Pros

A great place for learning and growth opportunities, coming in from and acquisition to the Procter and Gamble company is an exciting and scary thing. However once initial fear of what analysis says on behalf of the company being acquired ends, those fears dissipate quickly. It is great to see how well P&G will accept you into the company that has been building for years, with cross functional training and the companies backing to grow as an employee and a person who appreciated values and principles of the company it is a wonderful place to work for overall.

Cons

hard to be completely involved being at an off site location

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More coaching is need to managers who come in from an acquisition

    Pros

    Public company - benefits. Great location. Fair work environment; lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    Industry is dying. What's next after alkaline batteries? Demand is large but not growing for current products. Differentiation very hard to maintain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Broaden the brand. Look for new ways to grow the business. Invest in R&D, new business development etc. Take a few risks.

    Pros

    A great place to get exposed to a wide variety of business models and strategies. Great place for people new to work force and early in careers. Employees get to learn how business is done. Relatively flat org structure provides surprising transparency and visibility. ie, analysts are not relegated to cubicles in the basement.... they're given the opportunity to engage in delivering the business.

    Cons

    P&G's strengths are also its biggest weaknesses. P&G relies so much on standard work processes, systems, vocabulary and management approaches, etc. that everyone assumes these are ubiquitous. When the systems fail or are absent, it presents a disproportionately large and cumbersome challenge. Thus, focus is on doing what we do best vs. driving new, innovative ways of doing business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look for ways to understand what would make the work place and fellow employees more efficient, accommodating, and flexible. Also, the company has changed a lot since the senior leaders were in the lower level management roles in the company. Encourage them to do some "day in the life" experiences to understand the growing demands on employees throughout the company as efficiency and productivity improvement are pushed.
