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

Pros

If you like overtime this is the place for you. They pay employees pretty well.

Cons

They have some inexperienced managers that make arbitrary or ill-informed decisions. They have a policy not to work any over 60 hours a week, but some employees are forced to work 80 hours a week.

Advice to Management

Move to one Union contract.

    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.
