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

    Pros

    You get to do panels to test your own product and you get coupons for the products
    You are not held accountable for your work nor being on time for meetings.
    Benefits are not bad

    Cons

    P&G has lost focus on results. Too much let’s be friends, everyone can be on their cell phone texting etc. and their work comes last. Mr. Procter and Mr. Gamble I am sure are rolling in their graves.
    If you are result driven and do not want to hang around the water cooler talking for hours to your co-workers, this company is not for you. If you like to play the game and do not care about true results you will go far in this company.
    Everyone gets rated however, most of the people doing the rating are barely out of college and has never been a manager. How can anyone rate another person whom they do not manage nor truly work with??? Too much power is being given to these young, non-experienced adults.
    P&G pays okay however, keep in mind there are many other companies that will pay more for your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on results!! P&G used to be an amazing company admired by all. Now P&G is being laughed at and businesses are shaking their heads.
    Create a policy that employees need to leave their phones at their desk, in their locker turned off until breaks or lunch. People hanging on their phones, walking out of a meeting to answer a personal call or phone alerts going off all day is extremely distracting. People are not engaged in meetings anymore because their head is down playing with their cell phone. If people have all this time to play on their phone then consolidate the roles. Get rid of the cell phone players and keep the people whom have results.
    Make managers hold people accountable for their work. Managers do not need to be a “friend” they need to be a coach, mentor and hold people accountable when they are not doing their work.
    The people that work hard, give results acknowledge them. Stop focusing on grammar, spelling, did not say this politically correct and get back to the real work. If a manager has nothing better to do than focus on this type of stuff, they do not have enough work.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and decent benefits. The pay system has been restructured and is barely competitive with Mars, now.

    Cons

    Work schedule is difficult with 12 hour day shifts and night shifts in same week. Middle management is brutal. Most department level managers are going nowhere so they float, laterally, from one department to another. This allows them to destroy the morale of most of their subordinates in multiple departments. Upper management lacks the stones to put them in their place. Don't want to rock the boat!

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and move some of your problem managers out! You already know who they are, so step up. The problem managers have no issues with fabricating violations to get rid of the techs that they don't want. Let's not forget the suck up techs that yes sir, no sir their way into leadership positions at the demise of fellow techs. The Albany plant has the worst morale of any paper plant in the US.

    Pros

    P&G has great people, strong corporate values, and an empowering culture. Every position in the company has a strong connection to the business and can make direct impact to business results.

    Cons

    Has been in an extended period of contraction, stagnant growth, and major cost cutting. There is a constant push to deliver more work with fewer resources. The speed and effort required to get decisions made is still a challenge.
