    Pros

    money, $15/hr to start $20/hr after a year. its not a hard job at all. even though the tests to get in are harder than what the actual job is. 4+ weeks vac just after 5 years. good retirement packages.

    Cons

    no work life balance. alot of butt kissing to get promotions. no organization at all upon management. shift work is a pain to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove head from sphincter.they will generally promote the general screw up before anyone else just to get the screw up off of the packing line.

    Pros

    Huge company, job security, great benefits. The site has a lot of nice people, but in general the culture is very difficult to work with. The need for improvements sometimes overlooks quality.

    Cons

    Long hours, little recognition, difficult to move up from technician to manager level. Most movement will be horizontal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate people on their performance, not on the managers opinion.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    Best place to work at the beginning of your career- recruiters are all over you. Its like getting a second masters because you learn so much and have such an ability to affect the business.

    Cons

    Alot of pressure in brand to deliver more business results than the next guy and do the build the organization activities. Impossible to have a true work life balance. Everyone works on vacation and emails go through the weekend. You'll be much happier with yourself if you just dedicate yourself to your career and don't try to divide yourself between work and home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to play more often so your employees can as well. Don't email from vacation

    Smart people. Great values. A bit slow...well, really slow. Really conservative in pay and bonuses.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    Lots of personal growth and leadership opportunities. There are almost no duds at this company. Great place to kick off you career for training-you'll be hot commodity when you want to leave. The company is held in the highest regard, especially in cincinnati where it's a badge of honor to work at p&g.

    Cons

    It cAn be really slow to move your projects forward because of ho much alignment you have to get from so many people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing still has too much power. The functional areas should be less segregated by now. Managers should be seen as business experts first and functional experts second, instead of the other way around.
