Pros

Pay and benefits. Scheduling allows for time off work. Opportunity for advancement. Tuition reimbursment program available.

Cons

Limited contact with upper management. Transparency within the corporation is limited as well. Time off work for family issues is not valued. Leadership is sometimes biased.

Advice to Management

I would inform them to be more interested in measuring the organizations health from an entry level employees perspective.

    Pros

    P&G has wonderful brands and the scale necessary to compete in all the categories in which it competes. It is a great place to learn about world-class strategies and tools. If you can get an entry-level job (which is very competitive), then you have the opportunity to get exceptional training that will prepare you well for a career at P&G or other companies.

    Cons

    Very insular culture - you must come in at the entry-level ground floor to be eligilbe for advancement. Employees who come in through acquisitions find it difficult to be taken seriously by arrogant managers who think the P&G way is the only way. It is extremely difficult to join P&G mid-career - they like to promote from within. P&G has bloated support functions (compared to other competitors) staffed with people who seem a little too secure and comfortable to really care about good service and support.

    Advice to Management

    P&G has lost many, many good people who haven't fit the mold, and should be more open-minded about career paths, particularly for those who have joined the company through acquisitions. The bureaucracy requires wayyyy too much time to navigate, which is less time spent on value-added pursuits for the company. P&G needs to become leaner and more agile to succeed.

    Pros

    Procter & Gamble is a very diverse company which provides a vast array of opportuniites for young workers to mold their careers. We have a very thorough training process and fairly structured evaluation process. Management tends to rely heavily on the independence of new employees, and place them in positions of significant responsibility early in their carrers. P&G also draws very talented people, which provides a work environment which is stimulating and enjoyable. Work-life balance is valued by senior managment, which makes them flexible when it comes to taking care of personal matters. Rather than focusing on face-time, P&G values your overall work product when it comes to evaluating performance.

    Cons

    P&G is located in Cincinnati, OH, which may be generally considered less than desirable. As a derivative of its location, there is a fair amount of close-mindedness in addressing world issues and contrary political views. Also, since P&G hires very talented people, there is some dissatisfaction with the promotion process, as we are all ambitious people, vying for a limited number of slots in upper managment.

    Advice to Management

    Relocate the company to a "better" city. Stop cutting benefits for newer employees. Focus on organic growth rather than acquisitions.
