    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, Staff shop saves you large amount over year. Very clean safe place to work. Working hours are better than most very rarely have to work weekends.

    Cons

    Treated like a number on shop floor. Have to be flexible and change shift patterns at very short notice to suit "Business needs" so cannot plan ahead to fit life around off duty.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to advice from workers on shop floor rather than newly qualified grad student(TSG)

    If you like stability and visibility into your career, P&G is a good place to work for. They love processes, which can give you stability while you learn the job.

    Cons

    Everyone is placed in a box, so only certain career moves are possible, and its difficult to explore a function different to the one you started in.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    There are less pros by the day at this once great but now declining company...
    Some good people but they are becoming fewer by the day... The ones who are good are great though but sad that there are less of them.

    Cons

    Managers are allowed to get away with politics and bullying just because of their status.
    There is no focus on growth for shareholders and doing the right thing doesn't really exist for diversity as hardly any women at the top nor anyone with disabilities or colour.
    Not open to ideas from interns or anyone else for that matter it is really struggling to compete in the new digital instant world.
    Most of the good people who get bought during old aquisitions have left and current leaver rates are soaring.
    Pay is poor for the time you are supposed to give and junior staff only contribute toward seniors bonuses.
    Never get any free products.
    Politics is through the roof and affects any productivity and the endless amounts of meetings.
    P&G is out of its depth in so many new areas that rivals and startups have sorted e.g. digital as it has trained everyone from within and doesn't look for outside hires.
    Hardly hiring then suddenly goes on a hiring spree.

    Advice to Management

    Actually, encourage a culture that values what you say you value and don't be afraid to buy talent when you need it as times have changed you are missing out on many great millennials just because they didn't intern with you...

    Pros

    Extra-curricular Activities. Opportunities for career progression.
