    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (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.
