    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You are very well-compensated at P&G. Even administrators retire with seven-figure 401ks. The profit-sharing program is extremely lucrative.

    Cons

    Once you're coded 'sales' or 'marketing' there is very little flexibility to do anything, but what upper management feels you should be doing.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees an opportunity to explore other functions within the company. It might help you retain more of your younger, diverse sales force.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Awesome profit sharing benefits, surrounded by really bright people, great variety of roles within you get to learn from different areas and be part of teams doing awesome things

    Cons

    If you're in North America it is really, really, really hard to get promoted. Many more mid-level managers than needed is never a good thing if you want to progress professionally. Not impossible, just really, really, really difficult. Also too much weight given to network, sponsors (if you're lucky to have powerfull ones) and what school you went to (and what key leaders went to that same school) make the process a bit unfair.

    Advice to Management

    We need to people with hard skills at the top, not just the flashy, traditional "go-getters". Diversity in thinking is more important than in appearance, that is the only way the Company will continue leading into the future in a more diverse world.

    I worked at Procter & Gamble as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great leadership in the engineering department. They truly emphasize the "Promote from Within" culture and a lot of the senior management were promoted from the company

    Cons

    Not global pay. I was offered a local pay in China which was significantly lower that in the U.S. So I declined the offer

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

    Pros

    Large successful company who gives back to the community. Great for flexible work arrangements. Benefits are good with ample amount of vacation days.

    Cons

    Little fish in BIG pond. Hard to get recognized for good work completed. Hard to get promoted on a less than full time schedule that P&G itself promotes.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize people even for small accomplishments.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on Tier 1 brands, access to resources, fantastic training, talented peers.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical, sometimes too process driven, focused on near term gains, with minimal regard to long term brand impacts (2 - 3 year management rotations)

    Advice to Management

    It's not enough to hired the most talented folks from out of school, there has to be a plan to help these individuals grow, a post hire checkpoint on performance.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting projects, promote-from-within culture. Move roles every two years, never have the chance to become complacent. Everyone is valued. P&G puts a lot of time and energy into training, mentorship, networking.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance if your goal is promotion and high ratings. Company is massive and bogged down with intense processes in order to ensure everything is always perfect.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, leadership training and development, flexibility with career path and assignments

    Cons

    Locations are limited, company feels so large that making large impacts can be difficult, decisions from leadership are slow and often change

    Advice to Management

    Open more offices in different areas of country. It is not always easy to recruit people who are willing to live in Cincinnati the rest of their career. Also consider changing the promote from within principle to open up opportunities for experienced employees. Plants do not have the work/ life balance benefits especially flex schedules and can deter some young managers from staying at P&G.

  8. "Stable, safe, with some risks, which take too long for 20 something year olds"

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

    Pros

    The People, the experience, the education, the training, career advancement, life-work balance (for the most part), and safe retirement.

    Cons

    Pace of innovation is slow. Takes too long to get promoted or recognized. Must be part of the 'club' with senior management to follow that track.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with management staff in their 20's who are on the front line. Don't count on mid-level managers to get the real picture as they just want to protect their position.

    Pros

    The ability to move across businesses and teams allows you to have a breadth of experiences.

    Cons

    There has been a tremendous amount of organizational change in the past few years, driving too much internal focus and strain. This has led to the loss of many experienced managers.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that there is a balance of cost structure improvement and experienced talent retention.

    Pros

    Great work/ life balance for some people, most people are hard working and are competent. The benefits are still ok compared to most.

    Cons

    Upper Management is out of touch. Benefits are going down rapidly and they are not remaining competitive. Do more with Less is the mantra here right now.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rolling your S#$% down hill, we are building catapults and getting ready to swing it back up, oh and it will splatter when it hits you.
