    Current Employee - R&D Scientist in Singapore (Singapore)

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

    Pros

    1. New technical center with many talented enthusiastic new hires who are eager to learn.
    2. Interesting projects.
    3. Very beautiful state of the art technical center.
    4. Nice location.
    5. Friendly helpful management.

    Cons

    1. No retirement plan in P&G Singapore. It's very different policy than other countries.
    2. Bad medical insurance, particularly if you are foreigner. For example, the maternity benefit pays only about 25% of child delivery costs in Singapore. Many employees are forced to send their wives to their counties of origin (China, Sri Lanka, India, Italy etc.) during that time just because they cannot afford having the baby in Singapore. Medical insurance is below par. NUS, ASTAR, Indian software companies operating in Singapore have far better coverages. For example, many companies have cashless system while visiting doctors.
    3. Flex comp part of medical benefit is for visiting general practitioners, emergency and specialist visits (that is, everything excluding hospitalization). This is only about $2700 which can hardly cover much if you are married and have kids.
    4. No housing or travelling allowances for local hires.
    5. Overall Human Resources has done a pathetic job while setting compensation and benefits which is responsible for high turn over rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Major change in benefits required. Need retention plan such as retirement, housing benefits and improvement in maternity and flex comp part of medical benefits.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Constant training and development is encouraged for all levels.

    Cons

    This is a multi-layer hierarchy, and personal growth may be slow for the fast pacers. In some cases, decision-making can be very top-line and may be a challenge to move things rapidly.

    Pros

    I love the flexibility and work-life-balance.

    Cons

    Slow progression, with vague guidance on promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs more exposure to the 'real world', they have been in their comfort zone far too long to be agile and sharp in decision making.
