    Its not good for a company to have a long occupied CEO. It is not a good corporate governance as it may mean corruption, abuse of power, self vested interest, greediness on the part of the individual occupying the position.

    Terrible interviewer. I wish she had the decency to at least breathe before continuously interrupting Indra Nooyi.

    Love her wisdom and knowledge. She is a path breaker! But, I do feel she succumbs to pressure from her family and the expectations of woman in the house.. If she doesn't stand up for herself in those areas, the trend will continue where a woman is always expected to be 'her best' and a man is allowed to take a pass on his responsibilities because he is 'tired'.. Nevertheless, she is still an amazing role model!

    Calm down, she sold diabetes in a bottle. All the tobacco and sweat drinks are a curse on human civilization, just like opium heroin, hundred years from now we will look at these people as the drug pushers.

    What does Pepsi cola give us ?
    Answer is nothing but it is injurious to health. It is proved by medical science. So it is not to be proud of being CEO of such company which manufactures products that injurious to our health.

      Rekha Ambaramo I agree Pepsi is toilet cleaner. Doesn’t take away the persona that she is!
