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 worked at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than a year
Pros – P&G is a great company to have on your CV, I've found that other jobs have been easier to find as a result of working there. The company is young and full of like-minded people who will become friends and there is a maternal feeling about the company which is great for a graduate job. You can expect to get promoted after a few years if nothing goes wrong, sooner if you get to know the right people.
Cons – As a large company I found it could be quite impersonal, I felt a little like the work I was doing didn't matter and that the people I was working with didn't really care about their own work either (speaking purely for IDS).
Advice to Senior Management – Give graduates some more tangible work, stop gratuitously using the term 'project management' for work which is anything but project management.
No, I would not 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,
