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

    Pros

    The company has good benefits and offers plenty of flexible work arrangements. Wok/Life balance is a priority in most areas of the company. Provides many opportunities for collaboration amongst teams and across functions. Many opportunities to explore different career paths without having to start over in a new company. Good tuition reimbursement program and other benefits.

    Cons

    The "promote from within" concept only goes so far. If you are hired in as "non-management" plan to stay there as promotions out of "non management" and into "management" are few and far between. Promotion to management typically involves being open to relocating to very little pay increase.

    Pursuing additional education or certifications outside the company will not help with advancement. Company has many over qualified A&T's (non-management) with MBA's that want to get promoted and the company does not provide an open and encouraging path to make that happen that does not require moving.

    The pay scale bands leave many employees capping out after 7-10 years with very few opportunities to see continued salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to A&T's. Not everyone wants to stay at the same level for 30 years. If the company wants to "promote from within" this should be looked at across all levels not primarily focused on promoting managers. Look to promote employees first before bringing in outside talent.

    Review the pay scale and reward employees who seek additional education or certification. Employees should not be faced with "capping out" in their salary range and have to face reviews where no raise is given as cost of living and insurance costs go up.

    Stop the "political" way of saying things. Be transparent and open, say it how it is. Employees know when they are receiving a line of BS.

    Pros

    P&G provides a solid foundation for any career. With strong leaders, clear processes, principles and the best people, the experiences and learnings helps both fresh faces straight from school and experienced hires with best practices.

    Cons

    P&G has been in a period of transition and evolution for many years. Even as the business changes and the organization adapts, the management, principles and processes provides strong guidance to ensure the P&G culture persists.

    Advice to Management

    The fundamentals that made P&G a success are still foundationally valid. As long as the PVP continues to be the backbone.
