I have been working at Procter & Gamble as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Countless number of people, cross divisions, who are more than willing to help you succeed and mentor you throughout your experience. Very transparent feedback at midpoint presentation and at final presentation. The full-time offer is yours to lose - they set you up very well to get the job is you want it.

Cons

Difficult to keep up with learning the business, understanding the responsibilities and completing projects in short 12 week internship

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the complete transparency. Makes it really easy to learn

    Current Employee - Principal R&D Researcher in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    P&G is great place to find Job mobility. Almost no one is doing the job they came in the door with, and they believe very strongly in cross-disciplinary moves. P&G also has a very Competitive Salary & Profit Sharing program. Finally, P&G is a place full of good people! There are always a few bad apples, but my experience has been overwhelmingly positive.

    Cons

    P&G is a large company, and this presents some unavoidable realities. It is difficult to find true leaders in middle management who understand their role as critical decision makers. There is a whole layer of unnecessary work, performed by a healthy layer of unnecessary people. However, with a bit of attention, one can avoid being mired in this layer and stay focused on the work they love.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on R&D

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall, Procter people are smart, dedicated, and down to earth. Colleagues easily become friends and there is an overall high level of congeniality. The quality of people is P&G's biggest strength. The Company also has a pretty amazing 175 year history pioneering many firsts and in general is a leading innovator in many areas including brand building, products innovation, functional capabilities, and how it conducts business. There are a lot of resources in terms of people and budget to get stuff done (if you can navigate in the bureaucracy). The number and variety of career opportunities is very strong. I am proud to work there.

    Cons

    The P&G organization is over-matrixed and over-layered and there are too many competing agendas from different groups that dramatically slow down taking actions and decisions to the detriment of winning in the market. There are a lot of scale groups that span P&L's who don't add much value yet breed a lot of complexity. I believe internal complexity resulting in slow actions and missed opportunities is the main reason P&G has underperformed vs. key competitors over the past 5+ years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    De-matrix and de-layer the organization to enable more focused business ownership and improve agility -- unleash the talent that P&G people have toward winning in the market vs. transacting with each other.
