    Great place to work if you are a manager. If you aren't, not so much.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    work environment is fairly casual; no one constantly looking over your shoulder; hours are good

    Cons

    Poor management. Those not on a managerial track are not treated like employees. No checks and balances when it comes to managerial authority. HR will almost always take the manager's side instead of taking employee complaints seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Learning how to manage people with respect will have positive impacts on the business.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    Nice, kind, hardworking people. Great experience- you learn a lot of things that could be useful for future careers. One of the best employers *in Cincinnati*

    Cons

    It is very hard to advance...everyone is competing for the same thing. No bonuses and rarely give out rewards. No one will tell you this (because it's unlawful) -You are expected to work overtime and on holidays without actually logging your time Constantly raising health care and benefits costs People newer to the company will NEVER have any opportunity to get what the older employees are getting out of their profit sharing, due to changed benefit plans (cost savings for the company)

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees incentive to work hard for you by rewarding them appropriately. Don't take anyone for granted. When you say "I work for P&G" you shouldn't be living paycheck to paycheck.

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

    Pros

    Iconic Company that can achieve great things to the benefit of the worlds consumers. Highly ethical in business practices and treats employees well.

    Cons

    In the pursuit of perfection, too much time and money are spent on getting data to make a decision, especially consumer research testing.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer long term strategic business planning needs to be a priority and likely will be a focus under the leadership of the new CEO. Next 6 months will be essential to establish a path forward and I am confident this will happen.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay. Above market rate across all industries. Justifies the long hours. Pay exceeds even that for Director level in some companies, and is one of the highest in the US.

    Cons

    Extremely competitive environment. Company carrying our major layoffs last year and this. Never know if the axe will fall on you next, even though you are rated outstanding. Sale of major beauty brands makes everyone nervous that their job will go next.

    Advice to Management

    Cost-cutting is essential, but has to stop at some stage.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Promote from within culture. Wide variety of business areas allows you to have multiple careers without ever changing companies

    Cons

    Company has list it's way and has become short sighted. New technologies are less frequent and less innovative. Also company has become way too focused on external metrics such as diversity which too often drives decisions. As a result decisions are made based on scorecard metrics vs what really matters.

    Advice to Management

    Walk your talk. Invest in technologies and businesses with promise and stop projects that drag on with no results.
