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

    Pros

    - Lots of very smart, dedicated, driven people.
    - Opportunities to work on a variety of categories. With so many different types of roles you should never get bored.
    - Many iconic brands.
    - Always challenging.
    - Generally, people are treated like human beings and not cattle.

    Cons

    - So big that there may be 10 other people working on exactly the same capability you are developing, but you won't know about it until you launch and get the feedback.
    - R&D is more interested in creatively reporting data so their scorecards are green than they are in actually driving the business.
    - Paying for parking at the GO. (Okay, this is whining. But it is obnoxious.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To get the ship moving ahead, we need to get everyone rowing in the same direction. Some functions are more interested in self-preservation than they are in growing the business. That needs to change.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on some of the world's biggest brands, best people across functions and geographies, amazing resources and training. You are often empowered to make decisions and lead. And you are typically surrounded by top tier colleagues.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be frustratingly process driven and very hierarchical. slow to respond. management sometimes believes they know more than the consumer.
