Terrible working environment
Overworked with no rewards, praise or recognition.
Would not recommend hard working individuals to join this company.

You only get used!

Management only know to use the blame game,, you do the hard work and they take the praise!
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
No work life balance

Sales Assistant at Simba
Good environment with supportive coworkers (especially the older ones). Management is also very supportive but labour is hard. Especially for women. Over time pay is great.

Poor management but great benefits
Managers are unskilled and hate constructive criticism as per an external survey done on the company. skill sharing is scares as senior managers have similar qualifications to entry level operators.

The culture is no longer enabling for employees to thrive and excel at what they do.
The company has good values and CoC but the management processes makes it unpleasant to work for the company. The culture has recently developed to a hostile one, there is no consistency interms of empathy and support to coach and enable staff to reach good performance levels.
Unless you are a favorite or what we called "directors pat" career growth and professional suppory will never bethere for, you woll just remain frustrated on your and blamed for everything not go right.grogrowthaprofe

Great and not great
It was fun and exciting to work in such big company, the only disappointing thing was the salary, according to the work that we were doing wasn't market related, overall I had a great time lots of experience i got from my manager and colleagues.

Exciting company to work for with great career growth potential.
A typical day doesn't exist in PepsiCo, it's such a dynamic and exciting place to work. I have grown as a person and in my career in the time I have work with the company.
My role is challenging and rewarding. Management is supportive to career aspirations and keen to help development.

Workplace culture is built on mutual respect and understanding. It is a results driven business and KPI's are expected to be met and exceeded.

In my position, I receive continuous calls and Whatsapps out of hours which can impact work/life balance but the trade-off is a growing career, competitive salary and great work environment. My greatest satisfaction is seeing people grow in their roles.
Pros
Great team, exciting challenges.
Cons
None

I enjoyed it
Working with PEPSISCO was one the best thing that happened in my career.

I loved it because I had a chance of meeting with different people everyday. I loved working with trucks and supplies. The challenging part was having to go to dangerous places to make the deliveries. The culture was good because old staff members helped the new staff which made the work easier.

Forward thinking company
PepsiCo management have realised the need to adopt a world class manufacturing approach. To this end they have developed a 3 year transformation plan aimed at changing the business to one that is focused on performance.

Typical day at work are based on Agile project management methods. Issues are identified and removed to ensure flow within the project.


Being part of the SAP implementation team exposed me to software development processes and methods.


External resources are valued for their contributions, however they are not provided any reward and recognition for their efforts.


The hardest part of the the job was having to apply indirect influence to ensure results.


The most enjoyable part of the job was becoming part of a successful team that delivered an exceptional project.
Pros
Valued for contribution
Cons
Not reward and recognition
