Great place to work and develop new skill sets
Senior Scientist /CMK Manager (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH and Hunt Valley, MD – July 29, 2015
Procter and Gamble was a great place to work, develop new skill sets, and build great relationships. The day to day activities vary on role and phase in project. A typical week consists of 40% meetings (e.g. multifunctional teams check in to make sure project is on track), 50% job execution (e.g. lab testing, consumer research), and 10%training (e.g. forklift training). I learned how to listen to consumers and develop solutions to improve their lives. I've had both good and bad managers. In certain cases, people are really good technically but struggle when promoted and required to manage other people. The most challenging part of the working at P&G is working on projects and moving on to new projects before completion. The most enjoyable experiences is the autonomy you get as you become more senior in the organization. In addition, the opportunities to gain different experiences and move around is a bonus.
