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

    Pros

    Excellent Company with highly talented Managers and Employees. P&G is a very well run Company. Their Organizational Design is focussed on getting optimal business results.

    Cons

    The size and complexity of the Company may sometimes make decision making process slower than needed. The growth rate and share holder value has not been stellar in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    Solid management style. Need to improve competitiveness relative to peer group. Share holder value has not kept pace with S&P 100.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment where veteran employees take young, inexperienced professionals under their wing. Plenty of opportunities to grow and expand. Collaboration, innovation, and creativity are key to success. Flexibility to handle family responsibilities and be productive in work flow.

    Cons

    Overly competitive for few promotions. Easily can be overlooked even when you are eligible and deserving of a promotion. You may not always have the best management support at your side. Roll out of new trainings and changes are not always very effective nor easy to understand. Hiring of managers aren't always good fits for the roles given.

    Advice to Management

    Consider peoples' interpersonal skills when hiring new managers. Consider inquiring with prior people they have worked with when hiring internally. Be more organized with roll outs as they often create a lot of confusion and unnecessary stress on employees.

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

    Pros

    1) Value oriented company - always doing the right thing no need to worry being asked to do something you don't think is not correct.

    2) Cares on work life balance, with some small exception as in every place

    3) Cares on learning and career of the employees. Provides lots of training, and tools to assess your results and career

    4) People is very friendly

    5) You get to work with people around the globe, and few people with potential and good results have opportunities to relocate to other countries temporarily.

    6) You rotate roles every 2-3 years if you want, and you can normally pick what you want to do next based on your career objectives

    Cons

    1) is not growing, and is actually in productivity mode which makes growing much slower and harder than previously

    2) Yearly assessment of result is competitive against peers with defined spots for top, medium, low performers - the competition some times makes environment bad

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to renovate the culture, get out of the corporate world and more towards the "start up/millennial" mode to foster an environment of innovation across the people --- is also good to renovate the leadership with younger people with fresh ideas.

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

    Pros

    Value Driven Culture, decent pay, global job opportunities, budgets and assigned responsibilities allow you to do stuff - from quite early on, lots of training (formal and through mentors), relative career transparency

    Cons

    Overly discussion/compromise and process driven - that makes decision taking slow and waters down plans to 'lowest common denominator'. Marketing philosophy and strategy have aged and change is very slow to come.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize. Strategies and tactics that make it through the burdensome budgeting, resourcing and approval processes are too often outdated. It feels like P&G Top Management strategy is 'I wish it was like in the 90ies again'.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    you can make your own schedule. The district manager is really cool and sweet. very understanding company. plus essentially you work for Procter and Gamble and there are chances of elevating

    Cons

    being on the counter. You always have the chance of dealing with a customer that is not so understanding and probably will curse at you. You also have to remain standing most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any management advice. I'm not in that position all of my managers are really cool. I do know that they don't hire managers you start at the bottom and make your way to the top.
