    Inconsistent delivery of company policy, direction, and employee development among "managers".

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Challenging work assignments. Diversity in culture and opportunities to work outside the US for those who aspire to that.

    Cons

    Inconsistent implementation of company policy from managers. This has created an atmosphere of anti-team work as individual growth and support is not effectively administered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should have realized many years ago that continuing to support so many different products is a drain on all of the company's resources. Company has struggled in its' financial performance to be top tier and lags behind its' peers. Middle management is overstaffed. This has led P&G to implement a continuation of cost cutting including its’ retirement contributions, salary administration, and decrease in benefits. As P&G has continued to struggle to meet top performance targets, work/life balance has shifted more so to the work side of the equation.

    Great people, great products. Promote from within. Challenging and changing work environment. Long term career path if you want it.

    Pros

    If you really like a challenge, continuous learning and stretching improvement - then P&G is great!

    Cons

    Organizationally, its VERY matrixed. It is very similar to levels of government and the interaction between them (local, state, and federal) If hierarchy and structure are difficult for you to adapt to, it will be hard to love the environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value high performing talent, and let them know they are top performers.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits and a great office culture (depending on the team you are on). You must be equally adept at the business side and networking to succeed here. Sometimes even more with networking. If you are very open to moving/mobility you can have a great career spanning marketing around the globe.

    Cons

    Your career can depend on what roles you accept to keep you visibility up and your career on track. Find a mentor that you can trust to steer your career and that is on the fast track as well for them selves. The bad teams can be horrible. Stay away from Prestige as a whole as you may not be able to move back into main P&G after you go over there.
    Also, the titles are kept very low across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more credence to the categories/teams with low moral or bad culture. it breeds discontent and poor performance.
