Pros

great opportunities at a young age, working with great people puts you in a very good environment for learning and training, promote from within forces a focus on people development

Cons

Can be a bit bureaucratic, some managers are too check & control

Advice to Management

you have great folks - unleash them, the higher ups below the CEO level need to take greater responsibility for the results.

    Pros

    Big company-big expense accounts, most of the time. Big company- extensive resources The only reason why I am "recommending this company to a friend" is because of the rewards of having P&G on your resume. Gain leadership skills and experience As an employee specially in engineering you're bound to travel and see the world due to its global footprint.

    Cons

    Big company-long drawn out processes for small and big things Big company-no flexibility, it takes a lot of energy to steer the ship into new direction, thats why "the great P&G" looses to its smaller more flexible competitors. As with big companies you need to have a support group otherwise you and your career are on your own. The company is very conservative, classic, and even old in the way people think. "Touch more people, in more places, everyday"= "we want more money, from more consumers everyday" P&G is not a great company, it is an average company that has great marketing talent. Hence you they will not only market the product they make but, also themselves. "Don't believe the hype" Hey all new graduates, be very careful when P&G is recruiting you, they have a great "wooing" team. After that you will be on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Get your story and your data straight, then give a direction, as opposed to changing the direction multiple times only to result in what the people actually doing the work had recommended in the beginning. Show that you value your employees. Especially your top performers, makes sense right? You will continue to loose great talent if you continue to think you are the "employer of choice" without taking care of your employees. Saying appealing slogans to your employees, like "work/life balance" but accepting them to work 18 hour days to meet project deadlines is not genuine. Off course this won't be fixed since there a scarcer resources everyday in order to meet productivity improvements. Why are 'the employer of choice" salaries lower then the industry? Does not make sense. Oh wait I forgot your paycheck is nice and loaded from the 18 hour days I put in. Congrats
