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

    Pros

    Intelligent co-workers. Work from home opportunities. Plenty of internal training opportunities for self improvement. Global reach. Very affordable cost of living in the greater Cincinnati area.

    Cons

    Slow burn. Agility is not our core competency, so unfortunately our norm is to take any new idea or proposed change of action and make it a long drawn out process fraught with seemingly endless discussion. End result being the output is too late.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the momentum to create a 21st century workforce.

    Pros

    The people you get to work with

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility truly depends on your original hired in classification

    Advice to Management

    STOP having all your new recent hired college kids being given the rank of Band 1 manager. Use your A&T population to also promote from. The list of stipulations for promotion of an A&T are ridiculous.

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

    Pros

    The Company's "Purpose, Values and Principles" are lived and breathed by employees around the world. At least at the Corporate level, one never needs worry if the Company will do the right thing. They will.

    Cons

    Two areas: the Company is generally risk averse... and a wonder if too many colleagues are getting too complacent or apathetic with their work... not pulling their end of the work-employee contract.

    Pros

    I enjoy working with the people.

    Cons

    The management at the SPS is very siloed from the A&Ts. Does not feel like a connected group.

    Advice to Management

    P&G Needs to STOP hiring managers from the outside and learn to promote within more. Too many managers coming off the street and ruining peoples career paths because they just do not have any skills to manage people. It is not good for moral.
