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

    Pros

    Every P&G lab employs technically excellent people. Work is very challenging but deadlines are relaxed. Excellent work/life balance with fantastic managers. Very people oriented.

    Huge access to all kinds of facilities. P&G is a big company and if you have it on your CV the you've "made" it.

    Cons

    Business plans are not generally shared and tended to be glossed over. When the businesses are not doing well it did not give us confidence that we could get out of the rut.

    Upper management have an old school way of thinking. Many have learnt their trade within the company and so are very insular with their thinking. This means that many projects are canned or delayed with very few making it to market.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries benchmark below industry. No prospect for promotion especially if you are not part of the inner circle. Promotions tend to go to the "yes"-persons rather than the capable. In all my years there I have seen so many highly talented introverted technical experts leave the company.

    Get the company back to growth - you're responsible start delivering.
