    Pros

    Salary , Benefits, Professional Company in every way.

    Cons

    Change was the norm from corporate even if everything was working fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When programs are working don't necessarily revise and change just because someone is trying to justify their job.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble

    Pros

    Great People
    Great Pay
    Internal Mobility
    Strong Brands, Strong Analysis, and Focus on Brand Building
    Strong Mentoring community
    Midwestern Values (if you like that sort of thing)

    Cons

    Matrix Organization
    Lots of Change
    Management is over managed and therefore over manages
    Conservative
    Slow Moving
    Focus on Profit and Innovation at the same time causes tension in the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the BUs do what they need to do. Manage less, analyze less, make more decisions.

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

    Pros

    Fast development of leadership skills, good place to learn new professional skills, good perks, relatively clear-cut career path for the marketing professional.

    Cons

    A lot of work, large organization where the "right arm does not necessarily communicate well with the left arm", very young employee age average making it often hard to find someone more senior to look up to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify bureaucracy to minimize jumping through hoops for everything, take in less interns and keep more full time employees, decentralize training programs and use more external training sources (too many "internal training programs").
