    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture for women. Many women in leadership and company intentionally focusing on diversity. Company truly works to follow purpose, values & principled. Not just lip service.

    Cons

    Long hours. Can be tough work life balance. Everyone is used to being the best and are competitive so we all end up working a lot!

    Advice to Management

    People who work at P&G aren't our consumers. We are a similar type of people and people who buy our products don't necessarily value the same things we do. We need products for the people. Also, we need to win in eCommerce. We say that a lot, but don't know what it looks like yet I'd love to see more young people in particular on the eConmerce team. Older upper management can be out of touch with millennial consumers.

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunitues. Pay is good compared to many companies. Great if you can get in straight out of college.

    Cons

    Different attitude toward employees from acquired company. There is definitely a P&G way, which sometimes makes its employees feel superior to acquired employees.

    Advice to Management

    You lose lots of talent and experience by the treatment of employees of acquired companies.

    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.
