Pros

-The culture is very collaborative; common notion that it is cutthroat is untrue. -Culture is flat; organizational hierarchy does not get in the way of building relationships. -The internship program is well-developed. Objectives and milestones are well-set. -Managers are very good mentors, providing specific feedback for improvement. -Work-life balance is given premium.

Cons

-Relatively heavy workload, as compared to other internship programs in other companies. -Post-internship feedback takes rather long. -Job openings within the Company after the internship are limited, given low attrition rates.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work! The internship program is very well-structured as it is.

    Pros

    1) Prominent brands 2) Large scale 3) Bright people - but far from maximized productivity 4) Reduced but still strong investor confidence / capital (bluechip) 5) Good to have it on your CV if you stays in the industry

    Cons

    It has gone down-hill last 2-3 years. Not because of down-turn (you can't blame everything on it) - lots of bureaucracy and office politics. What makes you shine/promoted is not 'hitting you target' but 'build your profile'. No meaningful bonus for anyone below team leader level (even for sales team) - (5-6 yr tenure with company from grads get you close to team leader if you do really well). Light focus on business accountability and too much fluffy org-building work - e.g. meeting organisation, venue decoration, organize pointless learning sessions

    Advice to Management

    I think it's time for change on P&G culture now. It has been a great company but if it is to stay this way, it needs to seriously learn from Unilever 1) focus back on business results - give people targets and incentives for hitting it, don't measure 50:50 on build biz and build org - decorating office and meetings isn't going to drive topline or bottom line. Wasting other people by organizing pointless training is a mutual waste of time. 2) spend money wisely, significantly reduce the amount of the 'NPD' that makes more personal profiling splash than on the market 3) reduce red tape and speed up decision making, if an initiative takes >1 year from initiation to completion, it is very slow.


  2. Great R&D Summer Internship
