Good Company but has it's own challenges

I have been working at Procter & Gamble for more than 5 years

ProsPromote from within (long tenures)
Good benefits, pay and flexible work hours
Great stablebrands that have been around a long time

ConsToo many people not contributing to business (laziness) because low risk of getting fired
Moving roles after 2-3 years (less time in business unit, creates a long curve for driving impact)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to work, with strong leadership, smart people, and a great culture.

Category Development Account Executive (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 10 years

ProsProcter & Gamble employees are hard working and smart people. Employees have opportunities to work with iconic brands, and are generally given a large amount of responsibility. People are well trained, and leadership has the confidence that everyone will deliver, which is empowering. P&G employees strive to live by the company's Purpose, Values and Principles, and are mutually respectful to others.

ConsIt is a large company, and there are a lot of structured systems and processes that can slow down the agility of the company. Schedules must be managed carefully, or work-life balance can be difficult.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to invest in your people. Think about putting fast paced, forward thinkers into key positions to loosen processes and speed agility.

Great place to work, competitive and flexible

R&D Engineer (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time

ProsFlexible schedules, focused on career planning, and are a top competitor in the consumer products industry. Company is growing as well.

ConsBenefits have been decreasing to benchmark with other companies in the similar size profile. Obama care May in fact change this more in future years. Competitive work environment, but not too serious, very friendly

Advice to Senior ManagementThe largest work life balance issue is often wasted department or sector meetings that often to not add much value to the organization and typically waste people's time. R&D must be more focused on QA and compliance as we are lacking behind.

Amazing company that cares about the growth of their employers.

Research and Development Engineer (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I worked at Procter & Gamble as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe pay compared to other Fortune 50 companies is very competitive. There is also opportunity to change careers inside the company which is definitely a plus.

ConsI do not necessarily have any cons of working with P&G. One tiny con depending on the person would be locations since there are very limited sites in the South.
