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

    Pros

    Grow from within organization. Excellent people and high investment to develop people over time. Everyone knows everyone else and you tend to run into the same people again and again - so minimal bad politics.

    Cons

    Somewhat insular. New ideas take a very long time to get in, but once they do, they get driven very well.

    Pros

    Great company for all the usual reasons.

    Cons

    Cons only if you work in R&D. Underappreciated, underpaid. Less benefits/amenities than the commercial side, constant undermining from the business teams. Your managers are generally uninspired, nice people, who are doing their job but have no delusions of grandeur or visions of greatness.
    Plus if youre in R&D your pay sucks compared to the rest of the company, and your promotion timelines suck as well so don't bother dreaming of a long term career.

    Advice to Management

    It's silly to pay Scientists so much more when Researchers come from the same schools, usually having studied for 4 years or 5 when scientists studied in that school for maybe 1 year. Some band 1s and 2s can pull their weight but the rest of them have no real reason to be treated better.

    People aren't stupid and you are no longer a competetive employer. Wake up before it's too late.
