I have been working at Procter & Gamble as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

I was able to make my own schedule that agreed with the needs of the scientist that I worked with.
The pay was reasonable. I was able to take off as needed for other interviews--it is a temporary job with no chance of permanency.

Cons

The P& employees did not truly value the temps. Temps are treated as second class citizens, not included in any of the events that P&G employees are included in. There were many meetings/events that promote acceptance and diversity, yet they treated the temps like they were not even there. Not so much as a temp appreciation day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Temps are valuable to the company, treat them tat way.

    Pros

    Paycheck. If you play the game right you can get paid much more than you should for being pretty incompetent. There is no accountability for screwing things up. Actually you may even get a promotion out of it. So if you are good at passing the buck you will fit right in.

    Cons

    Politics of a large company. If you can shut your brain off and keep showing up it is a great place. If you care about doing something meaningful with your life and making a positive impact in other employees' lives it is not the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really great co-workers. Smart, caring, and are trying to do the right thing.
    Decent mobility within the company with the ability to influence next assignments to get well rounded experiences.

    Cons

    Leadership cannot look at something without making a new suggestion even if the work is good. Decisions are not delegated down.
    Agility is talked but not actually embraced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate decisions. Cast a vision and trust your employees to deliver against it versus over-thinking everything that comes across your desk.
