    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Staff benefits are good
    2. Work flexibility (only if line manager allows)
    3. Young co-workers at the same level
    4. Plenty of training for career and personal building
    5. Job rotation
    6. Good for people still early in their career

    Cons

    1. Flexibility hindered by some line managers due to micro-management
    2. Line managers and employees sometimes have no idea what they are doing in their role due to excessive job rotation
    3. No mastery in job, again due to excessive job rotation
    4. Systems and data are very lagging behind
    5. Too dependent on spreadsheets when systems are available
    6. Implementation of projects are just a stepping stone for others due to job appraisal. Once project completed despite having alot of teething issues, individual does not take ownership of it and still gain recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Look to utilise experienced hires who are not “brain-wash” yet. They can offer much more.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits. Great visibility and autonomy given to Brand Management.

    Cons

    Politics over rationales and judgemental culture. They fire a lot of people on a quarterly basis just for the sake. Lack of coaching - expect you to "navigate yourself" on the first job.

    Advice to Management

    Certain race is dominating the management in APAC due to favouritism by the President and their culture is forced upon everyone else. Keep up the wonderful democracy.

    Nice addition to resume, nice office, MNC

    I worked at Procter & Gamble (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Basically, if you are a contractor you don't get any rights and you ain't allowed to speak casually. Read on to find out.

    Cons

    There's a hierarchy in their company. They hire contractors and contractors are being DISCRIMINATED in their casually.
    They discriminate contractors for not smiling during the onboarding sessions, not looking into the presenter's eyes when the presenters are presenting. They eventually made the contractor's HR to force the contractor to write a resignation letter. Which in my opinion I felt so unjust for this contractor as it is no longer a job-related issue but personal attack. The person has not even been allowed to show her potential and was told to leave during her onboarding. NASTY.

    Advice to Management

    Not really to the management but contractors that are going to this company. Here are a few people if anyone was about to enter the company and reading this post. A pre-warning to those out there that's about to enter the office. Consolidated from the information given that arises to this matter.

    1) The contractor casually asked this lady how she's finding her work and when the contractor responded back the same as how she said, she immediately complained (it is believed that this person is one of the causes of this because the contractor spoke to her casually and she spread it to the management?)
    2) the contractor did not STARE at her eyes while the trainer was presenting (LEL low key gangster)
    3) This lady said the contractor did not smile and prob not interested/ passionate about it (didn't know this girl had x-rated eyes to see the brain of a person)

    Yeah, you realized that is all females that complained. Didn't know P&G staff actually discriminate people. so much for their value of "non-discriminate policy". But true, the contractor not part of their elites policy/system, so maybe that's why?
