The company offers many benefits and perks such as pension, healthcare and shares. There are plenty of opportunities to progress internally within the company. The job has been challenging from the offset and therefore doesn't feel like a 'graduate scheme'. Responsibility is given to you quickly, meaning you can rise to the challenge and not seen as 'the newbie' for very long. The challenges presented by the role can be difficult but inspiring. Varied and interesting job roles.
You have to learn quickly as a consequence of being thrown in the deep end! You may find yourself not being part of an actual functioning team.
There isn't a huge amount of structure in terms of new employee training.
Good starting salary and benefits package, with a sound career structure. P&G give you lots of in-post training and support and there's a culture of looking after staff and providing strong educational opportunities within the firm. Hours are good too, so you don't end up as some exploited work drone.
P&G are well-established and solid performers in the market. They know their business and have well-rehearsed structures in place to deal with most eventualities. So all that means they can be a bit . . . dull? You won't find many adventurous, ambitious projects at Procter's, so if you like using your initiative, it can be a frustrating place to work.
Being part of P&G gets you employee discounts at over 250 different big brand outlets.
