I worked at Procter & Gamble as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

It's impossible describe how fun and engaging it is to work at P&G. Right off the bat, you are given immense responsibilities over large-scale projects without ever feeling overwhelmed. Management in this company is highly structured in a positive way and is very supportive of the technical and intangible needs of company employees. Innovation is the driving force and lifeblood of this company, so definitely expect to be open-minded and be open to change and new ideas when you step in. Those who come up with innovative solutions or solutions to company problems that work are fairly promoted/compensated and recognized. Pay is competitive as well, with great benefits that many other companies do not offer, such as profit sharing. My favorite part of the company is the people however. P&G invests a lot of time, effort, and money into the recruitment of its employees and it definitely shows. I have never had a bad day at work or with anybody in the company. Those both above you and below you by pay-grade or level all have a way of enabling others' capabilities. Employees at this company are generally smart, friendly, and above all, leaders. That is what P&G is all about and it is a great company to not only meet other leaders and managers, but learn to be one yourself.

Cons

It is very difficult to come up with cons for this company due to my great experience with them. The only one I can think of, and this is not a con for me personally, is the fact that its a very large company. The way some people may see this to be a con is that employees become closer to just a number in the company rather than an individual known by everybody. However, it is very easy to get to know others in the company and network.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    P&G is one of the benchmarks in the consumer product industry. In the manufacturing arena, they are considered one of the best producers in the world. Their IWS (Integrated Work Systems) principles (similar to Six Sigma, Lean) help set the foundation for a world class organization. Early on in a career in manufacturing, one is quickly given a lot of responsibility. The first few assignments develop your technical skills and understanding of IWS principles and from there you progress to higher levels, managing other technicians and managers. P&G's size opens a wealth of opportunities in different fields and locations.

    Cons

    P&G is a big company. As a result, one of the bigger benefits of the company (yearly profit sharing contribution) can be both good and bad. The good is that you don't have to do anything extra to get it but when P&G is unable to move the pendulum much in either direction in terms of results, the stock price stays relatively flat. Unfortunately, P&G locations are not usually near big cities, especially manufacturing plants. This is a downside to me and probably many Gen X/Y people as we seem to want to be in more of a city environment. At the manufacturing plants, the pace is also increased with demands for production influencing work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make a step change in results to drive stock price up while also leading the way in work/life balance and diversity.
