Marketing Senior Analyst
There was a point where my peers and I weren’t getting promoted after 2 years. There’s not a lot of turnover in my group, so it’s hard to get promoted. I ended up speaking up about it, and my manager took it to HR, and we ultimately got a double promotion to make up for it.
I love the company culture. It’s really collaborative. I learn a ton. It’s challenging, but it’s not cutthroat and you're not pinned against your peers.
We really prioritize diversity as we recruit. The analyst to manager level is pretty diverse.
We need to do more work on retention. We need to focus on how much we’re mentoring people to feel supported to get to senior leadership levels. There’s no Hispanic person in leadership, but this differs across brands and locations.
We have a lot of ERGs. Mosaic is for the Black community, Adelante is for the Hispanic community, and there’s one for women and for veterans as well. The ERGs could be more effective. We have a lot of good touchpoints and events to celebrate culture, but there’s always room for improvement.

Meeting employees halfway as it pertains to scheduling flexibility is a huge strength for PepsiCo. Also, within Marketing, Finance and Sales, there are a considerable amount of poc, even as you work up the ladder. I wasn't expecting to see as many black women dominating the Marketing floor as I did.
More intentionality in bringing together the black employees could be helpful. They have employee resource groups but, to my knowledge, there's work to be done a it pertains to mobilization.
Relationships with manager(s)
Great. My managers were very flexible and genuinely wanted to see me excel.
