If a company tried to pay workers such low wages in our country, they would be shut down, boycotted, and sued. How does it become okay to employ people in other countries to do these same jobs for pennies on the dollar? I just don't get how countries... — read more

After long discussion about the lack of work being done this week. I declare 2020 the year where nobody is allowed to take week 52 off and all of you minions must give the man 80 hours during this pivotal year end week. Anyone disagree? 😂
I have been having meetings with multiple functions across the broader organization and overseas over the last few months. As time has passed the recurring question I ask myself is “does anyone have passion left for this company?” All signs... — read more
As is common in many American companies, Freddie Mac is offering employees who meet certain age and tenure requirements a voluntary opportunity to retire early. As we prepare for our next chapter, we anticipate this will help realign our workforce to... — read more

You can add Diabetics to Pepsico'sh– List. Got a letter from Express Scripts stating that effective January 1, 2020, Pepsico is ending the great benefit diabetics have had for years, sending CoPays through the roof. Diabetics will go from zero... — read more

Why would anybody still want to work here unless they really have no other option? Is there anybody who has actually managed to get a promotion in the last several years who is not related or good friends with somebody in the management? It's... — read more
I'd accept it in a heartbeat.
I don't understand why there are no age discrimination suits against Pepsi (at least not enough to make noise). This is a serious, no-sarcasm question. Why not? It's more than apparent that the company is catering millennials while kicking the... — read more
For months all this site has posted was fear mongering about mass cuts. Well here we are at year end and it appears IT is still intact and the business has avoided the knife. So what happened ?????
Why does this site delete posts???? Shady af.
Sector Definition is 1. an area or portion that is distinct from others Only logical next move is eliminate 100% of the sector. Now that the divisions runs themselves and don’t leverage the sector for anything.... Next move is to get rid of the... — read more
Scary to sit in all these meetings to hand hold our replacements offshore on year end once again. It’s like nursery school. I can see why now they don’t have the balls to make more cuts now. Just give me my package and set me free from this... — read more
An earlier post discussed a lay-off occurring the first week of December. Any new info to share? According to our “training” we are suppose to say I am an employee of PepsiCo and these are my opinions and not that of PepsiCo. So, it’s my opinion only... — read more
Quite a number of positive reviews for Frito on GlassDoor these days. Definitely seems like it's lining up well with college recruiting and offers. They're playing the game and they are playing it hard.
I have given the majority of my working career to Pepsi and my family and I have made countless sacrifices for my work. I expect to be cut soon but being close to retirement age I expect to have quite a challenge finding another job. I still have... — read more
PBNA to get hit the hardest. Better faster stronger = remaining redundant roles purged. If you're not a top performer get ready.
UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
I know the cuts were brutal, but I don't think we ever learned how many exactly were left afterwards?
All sorts of panic about cutting costs. The easiest way to cut costs is to cut heads. Get ready for a bloodbath
What the hell happened to IT services over the past year? Its a joke! Is there anybody left that has a clue about our applications?
Make a prediction and tell us what you think about Pepsi Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Beware, just discovered that HR has booked conference rooms on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Recently had a new HR rep assigned to my team in IT. She's much more involved than what I have seen in the last 10 years from other HR reps. She asks many questions such as... How my team is different from IT teams? Why do we still have workers... — read more
Will part of their 2.4 billion restructuring include end of year layoffs, headcuts? Your thoughts?
Anyone hear any additional news about when they're kicking everyone out of White Plains to cram us into "agile seating" in Purchase?
The irony is crippling ! PepsiCo has unleashed a public marketing campaign about Employee Appreciation Week to try and smother a wave of negative feedback from terminated employees. How can a company that is on an unprecedented insensitive employee... — read more

I have 42 years with Pepsi and I am a sales rep. I am also 63 years old. Hoping to go to 65 but I worry every day that I will be part of the 2.3 billion dollar restructuring so that they can bring in some younger campus recruits or military... — read more
It’s been almost a week since many of us could access our network share or gpid drives. Dealing with India is useless! Each day a new contractor tries the same exact method and same results. Nothing! What would take our former IT department 5... — read more

I understand that “ It’s a job, it pays the bills” is basically the only reason that people give for staying at Pepsico. I also understand that It’s a scary world out there and finding a job is not the easiest thing, but when do we say enough is... — read more
