    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.

    Pros

    Paid internship including travel and lodging expenses depending on your location
    Clear path of advancement
    Interns can buy employee stock
    Great atmosphere and most people are willing to help you
    The intern program is like a well oiled machine, everything gets done in a timely manner

    Cons

    Multiple levels of management means it could sometimes be bureaucratic and thus hard to get things done quickly
    There's a lot of focus on the stock price (which can be a good thing but in this case it was bad)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be helpful and treat interns like real employees. Be honest with interns trying to work full time on the job availabilities

    Pros

    Great collaborative environment, good compensation, fun work environment. I would just be aware of expectations and time commitments coming into the company.

    Cons

    None really. I loved working for p&g for the entirety of my time. You'll never know when another opportunity comes along, but the training is second to none.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job. The scale back in profit sharing does hurt, but base salaries are awesome. More transparency in the raise/ promotion system would be welcome too.

    Pros

    Huge learning curve in all aspects- from technical to business- directly from the upper level managers and technical leads.
    Great work/life balance- company building facilities promote a healthy lifestyle.

    Cons

    Hidden politics especially to interns- aspects of project not transparent.
    Some employees too aware of the company bureaucracy and visibility of internal tension.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recruiting the best and train them with your invaluable knowledge!
