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

    Excellent, very ethical company with a strong marketing and technical base

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Love the work. Its a great resume builder and career starting point.

    Cons

    Way too political. The supposed value system is BS. Nobody there follows the guiding principles that this company was founded on. Decisions made on emotion and not fact. Too many meetings. No career advancement opportunities. Workload is way too much to handle. Compensation is 20-30k under what the market is. Was told in interview that flexible work hours and work from home were the norm and found out thats not true. Benefits are increasing in cost at a rapid rate. Generally speaking, this is not the company I thought it was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that the good talent of the younger generations is leaving your company at an alarming rate due to pay, benefits, and career structure. Get in touch with your people and understand their concerns, if you continue to operate under the... We are P&G, thats why people will stay mentality you will continue to lose market share to your competitiors and will soon become just an average company. Also go back to thinking more about the big picture versus the devil in the details mentality. And please, go back to running a business that people were proud of. You didnt oppease investors, you ran the company the way you saw fit instead of fitting your strategy to invenstors. Understand how your decisions are impacting the entire supply chain, not just what you desire the outcome to be. At an execution level the work that you have designed for us is nearly impossible to execute based on you not being informed of what it takes to execute the plan you set in motion.
