I have been working at Procter & Gamble
Pros – There is real investment in employees' personal development and true opportunity to advance to much more senior levels. The "promote from within" ethos means that more is invested in existing employees (and recruiting more great people) and that senior managers are not "flown in" from other organizations. The culture is very focused on results delivered and strong performance is very well rewarded, both in terms of compensation and benefits, but also in new opportunities that you are given to progress even further and faster. Overall it is an absolutely fantastic place to work and if you put a lot in you will get a huge amount out again.
Cons – Sometimes can be a too inwardly focused and resistant to learning from the outside.
Huge company, so sometimes there is a tendency to keep doing things "the P&G way" rather than really taking a hard look at whether processes could be improved.
Advice to Senior Management – Don't be scared of the young upstart innovators who are struggling to be heard -- listen to them instead!
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Great benefits package overall
Reasonable work/life balance
Variety of assignments
Lots of great people
Cons – Lack of clear focus/key targets under new CEO (improving in last year but still not great)
Way too little focus on what you deliver & way too much on image & exposure
Lack of transparency on pay & well below inflation payrises for most people over the last 5 years (unless they were promoted in that time)
Advice to Senior Management – Give some clear advice to individuals on what to expect on salary increases,
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
