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

Pros

Really great co-workers. Smart, caring, and are trying to do the right thing.
Decent mobility within the company with the ability to influence next assignments to get well rounded experiences.

Cons

Leadership cannot look at something without making a new suggestion even if the work is good. Decisions are not delegated down.
Agility is talked but not actually embraced.

Advice to Management

Delegate decisions. Cast a vision and trust your employees to deliver against it versus over-thinking everything that comes across your desk.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a company that treats its employees with respect and eqaulity. Employees are heavily supported through excellent communication, training and resources of all types. Compensation is above average with many added benefits.

    Cons

    In the 8 years I worked for P&G, the pay and organizational structure changed 4 times. There was also a high rate of turnover in middle management, I had 7 different direct managers in 8 years. Some of the mandatory trainings tended to be redundent and overly time consuming.
