    I have been working at Procter & Gamble Technical Centers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most people you work with are decent, trustworthy. Good compensation, the company takes good care of you. Fairly flat organization. You can do whatever you choose to as long you connect it to the business and deliver. Amazing foundational value system called PVP. Very high ethics...

    Cons

    Too soft on low performers. Too many "leaders" and very few "followers". Everyone wants to lead and few wants to really work and deliver something. Some have rigged the system, so by simply playing enough politics they grow until they hit the wall...too much rope...they do finally hang but only after too much damage...even if you are a top performer, promotions are very slow...middle management is essentially powerless...Technically shallow...too much internal competition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a truly performance based system. Don't run the company just on relationships...make Zero tolerance for internal competition and politics. Allow young people to grow fast, create official fast path for the really capable...bring back entrepreneurial spirit...

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Procter & Gamble Technical Centers in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter had seen my previous internships paperwork; saw some interest. The panel interview was the hardest; ended up I met one of the guys before. They split hairs when they couldn't get the answer out of me they wanted. It was difficult to read what they're looking for. P&G has a very odd work culture; if they think you're not cut out for it at the onset you may as well say whatever you want during the interview.
