    P&G is a vey fair work place that enables employees balance and opportunities to volunteer and give back to communities.

    Program Manager (Current Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    Prosit is a very fair, fact based and results driven environment. The company truly cares about it's employees and the consumers lives it touches globally.

    Consit is a highly political environment.. get perspective from your immediate management on priorities, and ask for help along the way if needed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to weight performance and results for employee advancement and compensation.

    Got what I wanted out of it

    Assistant Brand Manager (Former Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsSmart and capable people, great place to learn how to think critically about marketing and pockets big enough to experience all aspects of marketing.

    ConsCincinnati - being tied to the city forever and indefinitely if you want to grow in the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe bold and make significant changes to how work gets done. Simplify things. Let common sense guide decisions in addition to the data rather than relying on data to replace common sense.

    Heading in the wrong direction

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, competitive salary, incredible history/stability

    ConsDecision making is slow at best. Middle management is rewarded for taking risk instead of delivering results. Company likes to say they hire the best employees when in reality they hire the best employees who are willing to live in Cincinnati.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnable faster decision making, stop rewarding for taking inappropriate risks and wasting company money, take advantage of being a global company and retain/hire the best of the best regardless of location.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Plant Technician (Current Employee)
    Avenel, NJ

    ProsGreat salary, a lot of paid time off for holidays, good benefits package, great company to work for

    ConsTerrible hours, mandatory 3 shift weekly rotation, no room for advancement, no positions available with a steady shift, forced overtime

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of 3rd shift!

    Good work experience, not the company many claim

    SIP Planner (Current Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsBenefits are good, although they are getting more expensive. Nice people, culture is decently relaxed

    ConsPay is awful. Management makes it sound enticing, but when you find out other companies pay 20-30k more for the same postion its a bit demoralizing. Absolutely no room for advancement. If you arent hired as a manager, its just about impossible to become one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop talking about growing leaders and promoting from within, actually do it. Once entry level manangers are promoted, they hire kids right out of college to fill in, leaving deserving employees who have been there for years wondering when their shot is.

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

    Retail Pulse

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsFlexible work schedule, good pay, part time but plenty of hours.Different location each day.

    Conspoor management including regional managers. Corporate does not get it, have never been in the field and therfore difficult to understand the needs of it's employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore flexibility with the employees, necessary tools to complete the job.
