I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time

Pros

The company generally does value employees, tries to make work meaningful and investing in capabilities; you can really learn and experience a lot across a range of roles.

Cons

Political and cliquey. Death by a million processes and policies.

Advice to Management

P&G hires real smart people. Sometimes,to justify all these smarts, it leads to unnecessary or overly complex changes in products, processes or structure that does more harm than good. K.I.S.S.

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

    Pros

    Strong values and ethical standards; lots of training available across many disciplines - e.g. leadership, coaching, organization, etc.; quality benefits; brilliant minds; working to improve employee flexibility options; profit sharing; overall, a good start up training ground.

    Cons

    Not entrepreneurial enough; too much emphasis on hierarchy vs. partnerships; agree on previous comment - too many meetings, and alignment is difficult, even for small decisions which impedes progress; slow and difficult to get promoted; salaries are lower than industry standard; loss of valuable employees, and no back-fill implementation; high stress environment; and challenging work/life balance depending on function and management.

    Advice to Management

    Drive more acceptance top down for employee flexible arrangements given the work/life balance issues - e.g. work from home; flex hours, etc. vs. having it be at the manager's discretion.


  2. "A Stable place to build a lifelong career"
