    Great Salary, Approachable people, Challenging projects, and Relaxed Atmosphere

    Product Supply Intern (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsThe intern projects are truly your own and very challenging, but there are so many resources and support to help you along the way. The first few week are called 'ramp up' where you are expected to soak as much knowledge as possibly. Interns are treated like a full time employ but with all the benefits of being an intern. Your needs take precedent over full time employers because you need to complete your projects in a shorter time span. Also all of the other interns are really friendly and social.

    ConsCincinnati is okay, but I rather not live here.

    P&G CBD Culture

    CBD Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsThe workers at P&G are very sociable and easy to get along with. The work is challenging and allows for a lot of autonomy. There are great advancement opportunities within CBD. A change in position typically requires a move; however, they are flexible to personal life circumstances.

    ConsVery competitive environment. There is a lot of variation in aspects of the culture depending on the office location. Training process was weak. Managers were not always present. You are basically thrown into the job. Relocation is basically required for advancement within the sales department.

    Great company

    Intern (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsOne of my favorite consumer brands. Not only does P&G makes really good products, but the people who are behind the scenes doing it make work fun and are pro's at what they do. Wonderful work/life balance.

    ConsAlthough P&G has plants around the world, their corporate headquarters and many of their home locations for engineering & research are in the Cincinnati area. As a younger engineer, I wasn't quite ready to commit to Cincinnati as a home location.

    Good, but going through tough times.

    R&D Intern (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsP&G has a long history of innovation and also has an amazing work culture where everyone is very helpful.

    ConsWith P&G going through restructuring a lot of interns aren't getting offers and people over 50 are being "persuaded" to retire. P&G normally doesn't do layoffs which is an extreme plus but some people have been let go recently because of the restructuring. R&D doesn't feel productive; most technologists just are paid more or less to answer the phone, with the real technology being developed by universities or suppliers. Analytical resources in R&D (who actually do all the heavy lifting experimentation) are overworked and under appreciated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeef up analytical resources because they're the ones who are going to produce the research needed for innovation. Encourage technologists to actually do the experiments themselves and be invested in them instead of just answering phone calls from suppliers so that they care more, develop skills, and may come up with something new.
