I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart and capable people, great place to learn how to think critically about marketing and pockets big enough to experience all aspects of marketing.

Cons

Cincinnati - being tied to the city forever and indefinitely if you want to grow in the company.

Advice to Management

Be bold and make significant changes to how work gets done. Simplify things. Let common sense guide decisions in addition to the data rather than relying on data to replace common sense.

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

    Pros

    Global roles available. Great benefits including retirement plan that you don't have to match. Frequent change means that roles open up almost daily.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs in certain parts of the company. Low morale because too much work for too few people. Be prepared to work often on nights and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the long term and not just who to cut on this 12-month cycle. Get back to making products that are truly quality and stop figuring out ways to cheapen the product.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, although they are getting more expensive. Nice people, culture is decently relaxed

    Cons

    Pay is awful. Management makes it sound enticing, but when you find out other companies pay 20-30k more for the same postion its a bit demoralizing. Absolutely no room for advancement. If you arent hired as a manager, its just about impossible to become one.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about growing leaders and promoting from within, actually do it. Once entry level manangers are promoted, they hire kids right out of college to fill in, leaving deserving employees who have been there for years wondering when their shot is.
