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

    Pros

    Very good company culture. People are actually good with some exception, of course.

    Cons

    It's taking too long to do something. The accent is very much put on how this will look in front of the management instead of the real benefits.


  2. "Still great brands & values, but bad place for career"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    1) Prominent brands
    2) Large scale
    3) Bright people - but far from maximized productivity
    4) Reduced but still strong investor confidence / capital (bluechip)
    5) Good to have it on your CV if you stays in the industry

    Cons

    It has gone down-hill last 2-3 years. Not because of down-turn (you can't blame everything on it) - lots of bureaucracy and office politics. What makes you shine/promoted is not 'hitting you target' but 'build your profile'.

    No meaningful bonus for anyone below team leader level (even for sales team) - (5-6 yr tenure with company from grads get you close to team leader if you do really well).

    Light focus on business accountability and too much fluffy org-building work - e.g. meeting organisation, venue decoration, organize pointless learning sessions

    Advice to Management

    I think it's time for change on P&G culture now. It has been a great company but if it is to stay this way, it needs to seriously learn from Unilever

    1) focus back on business results - give people targets and incentives for hitting it, don't measure 50:50 on build biz and build org - decorating office and meetings isn't going to drive topline or bottom line. Wasting other people by organizing pointless training is a mutual waste of time.

    2) spend money wisely, significantly reduce the amount of the 'NPD' that makes more personal profiling splash than on the market

    3) reduce red tape and speed up decision making, if an initiative takes >1 year from initiation to completion, it is very slow.
