    I worked at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    Best team, Best Package, perks lots of learning. People in CBD are very closely associated and P&G hire people who are people's people.

    Cons

    CBD needs lots of travelling, so that might be a pro for some and con for others.

    Pros

    Great People
    Great Pay
    Internal Mobility
    Strong Brands, Strong Analysis, and Focus on Brand Building
    Strong Mentoring community
    Midwestern Values (if you like that sort of thing)

    Cons

    Matrix Organization
    Lots of Change
    Management is over managed and therefore over manages
    Conservative
    Slow Moving
    Focus on Profit and Innovation at the same time causes tension in the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the BUs do what they need to do. Manage less, analyze less, make more decisions.
