    Pros

    Scale, 3 different careers in one place, we really do care about the consumer. Great space, amazing opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Pg used to be one of the greats. We hired the best and the brightest. Now we hire the insecurest and the most self involved. Part of the issue are the logic and personality tests, then the interviews. We only look for leaders not managers. We don't offer any coaching on how to manage people then we turn a bunch of type a 20 somethings loose to manage a team. Those 20 somethings have now turned into 40 something directors with no ability to coach an organization. Take into account that packages have now reached the involuntary stage and you get a Super unpleasant enviroment. The execs at the top have outdated, unreasonable ideas about what is important, Pritchard still thinks facebook will save us in marketing. The leaders fight constantly which causes all projects to slow until we determine "who's is bigger"....there are no longer enough worker ants to save the Queen and moral is the lowest I've seen in 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your heads out of your butts. Ag's vision and leadership never makes it all the way down bc directors think they are smarter than him. Or they are serving their own agendas which is causing drag. Start mandatory job shadowing and management trainging of band 2s and above. Just fyi, cbd college etc. is not helping meglomaniacs be better leaders. What would help is day one "how not to be a self serving jerk training". And make it as important as ethics training is. 8 emails a week lol! Ps you pay the admins that do the real work (and lots of it)horribly. Step it up bc the economy is bouncing back and soon we will exit like rats off a sinking ship!
