    Pros

    P&G employees are some of the most collaborative & intelligent people you can find. My coworkers help me to become a better employee and a better person every day.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring and downsizing has led to a significant change in employee morale over the past couple of years. It was a great place to work 5 years ago, however I don't feel that the company is looking out for the best interests of its employees the way it used to. Hitting financial and productivity goals is the main focus these days.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    P&G develops leaders by giving them high responsibilities from day one. They also give you the opportunity to get broad experience in different functions. I consider P&G my post graduate college.

    Cons

    This is a company that offer a career and growth from within. Unfortunately, it come to a point when there are just few positions for tons of candidates making really hard to advance.

    Pros

    Great benefits and wages. Was a union job when there. But looked as if they the company wanted them out.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Pace allows you to learn new skills, while still performing at your maximum. You own your career, so if you want to move into a new role, it'll definitely happen. Good salary (compared to other consumer goods companies). You get to work on some very exciting state-of-the-art technologies.

    Cons

    You hear people that has worked here for 10+ years and they will tell you about the golden days when the company was growing and expanding (those days are gone now). Company is too big, something that slows down the innovation pipeline. You have to work on the pre-pre-meeting, to align people for the pre-meeting, and then wait a few months to get a final decision.

    Advice to Management

    Bet on several small projects instead of looking for a silver bullet that will save the company. This is just statistics, nobody puts all their eggs in a single basket. Millennials are eager to help the company succeed, but absence of opportunities will affect the long term growth of the company. Be careful with the head count reductions, this affects employee morale.

    Pros

    Great company with strong integrity. Values the individual as well as the business. Sets challenging goals and actively develops talent for the long term

    Cons

    Large company with multiple layers of management and organisations. As with any large multi national company this can add additional layers of beuracracy

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the people and setting clear and challenging goals focusing on the core portfolio. Actively challenge talented employees to deliver above expectations.

    Pros

    The people are generally very smart, and the support structure is fairly expansive. You can feel secure in your job so long as you do it well.

    Cons

    The large structure makes advancement more difficult than at smaller companies. That being said, there was plenty of learning experience for interns.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice for it to be more transparent in how a career would unfold. It was unclear what full-time employment would be like.
