    Former Employee - Senior R&D Researcher in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A big company with top class processes. There's a process for everything. People are great to work with.

    Cons

    Too much red tape to get things done. They don't always listen to the expert in the room. Career progression has a lot to be desired within R&D.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clear progression path for people. Promote people when they exceed expectations.

    Current Employee - Assistant Brand Manager in Cincinnati, OH

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    P&G recently led the charts for the best companies to work for to become a leader, and it's clear why. The training opportunities are incredible and frequent. Even though you may be an ABM or "band 2," bottom of the totem pole, you get visibility to the Presidents, VPs, etc.

    Cons

    The worst part about P&G is that they take "extraordinary people and make them feel ordinary." Despite having an MBA and many years of experience before coming to P&G, I could be doing the same work as an undergrad hire. You have to stay at level for 4-5 years before promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to get real. You are just an exporter of talent. Need to really become more of a meritocracy and promote people faster.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    Great place for learning and skill development

    Cons

    A lot of bad, poorly trained managers. Highly political - managers definitely play favorites in terms of promotion and hiring for roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on RESULTS, not who networks the best

    Former Employee - Brand Operations
    Former Employee - Brand Operations

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A chance to work with billion dollar brands and be a part of a company that affects people shopping choices every day. It is like a marketing school, you get to learn a lot. The office is nice and you feel comfortable there.

    Cons

    Competitive environment where people smile to each other but most often are after their own agenda. The department director wasn't a leader that people should follow. It is not easy to get a promotion; sometimes you wonder why certain people get promoted and the rest spend years in the same level. So many of my colleagues and even a manager remained a certain same level for 5 years. I got lucky to have a great manager who trusted me and I really enjoyed my work. However, that's not the case with so many other people, who can't wait to be reassigned to another manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should stop hiring contractors! Make everyone equal in their rights in the company. By differentiating contractors and P&Gers you violate human rights. Contractors should be given a P&G status or not hired at all.
