Why I Would Work for PepsiCo

After researching and learning so much about PepsiCo, how could you not want to work for such a good company? Below I will list four reasons why I would gladly take a position with PepsiCo or any of its subsidiaries:

1. They care about their employees. PepsiCo is known for their dedication to providing a diverse and fair working environment. They have been presented many awards that speak for themselves including: DiversityInc’sList of Top 50 Companies for Diversity, Top 10 companies for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) employees by Diversity Inc, Top 10 Companies List for People with Disabilities, and many more. How can you tell if employees enjoy working for a company? They tell you themselves. From the recent graduate profiles section of PepsiCo’s Career Center, Kelly (a recent graduate and Human Resources Rep) said,

“I joined PepsiCo as an intern because of the people I met during my interviews.  I was also interested in working for PepsiCo because it has many recognizable brands, is well known for its diversity and inclusion efforts, and has been recognized as a leader in most of their product categories.”

Hearing good things from an actual employee says a lot about a company and how it treats the people that work there.

2. They care about the environment. Our societies new goal is to help conserve our resources and be courteous to the environment around us. PepsiCo is doing their part. In 2006 they implemented an environmental policy to cut down on resources used and waste produce. But that’s not all they are doing. Frito-Lay’s Sun Chip brand just opened an all solar powered facility and Pepsi-cola uses reverse osmosis in their packing plants to conserve water.

3. The care about the community. Along with taking care of the environment, PepsiCo also takes care of others. They donate thousands of dollars a year to charities, local communities and education. They were also in the top 25 of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens by CRO.

4. Their products are yummy.
