    Great training and experience

    Marketing (Former Employee)

    ProsI would recommend this company to everyone. It is a great place to work with the opportunity to step change your training and experience. If you are motivated and flexible you can navigate to keep stretching your skills. It is especially a great company to learn marketing but from a well rounded general management position ensuring your business management skills are developed.
    * Great training programs
    * Strong on the job training
    * Ability to move and gain new experiences

    ConsAs with most big companies the complexity of decision making elongates the process and at times it is not clear who is the decision maker.
    * Very set and established processes
    * Large company thus long time to make decisions

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn that different business units may need different processes to offer agility to stay competitive in market.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fantastic Training and Culture

    Process Engineer (Current Employee)
    Greensboro, NC

    ProsProcter and Gamble gives fantastic training and truly wants you to succeed as an individual. The culture in the plant is very positive and I feel like everyone wants to help one another.

    ConsThe work is tough, but that's what you signed up for! If you are looking for a 40 hour workweek, you won't find it here, but you will find the work rewarding and the atmosphere friendly.

    Great place for leadership training

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLots of leadership and autonomy upfront. Lots of team work and collaboration. Great office culture where your colleagues are your friends. Lots and lots of training. P&G is known as the company with the best marketing and brand management training.

    ConsVery bureaucratic. Very slow to market. Every initiative takes months and months to launch and you have to align everything with too many stakeholders.

    Best internship program

    Project Engineer (Current Employee)
    Henderson, NC

    ProsI love the work. There aren’t that many companies that give interns 5-10 projects to work on. And it’s not tedious work where I sit in front of a computer all day. From meetings with contractors to creating funding packages, they teach you the whole spectrum on how to be a successful project manager/engineer by following P&G process.

    ConsThe only con I have is that it can be difficult to schedule meetings when your sources are out on vacation or traveling for other work related activities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice. You guys are doing a great job. Keep up all the hard good and I do appreciate all the knowledge you bring to the table that helps me grow professionally.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Outstanding people and principle-based company

    Department Manager (Former Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsGlobal roles available. Great benefits including retirement plan that you don't have to match. Frequent change means that roles open up almost daily.

    ConsFrequent layoffs in certain parts of the company. Low morale because too much work for too few people. Be prepared to work often on nights and weekends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the long term and not just who to cut on this 12-month cycle. Get back to making products that are truly quality and stop figuring out ways to cheapen the product.
