    I worked at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    company values the whole employee, recognizing that personal interests and professional interests are interconnected

    Cons

    often heavy focus on mobility can cause people to be promoted before they are ready. sometimes this causes issues with the effectiveness of middle management.

    It's a great company for stability, but career development can be more of a long-term plan versus dynamic & fast paced.

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

    Pros

    Enables you to own and manage a significant portion of your work without micromanagement. Typically you will have intelligent and hard working colleagues who collaborate well.

    Cons

    You can get bogged down in systems, but that is more a symptom of sheer company size.

    Pros

    Large company with lots of career paths and lots of options. Large investments in training.

    P&G's size can make it harder to be recognize individual performers. Weak links can also be camouflaged. The size and complexity can also make change and progress slow.

    Pros

    people are incredibly nice! You have to either commit a crime or commit an eggregious error to get fired

    Cons

    terrible work/life balance. Affecting stock price is always top of mind when managers (Band 3+) make decisions. Their compensation is based on it. Look it up - it's called STAR. You will need to go back to the Mother Ship in Cincy to move your career forward. Diversity there is pretty low. They all drank the punch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reconsider COLA for those in SF/ NYC

    Pros

    you get nice retirement the give a percentage of your salary in company stock

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward people for their work not their major

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    Pays well. It trains people well on the skills to become a professional manager, working efficiently with multi-functional teams. Good for fresh graduates.

    Cons

    It's mostly managing people, instead of really building brands, making good products or growing the business. The system is way to be for it to keep up with the innovative spirit.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    Excellent internal systems, organized and focused on achievement. Great opportunities for technical growth. Plenty of lateral growth opportunities. Safety is always first.

    Cons

    Entry Level hire only, slow advancement, stiff management. Little to none employee recognition. Employees don't feel valued. Insane work hours stretching human resources to the limit. Very superficial expressions of gratitude. Stifling rivalry between manufacturing and technical services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly work to make "Life Work Balance" a reality and not a slogan. Show that you value your human resources a lot more than saying it.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    Great salary, global businesses, broad span of responsibility. Great company to join right out of college and get experience - can open up doors for future jobs

    Cons

    reducing benefits every year - not the same company it was 10 years ago, downsizing without removing work, global teams getting too dispersed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a hard look at work-life balance, criteria for promotion (focus more on people dev skills) and what has kept highly motivated top talent employees with the company in the past.....choices in recent years may be having an unintended impact on the future
