    Pros

    You are very well-compensated at P&G. Even administrators retire with seven-figure 401ks. The profit-sharing program is extremely lucrative.

    Cons

    Once you're coded 'sales' or 'marketing' there is very little flexibility to do anything, but what upper management feels you should be doing.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees an opportunity to explore other functions within the company. It might help you retain more of your younger, diverse sales force.

    Pros

    The company generally does value employees, tries to make work meaningful and investing in capabilities; you can really learn and experience a lot across a range of roles.

    Cons

    Political and cliquey. Death by a million processes and policies.

    Advice to Management

    P&G hires real smart people. Sometimes,to justify all these smarts, it leads to unnecessary or overly complex changes in products, processes or structure that does more harm than good. K.I.S.S.

    Pros

    Great leadership in the engineering department. They truly emphasize the "Promote from Within" culture and a lot of the senior management were promoted from the company

    Cons

    Not global pay. I was offered a local pay in China which was significantly lower that in the U.S. So I declined the offer

    Pros

    Awesome profit sharing benefits, surrounded by really bright people, great variety of roles within you get to learn from different areas and be part of teams doing awesome things

    Cons

    If you're in North America it is really, really, really hard to get promoted. Many more mid-level managers than needed is never a good thing if you want to progress professionally. Not impossible, just really, really, really difficult. Also too much weight given to network, sponsors (if you're lucky to have powerfull ones) and what school you went to (and what key leaders went to that same school) make the process a bit unfair.

    Advice to Management

    We need to people with hard skills at the top, not just the flashy, traditional "go-getters". Diversity in thinking is more important than in appearance, that is the only way the Company will continue leading into the future in a more diverse world.

    Pros

    Large successful company who gives back to the community. Great for flexible work arrangements. Benefits are good with ample amount of vacation days.

    Cons

    Little fish in BIG pond. Hard to get recognized for good work completed. Hard to get promoted on a less than full time schedule that P&G itself promotes.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize people even for small accomplishments.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on Tier 1 brands, access to resources, fantastic training, talented peers.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical, sometimes too process driven, focused on near term gains, with minimal regard to long term brand impacts (2 - 3 year management rotations)

    Advice to Management

    It's not enough to hired the most talented folks from out of school, there has to be a plan to help these individuals grow, a post hire checkpoint on performance.
