Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Strong Brands. Highly principled and value oriented. Strong bench....top talent across all levels and functions.

Cons

Too much red tape. Even apparent decision makers often have limited responsibility. Org structure and decision rights need fixed.

Advice to Management

Align responsibility and accountability. Give key managers a goal, the flexibility to deliver it, and hold them accountable.

    Company car.
    Lots of responsibility.
    Company Name carries weight.
    Autonomy.
    Ownership of business.

    Cares about their people.
    Tries to do "the right thing"

    Cons

    Lack of innovation.
    Rock stars become average mediocre countrymen.
    Hired to keep the machine going. Not to improve, progress, move forward.
    Style is rewarded over substance.
    Not a safe place to make take risks & learn.
    Losing top talent to competition.
    Some leadership severely out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    Every leader at director level and higher needs a buddy a account executive level for perspective and to provide input into upcoming company initiatives, direction, strategy, etc. I believe this will go a long way in reducing the gap of reality versus perception and then truly enabling organization to win and change the game.

    Pros

    you get paid very well and there are plenty of chances for overtime. Also there are chances for promotions if you are a great worker.

    Cons

    Long work hours, few days off, not enough workers for some jobs and lack of respect from some employees that are above you.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better management of personnel in general labor.
