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

Pros

Great wages and benefits, great coworkers and fulfilling work.

Cons

Managements lack of realistic expectations of just how far you can take lean manufacturing. Company still slow to respond to logical solutions in manufacturing complexities. Rotating swing shift makes any work/life balance impossible.

Advice to Management

Listen to your workers doing the work, many times their ideas are the ones that will work best. Stop making illogical decisions. If I make a consumer staple in my hometown why is the product in my local superstore brought in from a plant 750 miles away?

    I worked at Procter & Gamble as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Had a very involved manager and trainer
    -Project was very relevant
    -Leadership truly cared about the intern's experience
    -Everyone who works here is truly VERY SMART.
    -Training is amazing and you get pushed to think

    Cons

    -Working in Fayetteville
    -The work life balance of an intern is fine, but once you start working as a full-time employee it's not as great
    -CMK internship has both undergrads and MBA's (skewed towards undergrads). If you do accept your offer as an MBA grad, you'll start off with a higher salary, but over time (due to smaller salary increases), the undergrad's salary will align with the MBA's. Seems a bit unfair.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    Company offers many opportunities to network, and for the most part it is easy to meet with upper management in your area. Also they offer good benefits.

    Cons

    If you are not a former intern, the chance to move to management roles is significantly lower. For example, if you are a co-op or working in a FT admin role, the ability to move up to a management role is extremely difficult

    Advice to Management

    The discrepancy between co-ops and interns in regards to salary and potential career advancement are enormous.. work on evening the field a bit
