    Too big, too slow, takes a while to effect change.
    Leaders stay on in roles because of tenure, not performance.

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

    Pros

    Amazing culture, colleagues are genuine and bosses generally care for you well being. Benefits are amazing too, salary increment is one if not the best in the industry. Flexibility in working hours is the greatest takeaway. Very steep learning curve and HR provides very good training.

    Cons

    Work load and deadlines are crazy, even though we have flexi hours we seem to work very long hours - perhaps thats the reason why we need flexi hours. Sometimes management sits on the ideas for too long, keep thinking about them not activating.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps more bias to action and not wait for perfection in analysts before launching anything.

    Pros

    Good learning opportunity especially in marketing- offers structured trainings to absorb the knowledge. Early responsibilities are given to you in terms of business handled. Good benefits as compared to similar companies in the sector.

    Cons

    Outdated marketing practices and company's internal focus doesn't leave much to innovate.
    The management takes ages to take decisions and people keep moving in cycles doing and redoing the same stuff a million times.

    Advice to Management

    Employees also have a personal life and should not be expected to work round the clock!

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

    Pros

    Nice people. A lot have plenty of experience. Very approachable.

    Cons

    Perks suck, but are better if you are married or have kids. No free food. *Free coffee* is sub par. Even Nescafe Gold would be better.
    In a way if you're not married, the perks dont really matter to you. There are some claimable expenses but the amounts are really low.
    At the lower levels churn and burnout is real. Some managers are great, some arent, so it gets demoralising.
    As a Researcher, they hire graduates to do diploma-level work (and overpay by those standards true) but expect Scientist level results (and massively underpay by those standards)

    Advice to Management

    Its silly to hire talent and then underpay them. They will just leave because they know they can do better.
