    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    Great organisation to be part of

    Cons

    Has stringent verticals and hence doesn't offer mix of rolls

    Advice to Management

    Offers great platform to learn and develop


  2. "Great company to learn but stagnation in growth @ European Level"

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

    Pros

    People - the people are good, respectfull and all with the same values
    Learning School - Fast learning track when you start, ability to do # jobs over a short period of time
    Standards - P&G known for having high standards/processes that are used as text book examples

    Cons

    Too slow in vertical growth - due to grow from within mechanism, you are sometimes in a train waiting for your time to come to get promoted (even when you are really good)
    Too bureaucratic sometimes - especially in Europe - need for more flat company policies

    Advice to Management

    Change the growth from within cycle - make competition harder for people in the company by hiring from the outside and as well by taking people out of the chain when they are underperforming (and not only when they have the pension age)

    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    An inspiring place to work. You will take important responsibility for a team, a process, or one work system from the day you join at P&G.

    Cons

    It's a result-driven company, with all pros and cons that come with it.

    Advice to Management

    Major focus on creating Shareholder Value may not have a great appeal to a vast majority of employees. The company should still communicate a broader meaning for its business.

    Pros

    Great set of people and values with stretching, interesting work.
    Always opportunities to grow role and find new assignments worldwide
    Great training opportunities internally with management bonuses linked to subordinate development

    Cons

    Nicely done but underlying rise or leave culture - difficult when so many good people about!
    Significant development requires a senior career sponsor and a high exposure role - easy to get lost in a forgotten corner of P&G's empire
    Always risk of being dealt out by corporate M&A actions
    Can be very inward looking with group think - tough to influence if the direction is set from high up - big on strategy low on tactics!

    Advice to Management

    Remember what made the company great - a people focus and giving consumers what they want, relentlessly

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The people, work life balance, average salary, multiple assignments over lifetime, good learning schools for moving to other companies, responsibility high from day one

    Cons

    Managerial Hierarchy which leads to slow pace of decision making of leadership, evaluation process, slow promotional growth based on cumbersome evaluation process!

    Advice to Management

    Shoots for the moon and you will reach the stars - make bold decisions rather then all rounded choices! Dare to fire people! Promote based on the capabilities of the people not in the system
