With the recent news on all major news sites does this mean we will have another company do all of the leg work to develop our brands?
Hearing that the entire consumer relations team in Plano at HQ was fired today. Waiting for more info. What a garbage company.
I remember five years ago when I started working here, I was so excited. I couldn't believe I landed a position at PepsiCo, I thought I was so lucky. It took me about a year to become completely disillusioned and accept this place for what it truly... — read more
If I hadn’t come to PepsiCo, I would have thought this company is great, that everything works just fine. If I hadn’t thought so, I would never have left my job at the old company and come here. Despite the fact that it is very easy to get... — read more
Was that the day you came here or the day you gave notice that you were leaving? In my case there is not much of a dilemma. I had high hopes when I first came here, but now that I’m leaving I’m much happier. I finally got a new job, and I was... — read more
The only think more toxic than many of PepsiCo products are the politics and company culture. Irrespective of the pay, if one can find a more decent environment, get out now. Who can thrive in a tank full of sharks except others of the same stripe?... — read more
This company is most specific for its leadership, which is almost never willing to take responsibility. Employees are always to blame. When it doesn't work out - it's the employees' fault and they should be cut. When it goes well - then it is... — read more
There are many who say that they found much better paid jobs after leaving PepsiCo and that the job market is much better now. Is that really true in most cases? How long have you been looking for a new job and how much are you getting paid more... — read more
Hello everyone. New here. My director during my last connect with him told me that I needed to be aware of how I was being perceived. When I asked for a specific example he said I can give you 5 and started going on how I was making others feel. He... — read more
Next week is our last week. Half the team got lateral moves, the other half left the company. Is life better after Pepsi?
I had asked my manager what the process was on transferring into another BU. He basically told me not to bother with the process because he wouldn’t approve it. Is there any way I can get a transfer without his authorization? If not then I will need... — read more
I’ve said it a few times to colleagues and I’m going to say it here. This company is heading to the bottom at a breakneck speed. It was a horrible ride and I’m glad to be hopping over to another well-recognized company known to have respect towards... — read more
Why was this not mentioned in the Town Hall?
Saying she is a risk to other employees but works remote????? Disgusting.
PepsiCo stockholders are happy today but employees who were given good reviews and small raises are dealing with prices of everything they buy going through the roof. If this company cared one bit about employees they would give a mid year raise... — read more
At the moment, I know many more people who are looking forward to being the target of layoffs than those trying to keep their job at Pepsico. The question is why is that so? Are they aware that their management has led the best employees to the... — read more
When I feel like layoffs are around the corner but they still haven’t announced anything, the motivation is zero and the anxiety is astronomical. How do you even find the will to get the job done while waiting for them to let you know if you are a... — read more
Don't we usually have layoffs in the week of or after the Fourth of July?
What is genuinely heart breaking is watching a company that invests so much time, effort and social media space to convince the world how great it is when employee testimonials overwhelmingly convey a complete lack morals and ethics. Many of us share... — read more
I wish there was some type of support group or something where we can air out ALL our grievances over the pain of being laid off, having to train our replacements every single day for MONTHS (with a smile), possibly being retained but downgraded… And... — read more
Why does it seem more and more that PepsiCo is trying to cut its way to being profitable? The only way they seem to be improving the company's numbers these days is through layoffs and other reductions in costs. What happened to actually finding... — read more
Hi all. Employee who joined last winter. I got access to my PDR review comments in March like I believe all other employees did. My manager how now set up “midyear review” calls with each person on my team. Will this information be written and... — read more
I've been preparing for a long time. I left aside as much savings as I could and have been sending job applications for a long time, renewing some connections, etc... I don't believe that June will pass without layoffs, there has been a lot of talk... — read more
So. Since we got cr---y raises even with really good reviews, and they blamed it on Covid, I assume they see the inflation numbers recently, and will give us a mid year raise?
It's present in every company. However, it's become really rampant here, or so it seems to me? Has the situation always been like this or is nepotism now at its peak? I haven't been here for a long time, and I don't think I'll stay much longer... — read more
When they don’t know how to get the best out of employees, then they try to control them with fear, right? First they convince people that they are not worth much and that they are very easily replaceable. Well, someone needs to explain to them... — read more
How is it that I, who have been loyal to this company for almost 10 years and always give my best, can be brought to the same level as someone who came here only recently? It is humiliating how this company treats people with experience. They don't... — read more
Is there a way to get stress leave approved at PepsiCo? I need to stay away for a few weeks or I will break. I'm so overworked and stressed out that it's having a disastrous effect on my mental health. I'd quit if I could afford it, but I can't. I've... — read more
I feel sorry for all those who have dedicated their years and loyalty to this company and for whom layoff would be the worst thing that could happen at this moment, but I hope that they will soon tell me that they don't need me anymore. Many say... — read more
I know this job means a lot to many people here in spite of everything, but honestly, I can’t wait for the severance pay and to forget about this company. This month I was hoping that they would tell me that they don't need me anymore, but I... — read more
It’s sickening to see how bad the politics and favoritsm is in the place...not to mention the racial inequality around. Very few persons of color get ahead. Lot of talk and no action, especially in the US beverage organization. You need to be part... — read more

Everybody here is replaceable, according to our management.
Maybe it’s a little arrogant to say, but I wouldn’t regret getting laid off because I’m very bored with the job here. Nothing has changed for years, it seems to me that I do one and the same thing all the time and there are no more challenges. I do... — read more
I am 45+ years old and here I can only expect to be laid off. I’m still safe, but I know I’m in the target group if there are cuts. There is no such information, but it would be very interesting for me to know in the overall percentage of the... — read more
Was told by management I lost my position due to restructuring. I was the only one to lose my job in admin. Not sure if this was just a cover up
