It is very flexible for families and time off needed to tend to that. On the other hand, if you're single, then you often work A LOT as your coworkers with children go to Halloween parades, kid's doctors appointments, etc.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. There are pros and cons, just like any job. Sometimes the red tape gets in the way of doing actual work, but this is often done to prevent lawsuits. And while I have had good reviews, the promotion and ranking/rating system is not transparent and is quite arbitrary.

Pepsi is a very male dominated culture. There is a strong focus on increasing diversity and hiring on more women. Men tend to be paid more than their female (and more successful) counterparts

It's burn and churn. Lots of turnover within first 3-5 years of employment. Long hours (55+/week) are the norm. Travel is the norm - particularly in Frito Lay.

Long hours. Lots of travel. Must move every 18-24 months to advance career.

Lots of women here, but very few females and minorities in high level positions. Of those women in higher levels, most emulate male counterparts by opting for mostly male and mostly non-monority staff.

Work/life balance depends completely on the support of you manager/function rather than corporate policy. In general, I have found the men I worked for to be much more supportive than other women.

Life outside the office is not valued. Still very much a boys network on the beverages side of business. Company is trying to change their culture but it is very slow and not coming from executive levels where women are sparse.
