    For those who don't want much responsibility

    Consumer & Market Knowledge Associate Manager (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsChilled out job, not much work pressure, no direct impact on business outcomes, more like a internal consulting function

    ConsNot great career options later on, not much visibility from higher management, secondary function so treatment and salary curves very different from lead function

    Advice to Senior ManagementFragile organization structure

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good People, Good Pay but surely not the highest pay

    Senior Purchasing Manager (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsPeople are overall very collaborative, willing to help, even though everyone is really busy. P&G created its own culture and this culture is shared in all its offices in all countries. Get to go for biz trips no matter which function you are in.

    ConsIt's a big corporate. Things can be a bit slow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    Prosyou get to work with the best people and get trained by great managers.

    Learned a lot, the hard way though

    Finance (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsLots of training and learning opportunity, decent pay

    Constoo much politics and finger pointing, too competitive. Frequent job rotation but little emphasis on proper transition

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to find out if "simplification" projects really simplify or just add more complexity. Senior management only hear from those leading projects, not those supposedly benefit from them. People are rewarded with completing projects rather than proven benefits.

    Great learning experience, strong management, highly competitive environment

    Regional Assistant Brand Manager (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    Pros- Excellent training and coaching
    - Managers are (mostly) competent and
    - Everyone lives and breathes its purpose to 'touch and improve lives'
    - Flexible work hours; workplan is agreed upon between you and your manager, you can come in at whatever time as long as you get your work done

    Cons- Processes are quite tedious and decision making can be slow
    - Very competitive environment which causes some people to choose work over personal life
    - Very easy to get so comfortable in the P&G 'system' that you forget there is an outside world

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood luck to Lafley! Keep things simple and remember that people are your greatest resource.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
