    Pros

    They used to mentor, pay for education at top business schools, you get the P&G pedigree, work hours are not long, contractors do most of the heavy lifting, you are mainly there to provide leadership, not do grunt work

    Cons

    After assistant brand manager, it is mainly up or out. Many postings are to remote corners of the world, which may require either years long parting from the family or your spouse to give up his or her career. Lately with the shedding of the brands, its like layoffs all the time, without the actual layoffs occurring at P&G, those are taken care of by those purchasing the brands.

    Advice to Management

    No one at P&G is ever going to read this, so what is there to say.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time

    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.
