I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time

Pros

Tons of training, they definitely invest in your learning and growth, there is a sense of pride in how tough it is to get a job at P&G that they will instill in you.

Cons

Huge amount of internal politics that mean if you want to get ahead and promoted you'll have be a big butt kisser. I get the sense that managers fail upwards, that they are the ones that are able to navigate the internal politics, rather than be the best at their job.

    Pros

    Early responsibilities, big exposure, dynamic, challenging, great colleagues overall

    Cons

    Executive team focused on self interest, to progress to senior level you need to belong to one of the clubs and have seniority, for senior levels it's not about meritocracy or capability, it's about your internal network and who pushes for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go back to the PVPs and care about the shareholders long term value and not your legacy or retirement
