Pros

If you like overtime this is the place for you. They pay employees pretty well.

Cons

They have some inexperienced managers that make arbitrary or ill-informed decisions. They have a policy not to work any over 60 hours a week, but some employees are forced to work 80 hours a week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move to one Union contract.

    Pros

    Nice well run company. A legacy of strong brands. Some two dozen billion dollar brands. Driven by consumer understanding and best in class technology.

    Cons

    Some of the down-sides of working at P&G include: (a) It's a large organization and one can easily get "lost" in the maze, (b) It's a tough place for introverts, women and minorities to make it, and (c) work-life balance really sucks especially now that we are focusing so much on improving productivity driven in part by threats of more (5%) layoffs coming in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (1) Take fear out of the culture! (2) Do things to improve work-life balance. (3) Truly invest strategically in the innovation pipeline across the company. Not just Design. (4) Support diversity & inclusion and truly ensure that women and minorities truly get a fair shake especially in the TCS technical career system.

    Pros

    Lots of access to training, decent salary, flexible work arrangements, and the ability to move around the company over time are all perks of working here.

    Cons

    Some of the work doesn't feel very meaningful, its difficult to advance, teams dont really feel much like teams - more like co-workers, easy to get comfortable and not reach your potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees at all levels to do things differently, create new paths, and not get stuck on the beaten path. It feels like we are too worried about process and not about innovation.
