    I worked at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    - FANTASTIC training and educational materials to build skills. - VERY caring and inspiring senior leadership team. - Thought-leader in FMCG industry. Well respected by customers. - Friendly culture. - Free product samples.

    Cons

    - Internally focused. The answer to every question is P&G is the greatest (it is a sales/marketing company after all). - Poor work-life balance. P&G teams are generally understaffed. Long days and working on weekends is common, especially to excel in a role. - Internally competitive. Promote-from-within structure offers great rewards but encourages competition among lower ranks. - Overly image-focused culture. The upside is P&G is very open about encouraging its employees to make themselves look good and get recognition. - Large, political bureaucracy. There is a unique, sometimes overly complex P&G process or method for almost everything.

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

    Pros

    - company is supportive of employee’s personal achievements - work from home - product freebies - young and proactive colleagues - supports work-life balance - internal promotion - job rotation - career growth opportunities - career development training and process improvements - results-oriented - international assignments - stocks/shares for employees - the only company where I am proud to be a part of

    Cons

    - management has a lot of things that want to improve but with less FTE - employees are too competitive to get the promotion which led to recognition-hungry attitude - too much politics in performance rating. If the managers do not know you, prepare to have a low rating even if you exceed in delivering results - disappointing management that has favoritism - high target/unachievable profit plans from the top where the low-ranking employees suffer

    I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful flexibility - hot desking and working from home is the norm. There is a lot of trust from management to get your work done in the hours that work for you. Fast paced environment and interesting issues. Young workplace so fresh ideas are valued - it's not uncommon to see people in their late 20s or early 30s in senior roles. Very global organisation and international transfers are relatively easy to arrange.

    Cons

    Culture where people routinely work after hours and logging on after you get home is the norm. Much work is driven out of regional hubs so subsidiary markets have little control over their work. Decision-making requires input many stakeholders and delays are frequent, which can be frustrating. Change is slow. There is not a lot of product innovation.
