I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people, good training. Their PVP's are wonderful on paper.

Cons

Inconsistent direction from upper management in my business group. Some upper mgmt playing favorites. Seems that the more incompetent you are as a manager, the more likely you will be promoted to a different business group. Throwing colleagues 'under the bus' is ignored and in some cases that I've seen, rewarded. PVP's aren't stood by in daily business. Once you leave the company you will never be hired back in any of their business groups - even if you are laid off.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to your people and how they are 'managing' their teams. If you interview team members, you wi;l get the realy story.

    Pros

    You get to test your own product to get coupons to get free products

    Cons

    They are in the process of downsizing and many of the jobs they are not replacing. They just keep adding to everyone's work. It use to be the place to work but now If you want to be over worked, no life career balance and you want to be under paid it may work for you. I've compared to my role and other companies are offering $10M - $20M more. They are not promoting ver much anymore either. All work and NO reward but more work. They are offering a voluntary package to anyone who will take one. What does that say...no one is worth anything there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, you are burning them out and leaving a bad taste in their mouths for P&G. I haven't heard anyone say they like there job. So sad. So many people would leave if they could.
