    Pros

    The people were great to work with.I did store resets. The pay was good and hours were up to you.

    Cons

    Not knowing when the next jobs were coming. Sometimes you had to travel further than might be comfortable with no miles reimbursement.

    Pros

    The people and the diversity they represent
    Flexible hours
    Many experienced coworkers to learn from
    Casual dress if at a tech center

    Cons

    eat or be eaten philosophy for advancing
    chemical engineers are valued above all others and are started at management level while others have to work extremely hard to get to the same place
    so many rigid rules, slows down everything
    Even though the majority are introverts this is an extrovert rewarding company,
    It seems the louder you complain and the more obnoxious you are then you are pretty much guaranteed advancement, no understanding for introverts who end up doing a lot of the work

    Advice to Management

    Stop avoiding conflict and address problems head on, stop moving bad apples from team to team....stop the negative behavior so the rest of us don't have to continue to suffer.
    All of those people who are constantly sucking up to you aren't doing the work, it is those of us who are the work horses that have to do it, reward the people who really have the ideas and do the work
    Stop being so detail oriented and start looking at the big picture, we are drowning in unnecessary tedium.

    Pros

    Good benefits and generally good pay.

    Depending on the business unit you're working with and level of your role, you can get paid well

    Cons

    A&T or hourly employees are not placed on a high priority scale

    Middle management is woefully inept.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within other business units

    Pros

    1. The people
    2. The brands
    3. The science

    People are great here. Most are kind and great collaborators. The brands you work on are iconic, massive, and made with exceptional quality. The science behind the formulation and process is outstanding and very cool to work on.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, P&G offers a much slower technical track for chemists and biologists coming into the company then it does for its engineers. I would say an average of 10 years is required to make the technical level of an incoming engineer (and many researchers never get promoted to that level).

    Despite this, p&g is a great place for a BS scientist to start their career.
