Très bonne entreprise

Ils engagent principalement des jeunes diplômés universitaires, afin de leur donner un maximum de connaissances en interne. Chaque employé est très spécialisé, mais comme il y a beaucoup de changements dans l'organisation nous étendons rapidement nos connaissances. Les supérieurs sont bien formés au management d'employés et sont normalement bienveillants. Entreprise internationale, le travail est principalement sur l'élaboration de stratégies.

Pros

Travail flexible (télétravail, temps partiel), Fitness, plusieurs points d'alimentation, bancomat, coiffeur...

Cons

LPP au minimum

Great school of marketing

Great, but old school marketing company. Great people. needs to dramatically invest in digital skills. The policy of having offices outside of town is a challenge to recruitment now.

Pros

international careers

Cons

job security right now

Amazing people, good compensation package, poor work-life balance

What makes the Company stand out - people. People in PG are amazing. This druves a fierce internal competition that naturally forces you to stay current, up to speec in your domain of activity. For a couple of years, PG is struggling to find its way within the new economical turmoil, the consumer patterns and shopping behaviors. Nlt an easy task under its HUGE business complexity, scale, and diversity. Such scale makes a highly process driven dynosaur, which is not all times agile enough. Always trying to be couple of steps ahead competition, sometimes forgets to focus on basics and puts lots of efforts into shiny blinkers without much effect into such a fast changing environment. Recently, the political level reached another peak, making any type of performance results disapear behind political curtains.

Pros

Salary, accelerated learning curve, daily complex situstions to solve, amazing people to compete and have fun

Cons

Politics, internal turmoil, non-existing HR, recent lack of real coaches/mentors

Experience à Procter

Beaucoup de travail mais des conditions exceptionnelles. Valorisation des salariés et des initiatives. Le système de changement d'assignement est un vrai plus, permettant aux employés d'évoluer constamment; d'apprendre et de se developper.

Pros

Conditions de travail

Cons

Restructurations fréquentes

Overload and stressful

Overall P&G is a great place to learn and to be disciplined, however after some years it kills you as the pressure never goes out. and unless you choose to stop the stress and reject it you can easily burn out.

Great company but lack of organisation

Great company to work for, really interesting and talented people, quickly assigned with interesting projects. Really good atmosphere. Lack of organisation in general.

Very demanding management but always very interesting and challenging.

High objectives to reach and a very exposed position leads by a management team with strong management knowledge and an impressive working experience. Procter and Gamble provide to every employee a unique place of work and the constant possibility to grow.

Pros

Free sport class and gym

Cons

long hours

Fast paced organization

This company is fast paced and can when the purpose is clear deliver gret results. It could do more with improved listening skills from managers and more external benchmarking

Pros

Many trainings easily available

Cons

Very Professional Corporate Company

P&G is an established company, with very structured processes. Whatever I have learned, I owe it to P&G, it's a very good school. It gives you responsibility from day one, which is really empowering. it gives you the opportunity to change your assignment every 2-3 years, which gives you a lot of experience. However, its culture has started to deteriorate. Although company culture & values are there, the management is not following them, and politics & networking is getting in front of people's performance, which I believe will bring the end of the company one day

Challenging, rewarding, and very international!

Spent two very intense years at P&G working on two assignments. I travelled, worked hard, and learned a lot! I was lucky enough to be in the Prestige Division, working on brands like Hugo Boss and Gucci.

Pros

Very international and a university for learning marketing and sales!

Cons

Bureaucratic and slow to make decisions.

Overall great company

P&G is a great company for future leaders, with strong culture and well organized operations. It's best in class MBA on the job. There're a lot of opportunities to learn and develop and thanks to the strict hiring selection, you almost always work with outstanding people. Work/life balance though might be tough to find, a job can easily require lots of extra working hours.

Not what it used to be

P&G used to be a great company of choice, but a decade of restructuring have left morale in pieces. The main, if not only, concern of senior management remains to cut cost and increase short-term profit at all cost. Mid and lower management is treated increasingly like an unwelcome expense to be eliminated.

Great place to gain international experience

A lot of my work involved conducting research on different potential business partners within the East Asian market. I also had the opportunity to gain insight on different types of agreements.

Grande déception

Je n'ai pas du tout aimé travailler chez PG, les gens sont égocentriques, l'ambiance est dans le style "requin" je t'ecrase pour mieux monter. C'était la pire experience de ma carrière.

Pros

salaire, diversité

Cons

mauvaise ambiance, équipe égocentrique et égoiste, malpoli

Un environnement de bureaux open space

J'ai aimé la collaboration avec mes collègues. Pour mon contexte, je n'avais pas de possibilité de développement. Ce qui n'était pas évident dans ce milieu était d'être le super technicien pour le 5 % du temps de travail et le reste était des taches les plus basiques. Autres difficultés : Jamais fini, jamais assez... Ses remarques ne concernent pas l'entreprise Jones Lang LaSalle en particulier. De l'intérieur l'entreprise m'a toujours surpris en bien. La difficulté était globalement le site et le contexte où je travaillais.

Pros

L'entreprise était proche de chez moi.

Cons

Aucune estime personnel.
