    Pros

    Learned a lot from working with great people. Had good opportunities to experience multiple markets and brands.

    Cons

    Market is getting more competitive and as a consumer goods giant, P&G's agility is not very agile in adapting to fast changing market situations.

    Advice to Management

    Need to simplify many systems that are slowing down business process and decision making.

    Pros

    Early learning opportunities and ownership of big projects.

    Cons

    Too much internal selling, taking the focus out of what the consumer really wants. Organization structure is just too silo-ed, such that many responsibilities are duplicated and require tremendous amount of influencing.

    Pros

    great learning experience. learn leadership skills; multicultural exposure. It used to have a great work life balance for the employees.

    Cons

    the company has become over- complex. People spend majority time managing processes vs. actual work. Again a lot of great marekting doesnt seem tocome from P&G because of these reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the organization, processes for the entire organization. this will enable teams to move faster and perform better. Cutting resources doesnt necessarily mean organization simplification. need to make choices on the work as well
