great company values / culture, a lot of independence at lower levels

Pros

P&G walks the talk on values - there is a commitment to doing things right, employees are very much looked after, feels like a 'golden cage' at times ;) the culture and people are great, regardless of the part of the world you're in. apart from senior mgmt levels, the org structure feels 'egalitarian' rather than hierarchical. I've found many people to learn good leadership from - and willing to guide & help me on the way, too.

this is my first job so unable to compare to others, still talking to friends it feels like you get a lot more independence / responsibility early on than elsewhere (esp. in the IT department, referred to as GBS, which I work in today)

Cons

I'd need to be really mean to find downsides of working here :) much depens on what you want in your career - definitely what you can learn in an internal IT dept in an FMCG company that promotes from within has its limits. still, highly recommended as a great place to learn leadership in & a caring employer.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits. supportive practices on diversity, flexible work etc.
    Consistent training/understanding of functional expertise
    Opprtunities to work abroad and gain international experience as you get more senior.
    Huge organisation, so a lot of your experience depends on matching your skills to the right team. Always go for the manager/challenge vs the big brands.
    Great opportunities to get experience across categories within the same company.

    Cons

    Up or out for key functions. i.e. if you're not consistently in the top 20% you are expected to leave. This causes issues when you're having tough times/ young children etc. Even though they have policies which are supposed to deal with this, it effectively means that women in child-bearing years are disadvantaged. No support other than 'advice' for child care also puts additional strain on trying to succeed as a woman.
    Tough times forcing productivity cuts - some of which are harming the ability to create breakthrough ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back capabilties /resources to find breakthrough inspiration/innovation
    Organise childcare facilities for working parents

    Pros

    Doing your best is never enough! Fight everyday for smac standards and a lot of procedures. Big challenges in a continuous way.

    Cons

    To change a light it's imperative to have a procedure! Everyone wants and can to contribute with your maximum potencial.It's not true even in Procter & Gamble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work and career are very important, but our life should be also.
