Pros

The best thing about the company is the people. You will meet, make life long friends and have the opportunity to grow through the challenge of working with really great people. There is a high ethic valuing the integrity of products for the consumers. Compensation and training is generous.

Cons

Management can be challenging - shifting direction without much notice or explanation. Sometimes the work life balance is not what you might want. Can be stifling of creativity depending upon your specific group.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to truly support employees in work life balance. They will be healthier, happier and more productive employees. Value diversity of thinking.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in Engineering organization for 5+ years.
    Great Managers. Rarely a bad manager. They are always open to hearing what your passions are and furthermore, will make them happen. Long term security. Lots of opportunity for leadership from the get-go. You get responsibility and challenging work immediately. Great benefits, good salary although not at the top of the Engineering range. GREAT raises, if you are a highly rated employee.

    Cons

    Expectation to move frequently
    Expectation to get promoted and want to work at the highest levels of the company
    Locations are horrible. Especially starting out in your career, all the locations in the US are in small towns where you can't enjoy your 20s and it's nearly impossible to find diversity.

    Slow at innovation - lots of times it seemed like we would do a cost savings project and then later bring it back as an "innovation".

    No concern for sustainability, or at least very slow to jump on the bandwagon. As one of the global multi-billion dollar companies, I expect them to be on the forefront of this trend. Yet, they really, really aren't. Lots of packaging, when they could be working on reducing plastic usage, etc. Definitely a for-profit mindset when leading this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're a great company to work for, but your business focus areas do not lend themselves well to the future and the future generation's desires. Need true flex/work opportunities, need to focus on true social responsibility (not just donating money, and need to use technology to innovate. Your culture and values need to change with the times.
