About Finance at PepsiCo

PepsiCo Finance professionals have a seat at a table, and a voice in the conversation, across the company. Successful employees gain a foundation of the functional and organizational skills needed to contribute to these conversations as they rotate through different teams over the course of their career. PepsiCo’s MBA campus recruiting program is a critical feeder for future Finance leadership. New finance team members must learn to take the risks and ask the questions required of the company’s “rising stars.” There are several strategic groups in finance that professionals have an opportunity to rotate through: A&M, Brand & Innovation, Financial Planning, Mergers & Acquisitions, National Accounts, Revenue Management, Sales, Strategy, Supply Chain and Treasury.

Jacob Nast, Finance Intern career possibilities

Jacob Nast

Finance Intern

When I was an intern...
I had the opportunity to work with Quaker's supply chain finance team over a 10-week span during Summer 2013. My goal was to investigate the sales lift generated from Quaker's use of in-store product displays. Starting with an analysis of the company's display inventory, I was able to quantify incremental sales data for specific displays and recommend actions for optimizing their usage. I received constructive feedback on my work throughout the summer, and presented my findings at the end of the internship to senior finance leaders.

Why I chose PepsiCo...
Not only did my internship project provide me with challenging and meaningful work, it exposed me to a host of opportunities to get to know so much about the company's operations and talented employees. Although PepsiCo is a large company, I felt like a valued member of a team and wanted to continue the experience full-time! I believe that there is ample opportunity and encouragement to learn and grow with this company going forward.

Supply Chain Finance Associate Analyst

PepsiCo Americas Beverages

Taking on an adventure isn't just something you do in college -- at least not when you're someone like Nikki Abba, supply chain finance associate analyst at PepsiCo.  Nikki's willingness to leave a small town to join a global company in one of the largest cities in the United States wasn't made without her experiencing just a little fear of the unknown.

Her nerves were quickly put at ease during the transition from intern to full time employee when she was introduced to the members of Conn3ct, a PepsiCo employee resource group.  Through Conn3ct, Nikki learned to become a true networking professional through the sharing of her experiences and insights while encouraging others to do the same while exploring career possibilities within the organization.

“I love working for PepsiCo because I love being a part of a company that is so much larger than myself and where the work I do as an individual touches so many lives worldwide."

Nikki can now often be found speaking to potential interns on behalf of PepsiCo.  She's discovered that she enjoys sharing what it's like to be part of a company that not only embraces the diverse backgrounds of team members but also uses those differences to make stronger teams and fun working environments.

Finance Intern

When I was an intern...
I really enjoyed working in Innovation Finance for Frito Lay, which allowed me to work cross functionally to build financials for new product launches. It is very rewarding to work on a project from product ideation to being able to see it on the shelf.

Why I chose PepsiCo...
I chose PepsiCo for the endless opportunities, both geographically and within the Finance organization. During my four years with PepsiCo, I have had three different Finance roles and recently transferred to the Quaker team in Chicago from Frito Lay in Plano. All of these roles have been very rewarding & great learning experiences that will benefit me in the future.
