    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A&Ts at this company are not given equal access to opportunities and experience as band-level management. Most non-management employees begin their career at P&G as highly-motivated individuals seeking success, but many have their ambitions quashed through a lack of company support. Meanwhile, management-level employees are given every opportunity to achieve and are propelled forward not only through their own motivation, but also through that of the company. To even the workforce and ensure that all employees are performing to the best of their ability (at their "peak"), this gap between management and non-management needs to be closed--particularly with young talent as they begin on their journeys to develop their own careers.

    Pros

    Strong values and a clear sense of purpose. Incredibly capable leadership.

    Cons

    It's a big company. P&G can be fast when necessary but tends to proceed cautiously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making P&G a great place to work.
