    I worked at Procter & Gamble part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for with great benefits even for part time workers. We recieved shares of company stock if we worked over 1000 hours a year. Had access to health insurance if we worked 1000 hours per year. Heck we even recieved an annual Christmas package from the company filled with P&G products and some fine gifts, including travel bags, lugggage and and various special gift items, like stadium blankets with the Corporate logo on them.

    Cons

    P&G relaced it's whole retail merchandising division with third party venders. and are now diivesting themselves of numerious brands. They company needs to take a look back at the previous CEO who eliminated the Merchandising positions , and helped bring back the CEO who hired all of those mrechandisers in the first place. A.J. Lafley.
    We were getting the job done and keeping our merchandise on the shlel and helping introduce and support new and existing products.!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring baack the old merchandising staff and employees and We can get the job done for you again, without elminating nmerous brands.

    Pros

    There are great opportunities within the company to grow and learn, expand experiences, work globally, work across functions and change roles with flexibility and work life balance

    Cons

    As with all large global companies, there are draw backs including slow decision making and other politics. Promotion can also be challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is honest and works hard to work toward company goals and help their employees work toward their goals. The recent announced brand reduction has created a lot of buzz and potential opportunites.
