    Pros

    The people at P&G are smart, passionate and dedicated to their work. The company has best in class people management tools that are broadly utilized to foster great results. The pay is competitive as are there is a full suite of benefits e.g. full medical, employee stock ownership plan with a company match, retirement benefits, subsidized meals etc. The environment is positive and the company is grounded in principles and values that are enduring. If you want to build a world class career, to face real opportunities for growth and development and are ready to put in the hard work, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The global structure is no longer working as it is supposed to and this is impeding the business. There are layers of complexity in decision making, primarily driven by this structure, There have been attempts to change the structure unsuccessfully so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on investing in people, identifying and developing top talent and in creating an environment that fosters growth.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Learn a lot of skills, can make okay money once begin to move up

    Cons

    Managers expect a lot more from technicians with little pay. The site is very political. Depending on which site you work will determine the culture. Mine was not a good experience. The pride is very low

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to technicians, support them more instead of waiting for them to do something wrong fe a write up. Equal training for everyone

    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.
