Great marketing training ground, but naturally with red tape and bureaucracy

Pros

I had the privilege of working with good bosses - five and all female, throughout my three years there. Also loved the diversity of cultures/nationalities, good benefits including work from home policy one day a week. Fantastic training ground in marketing and brand management and working with agency partners.

Cons

As with any huge multi-national, lots of processes, red tape and bureaucracy. Many hoops to jump through just to get a simple business plan and budget approved, by which time smaller, more agile competitors are probably two steps ahead of you. HR doesn't add much value to the business other than trainings and exit interviews. Even for the exit interview, the HR manager didn't seem committed to setting it up and I should not even have bothered pushing for it if the company wasn't interested in taking feedback and acting on it.

Advice to Management

There's a reason why P&G is good at developing people who end up as CMOs in other MNCs, but not CEOs. Find out why and work on it.

    Pros

    * Great people, promotion "from within" let's you grow with a generation of talented personnel * More than 150 years of experience passing on to each generation * Overall good product pipeline * Company committed to Social Responsibility

    Cons

    * Too much bureaucracy * No freedom to talk issues with upper management...they just want to hear "their story" * People get promoted by time, rather than by showing great performance

    Advice to Management

    You should review your promotion process to General Manager, you are not placing the best talent there,


  2. Delivering core work isn't as important as getting involved in site activities

    Pros

    Great benefits package overall Reasonable work/life balance Variety of assignments Lots of great people

    Cons

    Lack of clear focus/key targets under new CEO (improving in last year but still not great) Way too little focus on what you deliver & way too much on image & exposure Lack of transparency on pay & well below inflation payrises for most people over the last 5 years (unless they were promoted in that time)

    Advice to Management

    Give some clear advice to individuals on what to expect on salary increases,
