    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professionally, these were my formative years. Training mostly focused on soft skills and leadership, but ultimately set me up for my career after P&G. You get to work with so many strong/driven/smart people, that outside the training programme, the on the job experience and learning is incredible. I'm glad I worked there, but also glad I left.

    Cons

    For career progression, travel and role rotation/diversity is mandatory. If you don't/can't do that, then you won't progress past a certain point. Not a criticism, P&G is global, so I think it's important to have some element of this. It just can limit career progression for some. If you want to specialise in a technical or engineering career, again you will quickly hit a glass ceiling. P&G is a predominantly Marketing driven company, and Product Supply is a necessary inconvenience, to maintain competitive advantage through speed to market. PS is mostly focused on cost savings, rather than true (costly) innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Probably above my pay grade this question! If Peltz is anywhere close to the mark, it seems that the innovation and agility still remains a challenge for P&G. They are so big and corporate, and weighed down by process, they have forgotten how to think and act like a small company or start up. It was a challenge when I was there, and seemingly still is.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good career opportunities, really help you develop your leadership skills. No chance you'll get bored, always a challenge.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance in some roles. Sometimes hard to get support and mentorship.

    Advice to Management

    More open culture, more attention to work life balance instead of taking advantage of individuals' commitment, at all levels.

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

    Pros

    Long history of loyalty, strong brand development and growth. Great benefits and look after employees well. Previously a good pension scheme.

    Cons

    Such slow decision making processes, control by a small hierarchy at local level. Poor work life balance as you progress in seniority and small sites are 'political', leaders drive personal agendas versus company interests.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the talent and investment needed to compete in 5-10yrs time, not 10 yrs ago.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong basis for wanting you to do well and succeed, the help is there if you want it!

    Cons

    Very contradicting goals set for each half of the year, for 6 months you are to achieve service levels by any means given, and penalised for it the other 6 months as you spent too much

    Advice to Management

    Reward each team fairly for there work, not your favourites
