    Pros

    Very sharp people to work with, lots of resources to learn and grow, and overall a great place to work

    Cons

    Politics especially at the corporate office are really bad. Very difficult to rise into a management position. Generally, if you enter as a non-manager that is the level you will stay during your career.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the politics and take care of the talent company wide.

    Risk averse management has drained a lot of the energy from marketing

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work in different categories and different geographies
    Great training ground for marketing/general management
    Amazing talent in most functions
    Purpose, Values and Principles provide a solid foundation for the company
    Great brands

    Cons

    Too much of the career path is determined by who you know and where you work in your first assignment, which is assigned randomly
    Middle management (Associate Directors/Directors) create internal swirl, slowing down work for the project team
    Hard to get promoted beyond Brand Manager

    Advice to Management

    1. Reduce the number of layers to make decision making faster
    2. Bring back Open Job Posting for Brand Managers
    3. Be willing to take risks again... make them smart risks, but be willing to place bets again

    Pros

    The ability to work from home based office minimizes the office distractions. Very loyal employees and unique culture that trains and breeds the highest performing and qualified employees.

    Cons

    Big change in culture over last year with pending divestures. Once very loyal high performing employees are leaving for competitors. The dust never seems to settle and constant restructuring and divesture rumors are causing distraction throughout organizations. Also, if you are not mobile, you will never be promoted at P&G. Non-mobile employees are considered to be "worker bees" and are not considered for promotion in external roles. The "new" way of launching promotions and initiatives from top down vs. bottom up is causing a great amount of rework for customer teams.

    Advice to Management

    Visibility to potential brand divestures vs. having employees speculate based on news media and rumors. Having an entire company that is weary from restructuring and constant changes is wearing on productivity and causing distractions that prevents needed growth.

    Pros

    Great focus on the consumer and best in class marketing training. Strong multifunctional support. Clear strategies and action plans from senior leadership.

    Cons

    Lots of process - a bit of a double edge sword. The processes are great enablers but slow things down and create a less agile culture.

    Advice to Management

    Need to better balance long term and short term goals to achieve shareholder return. Current focus is very short term and not sustainable.

    Pros

    Outstanding Leadership Mentoring and Very talented people. Extremely intelligent and data based decision making and a massive driver of having the employee own their own career.

    Cons

    Very political and leadership does not usually get into the details to understand context. Can also be extremely cliquish. That may be due to its Midwest roots though as that region of the country is very cliquish. Also, experiences can vary greatly depending on site and role.

    Advice to Management

    Simplification is still needed greatly and there should be more of a focus on driving cross functional cooperation than there currently is.
