Smart, dedicated and creative workforceCompetitive payTerrific stretch assignmentsCollegial environment
Coke continues to be rated ahead of PepsiCo despite PepsiCo being a larger and better managed company that extends across both beverages and food.
One of the best CPG internship and full-time opportunities for MBA students. Program is very selective so know Pepsi's financials, strategy, product lines, and culture. Strong general managers who can roll up their sleeves, challenge the status quo politely, and demonstrate creativity tend to succeed in the interview process.

Great flexibility, large company with large impact, fun and enthusiastic atmosphere.
Transparency of career path, large separation between field and corporate
Must be flexible with location preferences and willing to relocate.
Lots of autonomy. Friendly atmosphere. Informal culture. Good prestige. Great products. Good holidays and flexible hours.
Poor organisation. Poor leadership. Bad office loaction. Average pay. Very political. Poor IT.
No your brands. Have passions for the industry. Show autonomy. Show detail. Have a sales, customer and product focus. Know your customers.
Worldwide exposure; great brands; unbelievable opportunity to try new marketing ideas, develop brands, flavours, techniques. Great deal of respect regardless of level in the organisation.
Long hours, typical bureaucratic problems of an organization this large. Sometimes hard to figure out who's in charge of what.
This is, in all respects, a great place to work and to thrive, if you're willing to put in the hours and take personal responsibility for your work. Have had opportunities to work at other Fortune 50 corporations; there's no comparison. PepsiCo generates excitement with its products, offers boundless opportunities and makes coming to work fun.
Culture was very much based on diversity. It wasn't about "let's not talk about diversity to not offend anyone" but more about "let's talk about it because that's what makes us unique and gives us a competitive advantage"
It's big company - there are always downers when it comes to that. Change can be slow and sometimes you have to navigate not just solving a business problem but solving it through the constraints of bureaucracy.
I worked at a bottling plant for Pepsi right out of college and you could tell that they put a lot of emphasis in keeping college grads in the company and helping them grow into leaders. A few years in, I chased a good salary and left the company and wished I had stayed in Pepsi instead. Culture matters and I didn't realize that until I got out.
