    Pros

    Great salary, global businesses, broad span of responsibility. Great company to join right out of college and get experience - can open up doors for future jobs

    Cons

    reducing benefits every year - not the same company it was 10 years ago, downsizing without removing work, global teams getting too dispersed

    Advice to Management

    take a hard look at work-life balance, criteria for promotion (focus more on people dev skills) and what has kept highly motivated top talent employees with the company in the past.....choices in recent years may be having an unintended impact on the future

    Pros

    Great brands, potential for global experience, good / competitive pay. Potential to live in different US cities. Potential for for several different experiences ie. Plant, Corporate, Treasury, IT, etc.

    Climbing the ladder is limited to a few and hence kills motivation. Because the company is so big and matrix, decisions are slow to come and can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify...cliche I know.

    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.

    Pros

    P&G constantly spins off the divisions that earn less profit. With this company strategy, the profitable divisions will stay in P&G.

    Cons

    The employees got spin-off/layoff due to the low profit ratio of their division products, they will likely stop buying P&G products,. This will hurt P&G brand image and lost the customer loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers might in the position of spinning off the division and feel their positions will be safe. Nowadays, many reasons could cause the employees got separated such as stock holders' complains on the excessive number of managers comparing with numbers of employees.

    Pros

    Flexibility at times, training when needed, above average pay for category,

    Cons

    Poor culture of politics, too much overhead, few individuals do all the work, manager apathy

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to reduce overhead and non-value added work. Managers need to own the results rather than hope the results happen. Work-life balance is not available for all (manager and technician) due to the few performing the majority of the work, while many have no incentive of doing more than the minimal.
