Pros

Great opportunity for learning and development. Learn a lot about the business, custoemers, consumers. Opportunity to learn and apply technical skills. You get a lot of ownership of your area of responsibility and get to work with and learn from very talented managers and co-workers.

Cons

Lots of pressure to perform well, fierce competition from peers for promotions, 1 ratings. Tons of complexity and burocracy, lots of different systems from where to pull data, lots of ad-hot analyses done in spreadsheets. Need to compromise Work-life balance to get ahead.

Get rid of rework, complex systems. Streamline processes, aim to reduce complexity.

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, stable company. Well, they asked me for 100 words to write. A lot of very nice people. It feels good to work for a company, or for a brand that everybody knows about on the street. When you launch a new product it is distributed all over the world. Sufficient money to do the research and plenty of equipment if you need to test something. Managers are also better than at other companies I used to work for. Excellent facilities and plants and products that we make are some of the best in the world. If you like new product development it is not a bad place to be.

    Cons

    bureaucracy, not much innovation, very stiff cultureIt. is not the best place for creative people. There are multiple regulations, rules, procedures. Then you have training in procedures and how to follow them. A lot of meetings with a lot of people and nobody to make a decision. So we meet again in a week to get a concensus how to solve the problem. And then in one more week. By the time concensus is reached nothing is left from the original idea. But the pay is quite good, a lot of resources and we haven't had much penny pinching at least until lately. People are very good and friendly. So, I guess, may be there is something to working in teams but you have to get used to that it is very slow process.

    Pros

    P&G hires very smart people. You will learn much from your peers.

    Cons

    The culture is somewhat 'inbred'. They hire mainly from universities. So nearly everyone starts very junior and works their way up. This is the 'promote from within' philosophy they have. However, being a senior experienced hire, I found this insulting. They don't value outside talent. Not invented here syndrome..

    This is a very competitive environment instead of a team based effort. Everyone for themselves. This is reinforced by the staff rotation that occurs within the categories far too often; this hinders organizational memory development.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the changing world more. Learn from other organizations and hire external people.
