    Pros

    Competitive pay, better than average benefits and ownership culture empowers people at all levels. Very good by comparison for those from diverse backgrounds and for women.

    Cons

    Company has cut back on health and retirement benefits. New and recently hired employees will get less in retirement than more senior employees. Company has a goal of paying a lower percentage of total health spending than in the past making current benefits no longer as good when comparing to other companies but are still better than average.

    For product supply technicians promotion and transfer opportunities are severely limited. If you want to work a dead-end job that pays higher than other dead-end jobs in your town, working at a P&G manufacturing facility isn't a bad choice. If you think working for a global company will come with great opportunities you're right if you are an engineer or manager but absolutely wrong if you're a technician.

    Like many manufacturing firms, there is a heavy bias toward those with engineering degrees. If you want to be a technician, be prepared to have a 24 year old with a bachelor's degree and 2 years of experience be your boss even if you've been there for 15 years and know far more. Also be prepared for that 24 year old's superior, who you will almost never interact with, take credit for your hard work and receive a bonus for the business results that you and your peers ultimately deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Strengthen the promote to management program. Many talented non-management personnel leave the company or mentally check out but stay because the company won't promote them, despite their knowledge and skills. It's a huge waste of human capital.
