I think PepsiCo has given up on layoffs

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

Outsourcing - The Beginning Of An End?

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

Loyalty

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

A Salute

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

PepsiCo Culture

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

Who is left in IT ??

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

Pepsico Offers Billion Dollar Senior Notes??????

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.

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?

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.
