Looking on FaceBook there are TONS of complaints about their products - many have been remade to taste like cheap candy and some products like Instant Raisin and Spice Oatmeal and Puffed Wheat/Rice are just gone off all the shelves everywhere in the... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at PepsiCo Inc. (Pepsi)
Such a great example of toxic leadership in this company. By all measures, outsourcing is a significant miss. Business partners have made it crystal clear that IT service levels have dropped so far that the day-to-day processes are at continual risk... — read more
After MANY years of dedication I was let go this week.
Instead, they've decided to go the firing or "get them to quit" route. Lately, they just keep adding more work on our already overstuffed plates, bumping up the criticism levels and creating such a stressful environment that a lot of people simply... — read more
PepsiCo is learning that same lessons that Boeing is learning with outsourcing the 737 MAX Software build. You simply can’t apply assembly line mentality to IT managed services in this day and age. When misused, the outsourcing concept has two... — read more
Chicago office is moving per corporate communication to new office in the same area Does anyone have any details? What does this mean for Chicago IT ? Will Chicago be a satellite hub?
I may not have the political savvy to have warranted being a senior leader but it seems to me that the resolve for the underlying issue of terminations is quite simple. The cost of vendor resource turnover, lack of skill and communication barriers... — read more
No doubt your termination after many years with the company left you with a sense of betrayal. You trusted your leadership promise that integrity and commitment would drive a successful long term career at PepsiCo. Countless personal sacrifices were... — read more
I will never forget that day when an SVP insulted the entire IT operations team with one email. He announced that he decided to outsource because the leadership believed offshore resources could do it better, faster and cheaper. It was the beginning... — read more
Reading through these posts, it’s very disturbing how a company can claim such high loyalty and integrity standards when in fact the internal employee dismay is extremely broad and extensive. Can’t say I have much respect for an organization that... — read more
The stock price is soaring and offshore IT services are making drastic improvements. Cost cutting is on track and another major wave of employee cuts is coming right on schedule. Where have all the doom and gloom people gone that were posting on this... — read more
Just make the announcement already !
I missed the IT Town Hall yesterday. Did anything fun and exciting happen?
If indeed PepsiCo plans to transition IT to 4 major hubs, who is left? In the face of certain job loss, I would think those most marketable have moved on. That would leave two camps remaining. Those who are struggling to beat the skills competition... — read more
Anyone have any reputable info on what’s happening to Barrington? Hearing tons of rumors about the future of Barrington, or maybe the beverage teams moving to NY.
Been a few months since Pepsi announced the miracle plan of plans to make a “great” company. So how are we doing? Business partners are not happy, stock price dropped 10 bucks in 2 weeks, CIO is “retiring” mid-way into the strategy, applications are... — read more
Someone is sharing a sound cut of a certain IT director with a heavy accent insulting her own team during a lunch. Other directors were sharing the same. Absolutely disgusting how this happens behind the backs of people k–ling themselves to keep... — read more
Does getting rid of JD mean we will keep our jobs? Are the IT cuts over?
Stock price nose dives 3%. Sr VP / CIO sent packing in the midst of the critical IT cost saving strategy. Business partners are up in arms over the complete collapse of IT services. Seems the clown in the PepsiCo sewer has got himself trapped. It... — read more
JD had no clue since she started. The head mo–n is just as guilty for this mess and will be tagged as such by the business community. Leaders take pride on being tuned into the organization and being a strong advocate for processing feedback from... — read more
Bye bye and good riddance.
Name like a change of season for the leftover IT Folks looking forward to fall this year.
Heard a few rumors that NY IT personnel were laid off this week? Have not seen anything personally but would love to know if anyone saw/heard anything different so I can stop watching my back.
I hear the deal is a natural food company. Has anyone heard different?
Anybody know why Pepsico is offering Senior notes? One is one billion at 2.625% due in 2029 and another one billion note at 3.375% due 2049. Maybe it's to help with Sodastream and Pioneer foods purchase.
Now we have to wait an additional 2 weeks to find out when we lose our jobs in Chicago and other non-hub locations ?
Heard several people were notified that they are getting cut in a couple months Plano and Chicago IT
Why is it that both companies post earnings that beat market expectations, but Pepsico stock goes down and Coca Cola jumps 6% as of 12:15PM CST? Could it be that the market knows which is the better run company with the more positive business... — read more
Alright, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what has Pepsi ever done for us?
How to cause a large company to fail #200 Change the rules ("process ") midway, dont communicate, and then throw those trying to do what they can with what they know under the bus. Dont ever hope to win (be successful).
PepsiCo goes and purchases South Africa's Pioneer Foods and the stock price goes down today. Another brilliant thought out idea from PepsiCo’s leadership(supposed)
Any Chicago IT updates ? Are cuts on track for this year or are cuts delayed to next year? Last we heard a few months ago Chicago IT will be gone since they want 4 Hubs India Hub was to be up and running by 11/1 Is this on track or delayed?
Lots of closed-door meetings and a town hall at the end of the month. Anyone hearing whispers?
First they cut IT budget year over year, and then deeper mid-year cuts in the name of "productivity" - leaving people to figure out how to support systems with expired maintenance, obsolete hardware with no permitted outages, etc. When that... — read more
meetings later on this week for all employees regarding changes to DSD. anyone know what this is about?
Has anyone heard about when the R&D reorg is coming? It’s absurd that it hasn’t happened yet, it’s looming in front of us and we all know it. Very difficult to keep focused.
Could it be that PepsiCo investors are seeing through the smoke and mirrors of their way of cutting costs and not adding any value to their products? It is so much easier for these so called leaders to purge the ranks of the people who got them to... — read more
I have been with the company 20+ years and it makes me sick we still have people that are abusive to our employees. A senior director told an employee he is sick of her using cancer as an excuse. EXCUSE ME? He swears and slams doors on his employees... — read more
These posts are starting to sound like an AA Meeting. Everybody has an addiction to working for Pepsi and can’t seem to stop. Like an addict, you people come in and get your fix everyday knowing deep inside that it only leads to a dark place. You... — read more
