I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 3 years)
The salary is fairly competitive, the work is challenging with a lot of learning opportunities. Ability to experiment and grow. Great opportunity for hands-on leadership training.
Insane amount of working hours as a Manager (all engineer level positions). Average 10-12 hrs of work every day. Sometimes 16-17 hour workdays ( for a fix, monthly paycheck, no overtime hours are compensated!) After the working hours 7/24 on the phone support. Very often calls during the night/weekends for crisis-management. No respect of holidays/ sick leaves. Mandatory 1 week duty Manager coverage for the whole plant, getting additional calls after working hours. (Compensation is 1 extra holiday the following year.) Extreme levels of stress which is affecting the personal life of the employee, especially as there is no real work-life balance existing here. The work literally never ends...
Advice to Management
Forbid working for more than 12 hours for managers. Employees have often more than 400 overtime hours a year, which lowers the hourly pay of the individual as it is not compensated (suddenly the salary becomes much less competitive...) Reward personal flexibility but not make it mandatory. I used to love this workplace and was planning to have a long-term career with this Company, but now i feel burnt-out, and feel that all the flexibility i was showing was a waste of my time and energy.
Great for a fresh graduate
Very good reputation - looks great in your CV
Almost all initiatives given from the center, no opportunity to be creative just to execute
Some people are really pushy and they are those who get promoted
Very multinational company culture = brainwashing from the first moment
Good washing powder company but poor focus on other products
Trainings consume a lot of time without any bigger value added
Advice to Management
Take more care of who you promote
