What It's Like to Work at PepsiCo

As one of the world's 50 most admired companies, according to Fortune magazine, PepsiCo Inc. inhabits a rarefied place within corporate America. And landing a job there is, for many, the ultimate career achievement.

The iconic brand, which is second only to rival Coca-Cola Co. in soft-drink sales, recently has sought to refashion its image. Under the leadership of Indra Nooyi, its first female CEO, the Purchase, N.Y.-based company has sought to "green up" its business practices and appeal to a more diverse range of consumers and potential employees.
