I just spoke fearlessly in my Org Health survey. How long till they fire me?
What'd be good for you? 20%?
Is the restructure and layoff happening for pepsi before year end or around review time? This was the 5 year plan. Covid derailed it, but looks like it’s back on track.
Seems to be a lot of this going on in Plano and Chicago
My department was let go this time last year. Now I see a post all over LinkedIn,Glassdoor, indeed of “Fleet Accounts Payable Manager” . This person will hire ten people (the exact amount in the USA that were let go) and manage them and GBS hand in... — read more
Pepsi’s Layoff season has gotten off to a much earlier start this year. It attempts to be fair, offering 1-2 weeks per year of service. However, select lucky few have been afforded a full year. How have those that have gotten a year severance... — read more
So frustrating, I was told that there is a hiring freeze in the South division. Is this true or is the company trying to back peddle and not hire certain people? One minute they say look make connections within the company in hopes to be hired... — read more
Social media is flooded with the PepsiCo CEO and the Executive Team celebrating the success of putting USA workers on the street in favor off cheaper Indian labor. Pepsi tossed hundreds of dedicated employees to the curb without any concern for their... — read more
Does anyone know how much time they will pay for severance? Any buyout packages exist?
At the cost of losing my job, I talked to the manager and tried to explain to him that the amount of work I do is huge, that I am overworked and that the expectations from me are unrealistic. I received an answer that the expectations are not... — read more
I've been here almost 7 years now and have only been promoted twice. Is there a trick to avoiding the 18 month rule?
Don't be one of the people who end up stuck in a years-long wait for things to improve because they're too scared to take their fate into their own hands and leave for greener pastures. I'm still here because I still enjoy my job and I'm paid well... — read more
Is there a reason for doing anything but the minimum at PepsiCo these days? If there is, I can't find it. We are underpaid and we keep losing our benefits, so compensation is certainly not it. Nobody but those who know the right people can get a... — read more
We'll know in a couple of days how bad the layoffs will be. EPS is flat compared to last year ($1.72) which is not a good thing but there seems to be consensus about revenue growth year over year so who knows. In any case, we know they'll find a... — read more
More admin jobs going to GbS. They can’t keep the us admins on payroll. Goal is to eliminate all. Payroll is in the works. 2 roles leaving US in upcoming months. Expect cuts in the group.
Moved on to greener pastures but still connected to a couple Pepsi folks and every time I encounter somethinf on toxicity I flashback to where I used to be. Regardless of political stance, the fact of the matrer is that it's a competitive job market... — read more
why are we not able to access the matching donation website? It is classic of them saving money. Not sponsorsing Super Bowl SAVED millions - which should be shared with employees/charity. I donate as best I can and expect me company to match as they... — read more
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
