I am relatively new to PepsiCo. The atmosphere was very tense at one point that I thought there were going to be layoffs, but it didn’t happen. Hypothetically speaking, aside from earnings reports or missed revenue goals, what else may be the signs... — read more
Also, provide the logic behind your grade
I have more work to do than ever. Stress is also greater than ever. How much has your workload increased lately? I certainly do twice as much work compared to last year.
I can't help but feel that all this pressure on employees, which in my opinion is greater than ever, is for the purpose of making as many of us as possible leave voluntarily. Perhaps someone will say it doesn't make much sense, but that's my... — read more
Are we really saving money by sending American jobs overseas?
PepsiCo manages by fear because it knows that many here think they can’t find a better job. That is not correct. The only problem is that most people start looking for new opportunities only when they hear some rumors about possible cuts. Why is... — read more
Hearing a restructure. They are centralizing admin tasks again. Getting data about what each one does. Cuts coming.
I mean the serious stress which a lot of employees here are exposed to every day. I believe that if some statistics were made on how many PepsiCo employees suffered from serious stress-related illnesses, the data would be very worrying. I wish I... — read more
Now that I can finally leave, I'll make sure to tell everybody willing to listen what kind of place PepsiCo is. I've spent two years having to deal with an incompetent manager with no people skills, desperately chasing unrealistic goals, and... — read more
Honestly, I was hoping to get the package and leave. I haven’t gotten the package yet, but I’ve gotten more work than ever. I am overloaded and under so much stress that it's become unbearable and next week I'm planning to quit. This seems to be a... — read more
Why do so many people here write that PepsiCo is a big red mark on resume?
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10768403/Black-Pepsi-sales-rep-accuses-company-overlooking-talent-looks.html The sales rep penned a scathing resignation letter to company CEO Ramon Laguarta, citing discrimination as the reason behind his... — read more
I am panicking on how I’m loosing money on my 401k. I have a feeling recession will be next and I will lose it all. Should I withdraw now but pay that huge penalty but at least have enough to pay off my house?
I don’t believe there are many who aren’t trying to get out of here. However, I have been trying for a long time and it's starting to demoralize me. I don't know if others who found new jobs much faster are just luckier or if the problem is... — read more
Cheaper workforce will not solve the problems that PepsiCo has, but the leadership persistently thinks that a cheaper workforce is the solution for everything. Of course they will continue to hire cheaper labor as long as the job gets done, but, is... — read more
I have long thought that severance is the best way out. I longed for severance pay to finally get out of this disorganized place and I've noticed that many want the same. But isn't severance just temporary happiness? Perhaps it's wiser not to wait... — read more
Let's get real here. Until the entire leadership team is replaced with executives who know what they're doing PepsiCo will remain doomed. The incompetent bunch we have right now is the root of all of our problems. I wonder what else they need to do... — read more
What is the time frame to axe the GMAS and Leads? Will they offer admin roles to them?
And another department pushing to Mx and/or India..
The more things change, the more they stay the same. PepsiCo closing Barrington research facility, laying off 78 employees and transferring more than 130... — read more
After the layoffs, admin support moving to GBS, and not backfilling a colleague, I am so overworked. I recently attended a conference and discovered I have 2-3 times the workload as people in other companies. I have complained about my workload... — read more
A Japanese company and a North American company decided to have a canoe race on the St. Lawrence River. Both teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance before the race. On the big day, the Japanese won by a mile. The North... — read more
Indeed, I would love to be laid off. Besides, I think there are a lot of people in Pepsico who want the same thing? I'm too tired and too sick of this place, so it would be great to get paid to leave. Unfortunately, PepsiCo seems to be putting... — read more

Commodities and external pressures are out of control. Impossible to grow enough to solve for life. Pepsi is smart. They're going to react. Anyone hearing anything?
It's devastating that I'm still in the same role I was in when I first started working here. I tried to make some career progress in a variety of ways. I worked hard, I did my best, all in vain. Has anyone here managed to make a significant career... — read more
I try not to worry in advance but I'm always thinking of other options. I don't believe there will be any layoffs for a while. Still, I don’t think my job is too secure either. I have seen many times what happened to people who thought they would not... — read more
For me, PepsiCo is the place where I get paid for putting in an average effort. That's it. It's not my family, it's not my owner, and it's not the type of employer that deserves my full attention. I'm here until I can find something better. Everybody... — read more
Why did we have to be among the last major corporations to suspend business in Russia? We took an unnecessary hit to our reputation and for what? It's similar to suing farmers for growing potatoes that infringed on our patent a few years ago. Who... — read more
I hope we don't hear new excuse for new layoffs any time soon. Some colleagues are already spreading rumors that there are layoffs around the corner. I don’t believe in rumors, but it often happens to come true. Does anyone have any insights about... — read more
The only people who advance in the company are the corporate wonks who spout the company phrases. They can be completely oblivious to the area they are supposed to "lead" and their motivations are fueled by not getting into to trouble. PepsiCo's... — read more

So many companies have already made the right decision even if it hurt their bottom line to exit Russia. Other than it being morally the only choice we can make at this point, not doing it could bring us the kind of negative publicity that will haunt... — read more
I'm tired of those who keep threatening they're going to quit and in 99% of cases, they're still here doing the same thing. If you're saying you're going to quit then do it already! If everybody who said they want to leave actually left, the... — read more
If our manager continues to bully people and HR continues to do nothing about it, I'll walk away. No notice, I just won't show up one day. Considering what I do and that there's nobody who can replace me on short notice, it'll be felt, trust me. I'm... — read more
