    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and a relaxed working environment that embraces diversity and inclusion. Frequent training and up-skilling of employees and the option to work abroad during your career.

    Cons

    Head office (south) is located in Weybridge which is not ideal for everyone as many prefer to live in London (especially early on in their careers).

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Flexibility, Work/Life Balance - Salary & Benefits - Training & Personal Development - Room to grow within the company - Exposure to multi-disciplines - Working with diverse, highly skilled people - Travel - Responsibility

    Cons

    I often felt that those who blew their own trumpet, and shouted the loudest, got rewarded with higher pay increases and job promotions. And those who did very good work, but quietly delivered outstanding results, often got overlooked. I expect though that this could be said in any large company.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Accounting qualifications are funded by the company, if you're competitive and willing to put in the work then you can expect rewards and promotions

    Cons

    The pay is not the best, it is competitive and some people are not given the same opportunities as others so are unfairly held back

    Advice to Management

    Reward and recognise staff for their hard work better

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice perks including free coffee, tea, fruits, and cakes. Steady Salary growth Safe work environment Agile team space Constant professional Growth Diverse teams

    Cons

    I felt a little old style of management in Senior Management behaviour, where women have to FIGHT to get there. Talent retention on the first level is quite low, so people change all the time

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    A lot of variety in roles. Always supported to challenge yourself and develop new skills.

    Cons

    Sometimes the size of the company can make it hard but then this does also provide opportunities that a small company couldn’t provide

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Nice offices and opportunity to work on global projects - Good company to have on the CV - If you are able to make a move out of GBS into the MDO and other areas, you will likely progress to a senior manager level quickly and have sponsors to help you.

    Cons

    Highly cliquey organisation. If you are "in" with the right crowd, they will promote and you get your pick of the roles. If not, then forgot any kind of promotions or roles. Far too much time spent on "exposure" to senior management talking about what you've (allegedly) done. If you are able to succeed in this environment, you will be well rewarded for it.
