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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Great for a fresh graduate
    Very good reputation - looks great in your CV

    Cons

    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
    Better trainings
