I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

P&G is very ethical and generally always does the right thing for people (although it may take a while and some dedicated people to cause that to happen). You have to learn the culture and fit into the culture or it's not the place for you, but overall an excellent company that cares about its shareholders and the people working for the company.

Cons

There is a meeting to talk about what to meet about - and they are all scheduled during prime working or lunch hours. Some of the leaders don't understand continuous improvement and just carry the whole thing to a nutcase level. But the depth of knowledge is so great that things usually work out - they just take a LOT longer than necessary.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to what your leaders really know how to do. The level of technical depth and knowledge continues to fall at all levels. The current methods of rating leadership are not working. You are getting too little information from the lower levels about performance of your managers. Continue to use location free roles - it allows increased skills to be available for roles.

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

    Pros

    -Flexible working arrangements.
    -Global company.
    -Large variety of businesses, enabling one to change roles many times without leaving the company.

    Cons

    -Hard to get things done (challenges of hierarchy inherent in a big company).
    -Lack of empowerment at lower levels.
    -Can't leave P&G for another company and come back (P&G is a promote-from-within company).

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking that creating more systems is simplifying.
