    Great company with energetic capable people within but with bias management may hinder individual progression.

    Team Lead (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany wellness programs and benefits are quite attractive. Housing and car interest subsidy is a bonus. Very good intensive training in certain departments. When given opportunity, there is many room for progression. Career/ performance mapping for individual helps drives clear objective.

    ConsBias management and some non qualified managers. More transparency required dealing with issues. Not much room for contractors to perform, imbalance work load for employees.

    Procter & Gamble Singapore

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

    Pros1. 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.

    Cons1. 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 Senior ManagementMajor change in benefits required. Need retention plan such as retirement, housing benefits and improvement in maternity and flex comp part of medical benefits.

    A great company for work-life-balance!

    Customer Business Development Manager (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsConstant training and development is encouraged for all levels.

    ConsThis 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    For those who don't want much responsibility

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

    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

    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
