. Keeping your nose down and getting your work done is not enough. Have a respected mentor that will speak up for you during people planning / annual reviews. If your function is primarily male, then it is best to have a male mentor in this situation.
