    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall great company but a successful career completely relies on your ability to navigate a complex and brutal political climate. Work life balance is better than most companies. Training and development can be world class in most functions. They encourage you to broaden your experience with roles in multiple different disciplines and functions. Office environment is up to date and welcoming. Compensation for management level employees is competitive. Good overall retirement and benefits package. Great people and highly talented and competitive workforce.

    Cons

    Corporate restructuring continues....be careful what business unit you work in. If you are an administrative & technical (A&T) hire count on not getting promoted more than one time your entire career. There is a corporate glass ceiling that prevents non-management employees from getting the opportunity to compete for management level roles. Even with 10+ years internal experience and being top rated they will choose to hire new college graduates at management level before promoting from within. These are not isolated issues...they happen frequently and are very highly known by leadership, but the issue is ignored and top talent from non management levels leave each year.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach....promote from within and get rid of the glass ceiling between non-management and management roles. If you come into the company at non-management my advice is put 5-7 years in, get developed and trained, then hit the job market and find out what your true market value is....you won’t be disappointed.
