    Pros

    The company trusts you and gives you real work to tackle. You get the freedom to look at it in your own way and really improve things. The work is always changing and the company with it. Great culture and they treat you like a human.

    Cons

    Some concern among more senior people regarding progression. Not always fair in terms of promotion.

    Advice to Management

    I think you should have a fairer, more transparent benefits package with promotions being based purely on performance and not popularity among managers.

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of ownership with projects from the start. Management is very flexible with working from home and working hours. Great benefits, including on-site staff shop and highly subsidised sports clubs e.g. yoga, football, squash, climbing. Lots of opportunities to travel. Opportunities to transfer abroad and clear career path.

    Cons

    With the company headquarters in Boston you do feel a bit left out. The onboarding process leaves a lot to be desired. Long hours and working weekends when travelling. Salary progression is unclear.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your onboarding process.
