    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Its a great exposure working in this company. With this company I was able accumulate working experience in many Asian regions and worked with the smartest people from top schools.

    Cons

    This is a place where internal networking is necessary to get ahead. Work objectives is mostly driven by directions set by business leaders, they may not be the most innovative or competitive solution to win in marketplace.

    I had a few assignments in Beauty category and business strategies are almost quite similar or almost repeated from brand to brand.

    Former Employee - Beauty Consultant in Singapore (Singapore)
    Former Employee - Beauty Consultant in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The money is good if you work hard, not really very stressful and tiring. Get to know more about beauty products.

    Cons

    Too much politics, People who works there usually with lower education, feels like secondary school. A lot of under table things going on which either the management close one eyes or do not know. Those activities can potentially harm the business of SK-II.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to be more good at your job and know what is going on with your staffs before its too late. Bulk purchase is happening in SK-II and at some big counter. The amount of the Bulk purchase is big ( like very big) , this could potentially harm your sales amount. Do not trust what you see on the surface.
