    Work Life balance, great reputation company / Resume builder

    Salary is lower than competition and as a packaging science major you come into P&G far below those coming in with an engineering degree.

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

    Pros

    P&G has a history of being a consumer and employee focused company, but alas it does not feel that way in the culture today. There is hope with the new CEO David Taylor, that he can turn the bleeding around and we shall have to wait and see.

    Cons

    Location, location, location, is my biggest beef. You have to live in Cincinnati if you want a career in R&D.

    Advice to Management

    focus on your employees more than your own career or wall street.

    Hourly wage, dividend box, great work environment, build capabilities, benefits, you have say on whats going on. You own pieces of equipment. Atmosphere,

    Cons

    Rotating shifts, line technician do manger response abilities, work load, always rolling out new ways to do old things. High initiave level, stress, micro managed, lots of OT, lots of red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Take the stress off the employees, running things to lean, stop changing things every 6 months, let operators run the line.

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

    Pros

    P&G is going through some changes and is trying to get smaller and more efficient. The company as a whole has a great culture outside of Product Supply Chain. The work is challenging.

    Cons

    Product Supply, and specifically in Site Integrated Planning role, there is a lot of turn over due to the level of responsibility, stress, and overall work load. Management has repeatedly blocked promotions to prevent losing high performers while allowing lesser performing planners the freedom to move on.

    Advice to Management

    Promotion to management is back logged with others who were promised management roles regardless of performance. The company is getting smaller but continues behaving in a silo'd manner.

    Pros

    Strong brands and a big company feel. Lots of opportunity to own your role and exposure to great talent. Stability and good work life balance

    Cons

    Leadership risk taking and decision making is not there. Folks get promoted by talking big versus true merit, which is discouraging to those who work hard and do the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within had its time and place-figure out the metrics to reward the right behavior.

    Pros

    Good benefits and Profit Sharing. Many positions offer flexibility to work from home on a consistent basis.

    Cons

    Good place to work, but not necessarily have a life-long career. Advancements and pay raises are very hard to come by. Difficult to move from one area of the company to another.

    Pros

    The reputation of the company is great. The company attracts top talent and people are generally nice and fun to work with.

    Cons

    The company only recruits people out of school, so everyone drinks the cool-aid and thinks it is the very best and only place where they could ever work. Since they have no other experiences, the company is largely able to take advantage of people who are afraid of alternatives.

    Pros

    The work environment is nice. There is a ton of flexibility to allow for vacation and time off where needed. Benefits are super as well.

    Cons

    Long, rough shifts. Often having to worry 15-23 days straight. Undervalued and undercompensated in an environment that values pushing product out the door.
