Procter develops leadership but be wary of long hours and a lack of Gen Y culture.

I have been working at Procter & Gamble

Pros

When i was initially looking for jobs I had many many opportunities presented to me. The reason i choose Procter is because i can learn all the technical skills in the world, but leadership skills are something very hard to come by and Procter only focuses on hiring and developing world class leadership talent.

Cons

Cincinnati, OH although a medium sized city can be a bit of a downer. The public transportation sucks. In the company itself you have to hit the ground running and you often work many more then 40 hours a week. I suggest that you take a hard look at your life and decide if your ready to start running with some of the most competitive and inteligent people in the world because your life is going to be put on the back burner for the first couple of years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to focus on your culture. With all the outsourcing you've done over the last few years you need to really put an eye to creating a better environment. New Young people at the company are unhappy because you don't give them enough flexibility and there is almost no social scene for them to take part in. Create a culture for young people. This country is going to be running low on talent supply in the next couple of years especially in technical skill sets and its going to take more then money to attract someone to a job here.

    Hours do add up. Pressure to perform. Gotta deliver your numbers. Huge company with lots of processes that take time. Learning curve is steep at first but it get better. A lot of political stuff to deal with on a day to day basis - requires some getting used to.

    Making products overseas and selling them in the U.S makes no sense if nobody has the money to purchase the products.

    Pros

    Proctor and Gamble is a very smart company. They didn't become the largest consumer products company by accident.

    Cons

    Alot of the human company relationships are gone. Its all about the numbers. With more concern with shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use each plants potential to improve each product line's bottom line.
