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

    Pros

    Pay. Profit sharing now cut for new employees. Was a top 5 US company for retirement benefits now just average. Was the best place to work during my career starting 1982 till about 1997. Then culture changed. Sadly no longer like it was.

    Cons

    No longer working as a team between management and technicians. Management formed cliques. Narcissistic attitude of management, good olé boy network. No longer rotate roles to enhance everyone equally. Management has favorites no longer has true equality.

    Advice to Management

    Vote for Nelson Pelz. Huge cultural change needed. Change I don't feel can be accomplished. Maybe if you bring back some old retirees who remember how it once was run and inculcate new work ethic.

    Way to many managers getting paid to do nothing - too many chiefs not enough Indians ... not enough support on the floor

    Get on the floor and help your people... weed out the managers milking the clock

    Pros

    Large management responsibility (both people and equipment), substantial leadership growth opportunity, teamwork, fast paced

    Zero work-life balance, long hours, mediocre compensation, high stress

    Take a serious look at the structure of this role and the impact it has on young managers. There needs to be a change.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Nice, knowledgeable co-workers,

    Cons

    Favoritism is high, Management doesn't listen to new ideas, Company cost cuts make it difficult to do my job well. I am often on the road incredibly tired because the company won't pay for a hotel.
    Advancement was promised but seems to be a false statement that was made to get me on-board.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to take on big responsibility with a world-class company. The work was interesting and varied, and my suppliers were excellent. I enjoyed working externally in this role and being exposed to other world-class organizations. There also could be other good opportunities within P&G if you're willing to stick it out and end up working for and with the right people.

    Cons

    In the Supply Chain organization, roles and advancement is limited and doesn't always favor those that work well with others and are achievers. Culturally, this leads to people being in place for long periods of time and staking their claim in their little fiefdom. Along with this, the culture in Supply Chain in general was poor. I experienced a terrible manager that was also genuinely unpleasant on purpose in a personal way. I stuck it out for a year simply due to my family situation and keeping my bonus, but was exposed to what I consider the worst manager driving down what could've been a great experience.

    Advice to Management

    Reward people not only on length of service, but on merit. Don't allow poor personalities to destroy what should be a good culture. Reward people for being good collaborators.
