    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Flexible working hours -Casual dress code -Good defined contribution pension -Great culture, friendly people at all levels -Finish at 2pm every Friday -Free products each month

    Cons

    -Career progression is almost non existent in Cork. Regardless of how well you perform, promotions don’t exist; you need to wait for someone in a more senior role to leave their role to apply for it - and that’s assuming you’re interested in applying. -Opportunity does however exist to work remotely from Cork into more global roles, and to relocate internationally - both of which will progress your career, but... advancing your career in PepsiCo being based in a team in Cork is not possible, so very much a stepping stone for most people based on this. -Lots of people in management roles for many years. Blocking lots of people. Due to the above points - these people aren’t going anywhere either, but they acknowledge and accept that, which eliminates opportunities for everyone else. Lots of people in roles for 5+ years. -Because people have worked there so long, the management team have little insight as to modern processes and technology. Most processes are very outdated. Difficult to get these changed internally.

    Advice to Management

    PepsiCo do a great job at recruiting top talent, but do absolutely nothing to retain them. Good place to work, but an ambitious employee will never stay longer than 2 years.
