I have been working at Procter & Gamble

Pros

Pay is pretty good when you start. Great company to have on your resume for market research as P&G is perceived as the thought leader on consumer research.

Cons

MBA's start as a Band 1's and ABM's start as Band 2's. You don't receive a bonus until you are a Band 3 manager. With most roles being 2-3 years each and the number of roles required to get promoted to Band 3... It can be 8-10 years before you get a bonus or get to manage others. ABM's have one less assignment to complete since they start out as Band 2 managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop using coded language during performance reviews... it can be internalized incorrectly by direct reports. Increase the pay for tenured Band 2 managers that have reached tthe top of the salary curve to increase retention.

    Pros

    Great training. Highly intelligent and capable people. Great processes, methodologies, and procedures. Great long term benefits. Great industry reputation and resume builder.

    Cons

    Cincinnati Ohio is the worst thing about working for Procter. Slow organic growth and lean organization is creating more work with less opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in the city and local talent. Offer international opportunities much earlier in employees career (currently after 6-8 years)
