I have been working at Procter & Gamble as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

- Incredibly smart and helpful co-workers.
- Great compensation/benefits.
- Amazing career opportunities.
- Real and meaningful projects as an intern.

Cons

- Work/Life balance is dependent on assignment/manager. I've interned here two summers, one summer I worked 35-40 hour weeks and another summer I worked 50-55 hour weeks.
- Due to current economic climate and the company not growing as fast as it used to, a lot of cutbacks and budget reductions are happening (less training events, less social events, less travel, etc)
- You don't know your work location until two months before work starts. Meaning that you have to accept a job offer WITHOUT knowing where you will be placed.

    A great company to work for, smart people to work with, and major responsibilities from day ONE.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very early opportunities with huge responsibilities are the norm. Self-development is on the fast track, especially with the business demands pushing you beyond the edge.
    Manufacturing is state-of-the-art. IWS (quite similar to Toyota's TPS) proves a very sustainable way to drive an enormous operation through a journey of continuous improvement.
    Job rotation is quite frequent, which broadens your capabilities front and develops your personality significantly.
    Leadership is the value, everyone at every level leads...

    Cons

    Work to life balance is always an issue, especially with the demanding business and competitive environment.
    Principles and values are very well set, but a young organization might falsely interpret and a confusing culture may arise.
    P&G people are very judegmental, owing to the very fast pace at the workplace. Sometimes decisions are not principle based as we want them to be.
    Decision making is extremely slow, business opportunities get lost and frustration builds all around.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    P&G had a terrific work/life balance which included working from home. They supported a culture where you were encouraged to come up with new and innovative ideas and were rewarded for it.

    Cons

    Working for a publicly traded company has its downfalls, one of which is keeping the shares up. This can result in a loss of budget and lay offs. Home office does not have a social life!
