    Pros

    P&G invests heavily in training and development of it's employees, in there you will learn a lot. The culture is very inclusive and they seek to develop everyone to their fullest potential.

    Cons

    The company is very well consolidated, so growth can be slow. If you are patient and continuously deliver strong results you will get there.

    Advice to Management

    Management should find ways to develop high potential employees that are eager to grow fast in the company in order to retain them and avoid the loss of great talent.

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

    Pros

    Onsite gym although you have to pay for it.
    Team parties at night and drinks but only if your team does this.
    At least you can spot when people are faking their love of the company as they literally go way overboard it's so obvious.
    The only nice environments are the plants and northern offices as people are still down to earth in those environments and normal without egos and politics.
    There are pockets of good people but these are becoming fewer as most leave quickly to avoid being crushed by politics.
    The only happy people are those in R&D as they get budgets although are not producing enough innovation which is actually affecting business as the business focuses on them they feel valued.

    Cons

    No work life balance.
    No working from home.
    The build from within model doesn't really work - what actually happens is that people get moved when told to and interns just get hired to fill jobs as they are cheaper. You have to be political to survive despite people being "nice" on the surface.
    You do not get to do things that interest you - you get made to be your bosses' yes man or grunt worker and just do endless piles of data or presentations or systems work. You are not allowed to say anything if you have an answer for something as “the leaders” know best.
    The politics within my team was so high and others report it to in other areas there is so much infighting and lots of people just crack from the made up pressure by seniors not giving people autonomy but they cover this up by all partying together and pretending to be "friends".
    The business is going downhill fast and it shows as they have very few brands left and the office is so dated and motivation is so low among junior staff especially. Pay is also being kept down year after year with more and more commitment expected. People are leaving and it is meaning P&G is piling more and more onto an endless cart of revolving door interns despite marketing themselves as a build and promote from within company and all this and that responsibility from day one it does not really exist. The look on the poor interns faces when they realize they have sold themselves for no real job at the end of it is so sad as lots of them are great but will never be kept as P&G does not want to pay full time staff.
    If you want to actually achieve something then don't come here as P&G no longer offers much responsibility as its in lock down to try and keep its head above water.
    You cannot afford the products and are never given any freebies sometimes you even forget you make any products at all! Times are so hard they clearly can't afford to even give you a bottle of shampoo or a laundry tablet or two.
    Lots of people have left in my team already this year and have rediscovered their worth outside of P&G as talent is not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the controlling culture of management and make people valued not judged all the time politically. Enable people to enjoy their work and do things that matter. It would be nice to have some genuine diversity in the ranks to not just as poster children.
