I’m interested in how selective the company has been lately when it comes to getting a job here. I came here almost 10 years ago and I think the company at the time took a lot of care with accuracy and detail when it comes to recruiting. However... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at PepsiCo Inc. (Pepsi)
I love how someone mentioned PepsiCo is trying to convince the public but also the employees that this company is great. I understand how they could try to convince someone who doesn’t work here that this is the best company, but it’s very funny when... — read more
What is this new department? Is it part of GBS?
I hear from some people that they train their replacements after they are notified of the cancellations. Is that mandatory? What if someone refuses to do so? I'm trying to imagine how those who want to forget this company feel while they must train... — read more
All I see on social media is what a great company Pepsi is and how they are committed to upholding values to the extreme. All I see here are employees testifying to one of the worst toxic environments I have heard of. Which is it?
Of course everyone thinks they should be paid more, but I'm interested, when you objectively think about the amount and difficulty of work you do and at the same time you hear from others how much they are paid for almost the same job in another... — read more
In Plano, they have started using a company called PREMIERE RESPONSE to answer some consumer calls. They have not hired a single person since covid started and claim they are doing this temporarily to help with the influx of calls and no staff. I... — read more
This is certainly the case in Pepsico, but also in other companies in general, that employees with a lot of experience are laid off or in many ways forced to leave on their own because at some point they become too expensive for the company. I wonder... — read more
15 job openings for PLCI. Will I regret it if I apply and get it?
I recently left this company in a very ugly way (I didn’t sue Pepsico, but I wanted to do it) and now I’m afraid it will affect my employment in the new company. Someone tells me that it has nothing to do with it and that the way I left here cannot... — read more
It doesn’t matter how hard you work or the extra work you do even at the sacrifice of your personal life you are just a number and when you get to expensive or they have used you up you will be replaced or your job will go to GBS. Thankfully the... — read more
Everybody still waiting for the BIG ONE to get a severance? Ha ha ha ha. What a strange company. Hope it come soon. I will retire in only 20 years.
Immediately after I came here it became clear to me that HR does everything to remind you that you are very interchangeable and that many other people are interested in your place. Then I started working beyond my limits in order to secure my job... — read more
Do you think our raises were in lieu of layoffs? Possibly earnings came off our backs to pay Wall Street? Business results are looking really good this year and I’ve been pumped. Right up until I saw what my raise is. It’s been so demotivating. ... — read more
What's the general feelings about the new work that works policy?
Who is the next contestant on The Price Is Right? C’mon down !
I read in one of the earlier threads that there were layoffs at some departments. Is that true? If so, what departments are affected and how many people are involved? I hope that no one is so malicious to further raise the level of stress and... — read more
Someone mentioned favoritism in one of the posts so it reminded me of experience when credit for my work was attributed to a person who was favored by the manager. Since then I have completely lost motivation and since then I only work for... — read more
They still have jobs until August but only to train the GPS team in India. Some will get a severance and retention bonuses but other than that, it really s—s
I haven’t been here long but I've already noticed I’ve come to another company with a cliques culture. I thought it was only present in much smaller companies, such as the one I left. Honestly, I was very surprised by that in Pepsico. I thought the... — read more
And again, those with an unwavering commitment to the boys and girls clubs miraculously transfer out of harms way in just the nick of time. Once those graced with job protection in reward for the blind support of the corrupt management layers are... — read more
Layoffs are happening now as we speak. Folks are being notified. If you don’t already have a resume ready and an online linked in presence you are behind. You need to constantly be getting face time in front of other companies and in the process of... — read more
My manager doesn't explain anything to us. What is the PDR number rating out of?
I wouldn’t be surprised if the layoffs happen in April. The most important thing for me is that until then I have time to consider alternatives, just in case. Pepsico would not be the only company that, despite the profit, decided to make big cuts... — read more
Hearing bonuses are same as last year and raises are terrible. We go through Covid Hell and Pepsi pockets all the profits. Gross.
What happened to all those IT people that were rebadged to the outsourcing vendor in 2015? Are they still employed or did the vendor drop them after Pepsi decided to change outsourcing vendors in 2017? Were they hired back by Pepsi.
Everybody still warm and snuggled ??? Another doomsday prediction avoided.
And yeah I knew many from beverage who were jumping over to Snacks because snacks is the division that has carried this company given the margins and endless innovation. There is far less room on the beverage side for innovation so beverage... — read more
IF YOURE LOOKING FOR A COMPANY WHERE YOU WON'T GET PROMOTED OR HAVE A CAREER THEN PEPSI IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. DOESNT MATTER HOW HARD YOU WORK, OR HOW QUALIFIED YOU ARE, THEY WILL ALWAYS HAVE SOME BOGUS EXCUSE NOT TO PROMOTE YOU.
After 30 years I was given zero notice. I was invited to a staged meeting and let go by people who had no idea what my job was or what my team even did. I was stripped of all my Pepsi property and escorted to my car by a complete stranger. Not even... — read more
The new chopping block catch phrase. Now that all the rule 70 people have been sent to pasture, the directive for the next wave of cleansing is to balance diversity. SLT have set very aggressive and very public expectations for a diverse employee... — read more
Wow, so hopefully during the upcoming Valentines M—acre ALL of PepsiCo's marketing and branding teams are fired. 1) You are blowing money on sh–ty Superbowl half time shows. 2) You are over paying for having Ashton Kutcher and Mila In your... — read more
That severances everyone of IT, R&D & HR. Wasn’t me
The Super Bowl show sponsored by PEP is a waste of shareholders money and an insult to those about to be terminated or layed off. Who is this guy on the show some second rate fool that fortunately nobody can g by ear much less understand.
I worked in Frito R&D for several years before being laid off, despite being a top performer on annual reviews, along with 15% of the department; many of whom were older PepsiCo veterans who knew what they were doing. It has been several years... — read more
If the past is indicative of the future and we continue to follow KO's lead.... then buckle up for the next 10 days.
Hear they are cutting costs at every corner..... anyone else seeing this?
With all the talk about massive cuts I am getting worried. If you get terminated, do you leave right away? Do you still work for a few weeks?
