I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Brilliant coworkers, earn stellar job experience and training, good benefits, great company culture and focus on values. Very principle and performance-based

Cons

Needs more agility, compensation and benefits probably need an overhaul. Agility is suffering to scale; the company might be on its way losing its prestige as an employer

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great marketing university with amazing opportunities to learn and train - both theoretically and practically.
    You can meet good people around the world with whom you'll stay in touch for a lifetime.
    There are some great brands which can truly inspire you and make you passionate about your job.

    Cons

    After some time you realise that many things which are proclaimed/advertised in the beginning (and which made you join the company) are just words and the reality is totally different, e.g. career based on review of performance, work and life balance, values and principles of the company etc.
    Career is very slow due to tough times in the company, with all the experience you get you barely have a chance to have people management experience within 5 years (or even more) which makes you less competitive on the job market.
    The company is very big thus not very agile to changes, too process driven and it is hard to be innovative and truly make the difference in a rapidly changing environment as everything has to be aligned with a dozen of stakeholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a strong need to give employees an opportunity to drive the change - not via their management or HR which can be corrupted and have their own interests but have the resources to provide their honest feedback and proposals and see real actions on it. Current systems do not work.
    Career development process is not transparent and depend on personal relationships and management/mentors influence which is totally against what is proclaimed in the company. Very often you just hear people talking why someone got promoted while another person who deserves it more did not. The reality should be in line with the promises.
    Top rated people are leaving the company more and more often to share their knowledge with competition while P&G is continuously hiring and developing "cheap" temporary employees. There must be something wrong in the system - the world is moving on with its rapid development while career planning in P&G stays almost the same and it doesn't respond to people needs.
