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

    Pros

    Paternity leave is four weeks! Profit sharing is 100% funded. Medical is good. They have benefits for every category. Relocation package is absolutely killer.

    Cons

    Locations, such as Iowa, Ohio, Utah, etc.. No 401k match. 401k is traditional. Not for technical engineers. Interview process is intense and long.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, overtime is x2 on Sunday (standard x1.5 all other days), most management is easily approachable, PTO is ok, but could be better. Company is very safety focused in a way I have never seen before (all companies pay lip service to safety, few are as dedicated as P&G). For a manufacturing plant it is very clean and quiet (relatively speaking).

    Cons

    Insurance is not the best, high copays. Some animosity between shifts. Forced overtime is common, though they are working to avoid it. Work/life balance can be difficult as you aren't sure when overtime might hit. The CEO makes more in a day than I do in a year (I get that this is standard, but it's irksome)

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

    Pros

    Benefits received from day one.

    Cons

    Extremely racist. If you do not know someone that already works there, you're screwed. Your benefits are given to you from day one, but are not allowed to use a sick day the first SIX MONTHS! Please don't waste your time in Iowa City. The pay is not worth your misery.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with employees & know what is going on.

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

    Pros

    Great health benefits and profit sharing.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Work overtime everyday. Rotating shifts. Do not know if working weekend until Friday afternoon. Impossible to plan anything unless you use vacation time to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. 25% overtime is unacceptable. Follow through on your promises of a better work / life balance.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good perks, decent pay

    Unless you are hired as a manager it is next to impossible to move into a management position, even if you have a degree.

    Pros

    Hourly wage, dividend box, great work environment, build capabilities, benefits, you have say on whats going on. You own pieces of equipment. Atmosphere,

    Cons

    Rotating shifts, line technician do manger response abilities, work load, always rolling out new ways to do old things. High initiave level, stress, micro managed, lots of OT, lots of red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Take the stress off the employees, running things to lean, stop changing things every 6 months, let operators run the line.
