    I have been working at Procter & Gamble as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Countless number of people, cross divisions, who are more than willing to help you succeed and mentor you throughout your experience. Very transparent feedback at midpoint presentation and at final presentation. The full-time offer is yours to lose - they set you up very well to get the job is you want it.

    Cons

    Difficult to keep up with learning the business, understanding the responsibilities and completing projects in short 12 week internship

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the complete transparency. Makes it really easy to learn

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great job security, Its really hard to get fired at P&G. Even if you do the minimum amount of work you can still impress people. Sometimes I see employees only do one real task in a day.

    Cons

    Low to middle of the road pay, redundancies, and lackluster middle management. For the amount of work that I and my co workers do in CS we should be payed at least 40k/annual. Most of us are severely under that and it is really hard to care about a company if you don't feel they're caring for you. Working in CS means that I'm the whipping post of the company. Regularly, someone is calling to try to get something for free or tell me how terrible of a person I am because their order didn't come on time or that there was a little product left at the bottom of the bottle that they couldn't use and they want a refund. I've been cursed at, insulted and demeaned.

    Its just the nature of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Be in touch more with the movers and shakers of the company.
