Overall Reviews at Procter & Gamble
Fantastic company.lots of opperunity to grow learn and be challenged.
Worked there for 30 years...Had many opportunities to learn and work with people from all over the world.. We had great support and worked in a team environment that was diversified and professional.
ProsBusy environment. Fast pace and challenging.
ConsI would of never left the company but had to go due to outsorcing and downsizing.
Working at P&G has been a complicated experience. Onboarding was not sufficient and managers expect new employees to hit the ground running after first 30 days in new role. You’re provided little to no training or coaching and upper management expect new hires to all perform the same at the same pace and speed. Completely biased and surely not a good company for single parents.
ConsNot good work life balance.
Overall good company
Company is well anchored on it's values and people. I feel that the company is moving towards the right direction but as always, will always have room for improvements.
Great learning experience, not so great culture
I had a manager who got frustrated when I was stuck, so I might have been unlucky. However, other employees were very helpful. All the work is VERY structured and fixed, and I prefer flexibility and creativity. Out of that, I had access to very knowledgeable people and an amazing company's history.
Lost its way
P&G has put too much focus on pleasing the fringe elements of society and placating to political correctness and in doing so have lost focus on creating innovative products that are valuable to consumers.
Great company if you want to live in the midwest. Competitive place, which makes you better, a great place to then jump off and get another job.
Great company if you want to live in the midwest. Competitive place, which makes you better, a great place to then jump off and get another job. Stable industry and great benefits
It was a job. It paid the bills at the time. Promotions go to unqualified peeps.
About what you would expect working in a warehouse. Supervisors and managers are mostly idiots, promoting their favorites, usually people with zero management experience and NO BS degree in management. I got passed over for promotion for 5 years WITH a degree and 10 yrs experience, while praised as the most knowledgeable person in the whse. Just idiocy stacked upon idiocy.
Prosyou get paid every couple weeks
ConsYou're forced to work 6 days a week, 6 months out of 12. No life.
Good people; good place to learn & develop skills
In what otherr legitimate enterprise could a high school grad work for twenty years and retire at 55 with almost a million dollars in his IRA? It's a great place to learn about business and how to get along with people.
ProsPaid for my classes in I.T. and business admin at Mt. St. Joseph U., plus training by suppliers like HP and software companies. I got to travel to California, Florida, and Vancouver to attend conventions, and their retirement plan is the best.
ConsEven though you grow in skills and knowledge, if yiu become too good at what you do, it may be hard to advance because they don't want to have to replace you.
The thing about working better is that you're just another employee that can fall by the wayside. Nobody cares about work home balance and it's very apparent.
Great place to work
Great place to work. Challenging, fast paced, great people, and ultimately rewarding. Very systematic, with clear roles and responsibilities. Great products, with the ability to grow in multiple locations.
