    Pros

    Employee training and development is a priority from beginning to end of career. Great total compensation package. Great company culture, purpose, and values that makes employees proud to be part of the company.

    Cons

    Risk averse culture, slow decision making, too much layer & bureaucracy. Bonus structure starts at 3rd level of management; I think there should be bonus potential at every level.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more share & reapply and bench-marking internally and externally versus encouraging every individual to look for their own unique fingerprint to leave on the organization.

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

    Pros

    P & G provides a positive work environment.

    Cons

    Some areas treat contract/temporary workers with disregard. We are a vital part of the team and should be included in office activities.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have so many meetings that are counterproductive

    Sometimes slower moving given the need for data review/analysis although in recent years the company has shown huge improvement in this area

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security, vacation and healthcare benefits. Global company with many locations and opportunities to move around. Assuming you have a good manager, there are always opportunities to grow your responsibility and learn new things.

    Cons

    Long and uber political process to promotion above the band 2 manager level, especially now that the company isn’t growing. Promotion opportunities are shrinking and leadership is not transparent at all about it, making you think you just need to do the “one extra thing” to set you apart. Great, but it’s still around 15 yrs to a section head/b3 promotion. Also, in engineering most “managers” (salaried employees) don’t manage people until they reach the b3 level and then many are not a therefore terrible at it.

    Advice to Management

    Be way more transparent with the promotion opportunities or lack thereof. Bring back the true open job posting within the company. For ALL levels. Also, stop trying to recruit too late in the recruiting season and then expect top talent. Great talent has a job offer by September of their senior year if not earlier.
