Great global company with access to great resources...but is subject to the inherent challenges of hierarchy.

Pros

-Flexible working arrangements.
-Global company.
-Large variety of businesses, enabling one to change roles many times without leaving the company.

Cons

-Hard to get things done (challenges of hierarchy inherent in a big company).
-Lack of empowerment at lower levels.
-Can't leave P&G for another company and come back (P&G is a promote-from-within company).

Advice to Management

Stop thinking that creating more systems is simplifying.

    Pros

    work with some of the most academically talented people in business everyday. Chance to learn from the best and train with the best. Access to the best systems and insights in the industry with a portfolio that speaks for its self. the best brands around the world

    Cons

    great time to know that you are one of over one hundred thousand employees in the world. sometimes you could feel lost in such a gigantic organization in the world. you can go weeks without seeing or hearing from a co worker. Too many calls and meetings and people feel compelled to schedule more and more meetings

    Pros

    P&G is very ethical and generally always does the right thing for people (although it may take a while and some dedicated people to cause that to happen). You have to learn the culture and fit into the culture or it's not the place for you, but overall an excellent company that cares about its shareholders and the people working for the company.

    Cons

    There is a meeting to talk about what to meet about - and they are all scheduled during prime working or lunch hours. Some of the leaders don't understand continuous improvement and just carry the whole thing to a nutcase level. But the depth of knowledge is so great that things usually work out - they just take a LOT longer than necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what your leaders really know how to do. The level of technical depth and knowledge continues to fall at all levels. The current methods of rating leadership are not working. You are getting too little information from the lower levels about performance of your managers. Continue to use location free roles - it allows increased skills to be available for roles.
