    Current Employee - Brand Manager in Cincinnati, OH

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The ability to work on some of the most iconic brands in the world.
    The ability to work with some of the most creative agencies in the world.
    The experience gained is valuable and attractive externally.

    Cons

    Slowing pace of promotion (due to reorg and the selling off of brands)
    Becoming more top down versus historically bottom up with decision making.
    Compensation is good because of the cost of living in Cincinnati--bonus structures are better elsewhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people in the trenches about how unbelievably complicated it's become to do the simplest of things. Systems need to be overhauled and it you want to remain a promote from within company, you need to restore decision making to middle management.
