    If work life balance is important to you, P&G is not ideal to support that.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    You have many opportunities to grow and stretch yourself if so desire. Benefits/salaries are top notch.

    Cons

    Mangers put in long hours, high demands and very challenging to have a healthy work/family lifestyle. It's more cut throat than ever before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great ideas in trying to instill programs for the health and wellbeing of employees. Provide the opportunities to utilize them.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Values driven company, good pay/ benefits, flexibility to balance life if you can find the time to use them, good managers in my exp.

    Cons

    No room for upward movement and only getting worse as layoffs continue, this with the brand sell offs are contributing to lower morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enjoy and talk the wins more instead of always focusing on "opportunity areas", keep the PVPs at the core of the company, give/increase benefits once in a while vs. always chipping away

    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.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company values, Pay, Company Car, Looks great on a resume. If you start on the right track, you can make it a career for life.

    Cons

    Company Culture looks great on paper but there is no follow-through; employees don't live by it daily as they should. Work-Life Balance, Management was not trained at all and made unethical decisions. Made a terrible experience even worse. You are just a number, no one knows your name. Very political. If you don't start in a good role, your future promotions and assignments will suffer. Make sure you work on a top customer team or you'll never get exposure. Different rules, regulations, and training for different divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your new hires - especially those that intern before accepting a full-time offer. Make sure that all new hires are getting exposure to the same training and events. If not, you're setting some up for success and others up for failure. Train managers of new hires and check in throughout the first two years. P&G promises a lot to the new hires, but has lost some serious talent because of a lack of follow-through. Be transparent with your employees - a lot of them have moved all over the country (and abroad) for the company. If you are going to be dissolving territories/positions, let them know.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very sharp people to work with, lots of resources to learn and grow, and overall a great place to work

    Cons

    Politics especially at the corporate office are really bad. Very difficult to rise into a management position. Generally, if you enter as a non-manager that is the level you will stay during your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the politics and take care of the talent company wide.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work in different categories and different geographies
    Great training ground for marketing/general management
    Amazing talent in most functions
    Purpose, Values and Principles provide a solid foundation for the company
    Great brands

    Cons

    Too much of the career path is determined by who you know and where you work in your first assignment, which is assigned randomly
    Middle management (Associate Directors/Directors) create internal swirl, slowing down work for the project team
    Hard to get promoted beyond Brand Manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Reduce the number of layers to make decision making faster
    2. Bring back Open Job Posting for Brand Managers
    3. Be willing to take risks again... make them smart risks, but be willing to place bets again
