    Pros

    Good name to have on your resume.
    Not a terrible place to work if you just want to run out the clock until retirement.

    Cons

    The advancement opportunities are so bad that half the organization is only promoted one time. Many low performers allowed to hang around forever, clogging up the talent pipeline. Company still desperately clinging to past glory.

    Advice to Management

    Cap career tenure at 20 or 25 years. The intellectual calcification of senior staff in all functions is a major drag on growth and morale.

    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.
