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

    Pros

    Extremely good trainings; you can easily get along with everybody as the majority are quite young and positevely ambitious; salary growth is quite rapid; career path is generally planned for a long period ahead.
    In general, the company is far ahead of the majority of competitors in terms of business processess and practices.

    Cons

    You may feel a bit of conservation while working there; the promotion is not always given to those who probably deserves it most but generally the rules are clear. Work / life balance is not always the case but if you are eager for work you will get the reward

    Pros

    Values, people, business processes are at great level. There are a lot of responsibility you have from early stages of your career. That is great.

    Cons

    I see no cons in working on this company despite my desire was to become a soccer player. However if there were more sport activities in the company I would be more satisfied.

    3. Productivity pressure - people start to get overworked
    4. Shrinking importance of service functions - will cause problems in the future
    5. Management hypocrisy, as in all corporations (e.g. awesome new Flex @ work program, when in reality there is not much behind it). Generally tend to present things as if they were much more than they really are.

    Pros

    They invest a lot into people development. Good people work there. The process of carrier development is very transparent, so you know what you will achieve depending on your efforts/talants.

    Cons

    Slow business desicion process, too many alignments are needed. People management is possible averagely after 5 years of work.
