    MS&P (Current Employee)
    Budapest (Hungary)

    ProsQuality of people is awesome at Procter and Gamble. You work with people who could be your friends and from whom you may learn every week.

    ConsLevel of stress can be high sometimes; work-life balance usually suffers as a result - the root cause is usually that workload could be higher vs. competitive companies.

    A perfect opportunity to develop

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    Budapest (Hungary)

    ProsYou are responsible for your own project
    you have a mentor who helps you get settled and with advices during your work
    you have to present and get feedback about your work to top local management
    after a successful internship you get a job offer

    Consthe program is quite a stress test
    you might feel lost at the beginning
    but after you got used to the idea, that you are responsible for your project and find the people in the company who can help you with information and insight it will be fun

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great learning opportunities at all levels, but pretty much that's all...

    Supply Chain Planner (Current Employee)
    Budapest (Hungary)

    ProsI joined as an A&T (admins&technicians) so my review is from that PoV.
    - Real responsibility from day 1
    - Great learning opportunities at all levels, at all assignments.
    - Smart people to work with
    - You can peak into lot of areas
    - Some outstanding low and mid managers both in people management skills and in business/technical knowledge

    Cons- Work/life balance is close to be non-existent
    - as an A&T, 'looking out of the box' is hard due to the workload in one concentrated area
    - starting salary below the regional average for the job, it gets better if you get your raises the way they promised (much dependent on your manager)
    - promotions depend too much on your immediate manager - so your salary path can become quite flat
    - there's a 'glass ceiling' between the managers and the A&Ts, getting promoted to manager level takes at least 5 years regardless of your talent or abilities, yet you can have a fresh graduate with zero experience and Supply Network knowledge presented as your next manager - or worse, you can get one from a completely different area with zero former experience/studies in the field of SN. SN managers are rarely promoted from within.
    - limited number of interesting A&T jobs to choose from for rotation
    - usually way understaffed, driving a tremendous number of overtime hours, uncompensated but required, which leads to big fluctuation

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate real 'fast track' career path for A&Ts as well and help the selected ones grow.

    Great company to learn the fundamentals of brand building and to develop yourself.

    Brand Manager (Current Employee)
    Budapest (Hungary)

    ProsThe people are amazing, the trainings are very interesting, and overall you work on strong brands with market leadership and have a strong budget to really execute great campaigns.

    ConsIt is a huge company so things move slower than you would like sometimes, which is evident by the number of processes and procedures that are involved in running the day to day business. Overall great people with great ideas, but sometimes things just don't get done the way you would have wished because of a lot of barriers involved in working in a giant of a company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more in touch with the frustrations of the "soldiers" who are executing the plans, as they have the true insight of what's going on in the markets, what is happening with the customers/consumers, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Multi, multi, multi

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Budapest (Hungary)

    ProsGreat for a fresh graduate
    Very good reputation - looks great in your CV

    ConsAlmost all initiatives given from the center, no opportunity to be creative just to execute
    Some people are really pushy and they are those who get promoted
    Very multinational company culture = brainwashing from the first moment
    Good washing powder company but poor focus on other products
    Trainings consume a lot of time without any bigger value added

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more care of who you promote
    Better trainings

    Great place to start, not so great once you grow

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Budapest (Hungary)

    Pros- strong learning curve and great exposure to a lot of responsibility from day 1
    - mostly smart people from whom it's easy to learn
    - strong, nurtured culture and history/tradition

    Cons- politics (and there is more every day)
    - direct manager can impact one's career to too big of an extent
    - shady and political rating session

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent about expectations, grading and promotions.

    P&G - a place to learn a lot

    Finance Manager (Current Employee)
    Budapest (Hungary)

    ProsGreat learning opportunities by the frequent changes of assignments, you can try basically anything you are interested in. Very knowledgeable management to learn from, lots of opportunities both in and outside your homecountry. You can grow a lot within a reasonable time frame, and management takes into account your own carreer aspiration as well. Very dynamic and young working environment. You are given full responsibility basically as of the first day.

    ConsOvertimes are not compensated, but typically required driven by the heavy workload you are given, so managing work-life balance and succeeding in your carreer at the same time could be a bit tough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo review employee resources and consider going up with the headcount a bit rather than overload people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
