    I worked at Procter & Gamble (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great total compensation and benefits, great and challenging work!

    Cons

    Majority of hires are entry level. The hiring of people with experience is rare and typically not very successful.

    Advice to Management

    There is great talent outside of the Company that should be brought in and there is exceptional talent inside the Company that is being wasted or are leaving for other companies where they are very successful.

    Pros

    Procter provides a Tremendous learning and growth environment. You are a urrounded by top talent/high achievers so you find that you're constantly "elevating your game"

    Cons

    The above dynamic is a double-edged sword" -- outstanding people are made to feel "average". Virtually everyone who leaves rediscovers their relative worth outside of P&G

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on leveraging people's natural strengths over trying to develop their weaknesses.

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

    Pros

    I just happen to have great management. I am recognized for my contributions. I am challenged and I have fun doing what I do.

    Cons

    Whenever I had bad management in the past, they did eventually move on. P&G is a big company that is still trying to find out how to grow and succeed.

    Advice to Management

    I can't help management because I do not understand the issues and what can be done at the corporate level. I guess they are getting paid pretty good for trying to get it right.

    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.

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

    Pros

    The people are just awesome, down to earth and mostly positive. Excellent manager development. Great wages for the Midwest and good profit sharing.

    Cons

    Moving up in the company is very slow, with promotions coming every 7-10 years. With the stock price not moving, funding is tight and the only growth is at the bottom line from cost cutting, reducing innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Let the great hires you make run the show and make decisions with the long term in mind, not for momentary stock price rewards. Lean forward with young, talented employees otherwise they'll continue to stay a few years and than find work where they can get promoted quicker.
