    Former Employee - Senior Account Executive

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

    Pros

    - Culture of developing it's people
    - Company you're proud to work for
    - Consistent performer and plans well for the long-term

    Cons

    Your potential feels diminished as you become a part of a "process" for developing talent. If you don't plan on staying at P&G for 30 years, then you'll be challenged by the slow pace at which career progression and true large scale responsibility/ownership is given to you.
