Topics regarding layoffs at PepsiCo Inc. (Pepsi)
I'd say a lot, but who am I to judge, right? Sales meltdown continues, if this was me I'd be fired. https://www.bevnet.com/news/2017/pepsico-sees-beverage-sales-slip-q3
Is it really true that we may have job cuts in Purchase.
Here we go baby!!! Who's getting cut?
Was just told that layoffs will occur in large numbers just before Thanksgiving. You have to love that. Hit everyone right before the holidays. Has anybody else heard anything about this? It would be good to know if there is any credence to this... read more
Leadership within Pepsico has definitely been lacking. You only need to look at our CEO who believes she is somehow better than everyone else. The reality is, her focus on creating a lean company is the right thing to do. However, Indra has failed to... read more

No one gets a package anymore! They convert us to Cognizant employees and Cognizant dumps us through "benching"...a practice where they pay us to find another position at another account because you've trained someone in Chennai to do your job for... read more
This is long overdue. The vast majority of managers at Pepsi hired people merely so that they could justify their own jobs. What the higher levels of management did is still a mystery. One revelation for certain is that management existed merely to... read more
We continue to cut here -10% by November. I hear each department is being asked to cut 10% of expenses. I'm also hearing the 70 rule. Add your age to your years of service. The closer it gets to 70 the more likely it is you will get caught up in the... read more
Yep, I'm hearing pretty well substantiated rumors about a November action in Plano HQ also. November seems to be the date that gets repeated among employees who overheard or know something, and around the boards I've been checking. It would be nice... read more
Anyone know whether rumor about Chicago IT moving to Plano is true? Also rumor about cuts in Sept/Oct??
Every time a new vp/pres is announced we have layoffs. How many this time?
This would be good for the shareholders, just like Nelson Peltz was who lit a fire under Indra. There is still an unbelievable amount of non-value add BS to cut all around the Pepsico empire but the current management is blind to it and/or just... read more

The rebadged PepsiCo workers with Cognizant are being benched. This means they will no longer work for Pepsi and have 7 weeks in which to find another position within a different Cognizant account. Problem is, Cognizant is not helping with the search... read more
Put these two together - one from two years ago that shows the cause of the problem at Pepsi, one from yesterday showing how the problem is beginning to be recognized and addressed by our government... read more

Called it in my post below on getting the word out to media outlets. More air time on this disgrace is a great thing. Next prediction. Indra will leave the company soon and with her the senior management swamp will be partially drained. Her and... read more
"Don't worry we're just here to work!" "We're going to back soon. Our family's are overseas, we just want to make a little and go back!" "We're just like you, what are you guys racist or something?" "Nah, our good friend was definitely the best fit... read more
Phily - this will get bad - link:
Been hearing that something is going to happen in the next few weeks
So Indra talks lot about diversity. So let us talk. Explain how systematic replacement of already diverse IT work force with one made up of fewer american citizen and more of SINGLE foreign ethnic group diverse ? Because that is what happening with... read more

Everyone, We need to make our collective voices heard on this issue. This disgrace against American workers has to stop and there are platforms to do it. I have connections at Breitbart and other alternative media outlets, and I will tweet directly... read more

And so it begins! An untold number of rebadged Pepsi employees that have trained our replacements have gotten an email that our last day on the Pepsi account is 12/31. We have been moved into the "Customer Deployable Pool." We have 8 weeks in which... read more
It's hard to predict things, but folks are saying that there might be cuts in Purchase.
I heard that they're collapsing CIO and ACS again. (THAT split was a bonehead business move.) And, of course, more offshoring.
It may be a well-duh! moment for most others, but I just found out... Our severances were already paid by PepsiCo to the outsourcing companies at the time that the outsourcing contracts were signed. Pepsi was the one that requested the 80% reduction... read more
