Beware, just discovered that HR has booked conference rooms on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Recently had a new HR rep assigned to my team in IT. She's much more involved than what I have seen in the last 10 years from other HR reps. She asks many questions such as... How my team is different from IT teams? Why do we still have workers... — read more

The irony is crippling ! PepsiCo has unleashed a public marketing campaign about Employee Appreciation Week to try and smother a wave of negative feedback from terminated employees. How can a company that is on an unprecedented insensitive employee... — read more

I have 42 years with Pepsi and I am a sales rep. I am also 63 years old. Hoping to go to 65 but I worry every day that I will be part of the 2.3 billion dollar restructuring so that they can bring in some younger campus recruits or military... — read more
It’s been almost a week since many of us could access our network share or gpid drives. Dealing with India is useless! Each day a new contractor tries the same exact method and same results. Nothing! What would take our former IT department 5... — read more
Good luck and God Bless to all affected. I was pushed aside in Feb and to be honest the weight of the world was lifted off my shoulders. Doing so much better in my new job. At least my work is appreciated and valued. I feel like an employee again and... — read more
I understand that “ It’s a job, it pays the bills” is basically the only reason that people give for staying at Pepsico. I also understand that It’s a scary world out there and finding a job is not the easiest thing, but when do we say enough is... — read more

I worked in Frito R&D 2 years ago. I was always somewhat against some of the innovation fails they put time and money into. Also, I was a proponent of not changing fundamental components for core products....(the PwP b—s—) I and soooo many... — read more
Got out of Pep around 8 months ago, used to work in IT. Have things finally settled down? Last I heard, Jody had been given the boot - is the outsourcing still a go? Miss some of the people I had the pleasure of working alongside.
PepsiCo leadership has lost the courage and intuitiveness do anything other than market dream strategies and tooth fairy promises. Now more “transformational” projects are announced. When was the last time any major project was successfully delivered... — read more
Yeah I hear more layoffs are on the horizon. Too much emphasis on offshoring and automation. All corporate and plant positions are not safe; as if they ever have been.
Who do they expect to do the work? They act like IT is completely unnecessary. Well, I can't wait for the day they figure out how wrong they were...

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
