I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I had the privilege of working with good bosses - five and all female, throughout my three years there. Also loved the diversity of cultures/nationalities, good benefits including work from home policy one day a week. Fantastic training ground in marketing and brand management and working with agency partners.

Cons

As with any huge multi-national, lots of processes, red tape and bureaucracy. Many hoops to jump through just to get a simple business plan and budget approved, by which time smaller, more agile competitors are probably two steps ahead of you. HR doesn't add much value to the business other than trainings and exit interviews. Even for the exit interview, the HR manager didn't seem committed to setting it up and I should not even have bothered pushing for it if the company wasn't interested in taking feedback and acting on it.

Advice to Management

There's a reason why P&G is good at developing people who end up as CMOs in other MNCs, but not CEOs. Find out why and work on it.
