    I have been working at Procter & Gamble (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great work life balance
    - Awesome projects that touch peoples lives positively
    - Care about the team as people
    - Diversity and inclusion is the best of the FMCG's - disability is highly included
    - Great fun place to work
    - Everyone is committed to what they do right across the business

    Cons

    - Catering options are a bit limited particularly for breakfast options
    - Cafe closes at 4.30pm

    Advice to Management

    Keep the strong focus on diversity its great - am proud to work in such an inclusive multinational and one that sees all diversity including disability rather than one that focuses on one topic as a stand alone.

    Pros

    Extra-curricular Activities. Opportunities for career progression.

    Pros

    A lot of training, internal career opportunities, easy to change jobs across proficiencies

    Cons

    Very process driven and unflexible, promotions are based more on a waiting list (top x%) than actual performance

    Advice to Management

    Stop imposing travel bans every year. You might help the shareholder for the quarter but you are hurting your Business mid and long term.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    A lot of freedom to lead projectsand work with other teams, groups, sites and countries.
    Some great people to work with.
    Site is located in a good area.

    Cons

    Old school hierarchical elitism from the Oxbridge PhD management.
    Don’t invest in developing employees which are treated as disposable. Like it or leave.
    Demoralizingly slow to do anything, from project initiatives to people progression.
    A career system that encourages people to be publicity machines for their own careers instead of actually doing something constructive. Powerpoint experts who have forgotten any science, engineering or technology, but that’s OK they play the visibility game and get rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Value the staff who do good work, not the ones who spend their days shouting about it.
    Speed things up, take some risks in speed to market. The company was once great and could be again but just now it has lost its way.
