    I guess, the work culture in PepsiCo India is not so healthy to retain strong leaderships. Work culture is a very important aspect which can help retain talents and leaderships. I happened to do a business with PepsiCo India few years back and I was shocked to see that General Manager like officer asking for a percentage for the contract which is certainly not a good indicator of their work culture. If work ethics and culture is missing in any organization, it would only attract wrong type of talents and will not be able to retain strong leaderships. And I hope PepsiCo does not fall in this category.
