I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great work experience, job rotation & trainings.
Good colleagues in the same age bracket.
If you like traveling, P&G can offer lots of opportunities.

Cons

Slow promotion process & lots of paperwork.
If you are very sharp and looking for a fast paced career, maybe P&G is not the company for you. If you like stability, predictability and a strong overall company, look no further.
Too many processes and lots of paperwork lead to frustration at every level in the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Projects and launches should be approved faster and all things should move at a faster pace in general.

    Pros

    Well run processes and internal people development tools.

    Cons

    Large organization, budgets are ruling every internal decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees move around the organization more. Cross-functionally or cross-geographies. It's not as easy as it sounds (almost impossible!)

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    1. Amazing school of leadership: pushes you to always give your best of yourself to your business - and to your people
    2. Outstanding quality and diversity of people: typically quoted by those who've left the Company as the #1 thing they miss from P&G. In any P&G location, you typically work with people from (at least) 10+ nationalities
    3. Growth opportunities: you can make your entire career at P&G and never get bored. While not every one will end up being promoted Director, every one can be offered vast opportunities across business, functions and regions.

    Cons

    1. Making a successful career at P&G requires the discipline and the resilience of an endurance athlete. You can achieve a reasonably good work life balance (and the Company encourages you to do so), but it takes some time to find your own balance given the large responsibilities, the fast moving competitive landscape and the constant strive for excellence.
    2. The P&G culture tends to over intellectualize decisions, which in turn lead employees to spend more time discussing ideas than executing them with excellence. The return of AG Lafley as a CEO is greatly helping to bring back a simpler focus on what really matters.
    3. You need to be smart at communicating your results and development potential. Don't be arrogant - but don't be passive either. This is the downside of working in a Company that has so many great talents...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Continue supporting 'people caring' principles / policies: they make a big difference in employees' life and have an incredible impact on people's loyalty.
    2. Promote a 'dialogue' vs. 'presentation' style for making decisions. 'Presentation' style creates an advocacy mindset, requires many internal alignment steps and tends inhibiting people's creativity because they want to be sure they will say the 'right' thing
    3. Start officially rewarding people for simplification. I would start by encouraging people to speak plain language - not acronyms that mean nothing to our consumers and families. That will simplify our thinking, which in turn will simplify our decisions and their execution.
