Meeting your full potential while driving the company forward at P&G


Uppers

The people are amazing, the environment is competitive and supportive, networking is encouraged and facilitated, the projects are meaningful and have clear visible outcomes, and the perks were really a cherry on top.


Downers

That it had to end! If I had one criticism, it would be that there is a lot of pressure to perform. I tend to thrive under pressure though, so it worked well for me.


Advice to Potential Interns

Apply early and talk directly to recruiters - P&G is all about networking and making connections. Definitely frame your interview in terms of context, action, and results because P&G loves problem solvers.


Advice to Management

I don't really have much to say in this category. Compensation was competitive, my hours were determined by my own work ethic and volition, and everyone I met seems pretty happy to be here. The only criticism I heard often was regarding bureaucracy - simplify whatever you can.

Intern learns valuable work and personal lessons through a great summer experience


Uppers

I was given very worthwhile projects. The internship was paid. I was given lots of resources to help me every step of the way to answer my questions and help me grow as a person as well as an asset the company.


Downers

I disliked teh acronyms. P&G is a large and complex company, so delving into it is a little hard.


Advice to Potential Interns

P&G is a hire from within company. If you do great and work hard you will be rewarded. Also, the company is fantastic at training and developing its own employees. There are many training opportunities to help employees improve themselves in their work.

P&G provides interns real-world experience that adds value to the business by saving the company money, time, and resources.


Uppers

I was given real work that full time employees would be completing if I was not here. I have also made life long friends and valuable career coaching and connections from full time employees. I have also had the opportunity to meet the CEO 3 times.


Downers

You do not know what city you will be placed in until after you accept your offer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Expect to be challenged. P&G will push you to your limits and you will grow not only with your work skills but also as a leader.

Skip Jr. Designer and learn what it takes to be a Creative Director


Uppers

The best aspects of this internship is that I get to see what P&G is like from the inside. To know that the people really do care about the products they make, and the innovations they try to achieve in the marketplace. I also enjoy that as a designer I get to manage projects, which you don't get the opportunity to do very often this early in your career.


Downers

Probably the fact that I'm in a cubicle. I come very a pretty fast paced open environment, so this is a bit different.


Advice to Potential Interns

They take less than 1% of applicants, but don't let that stop you from applying. What's the worst thing that happens they say no, and your left in the same spot you were before you applied. This doesn't mean you're not qualified for your degree or education, it just means they didn't think you were qualified for the position they had. Keep your head up.


Advice to Management

If you're just wanting to design all day, pick a different internship. If you want to design, manage, and lead projects this may be the job for you. Just don't expect anyone to hold your hand through it all. Yes, people will be there to guide, help, and offer resources but you are on your own for the most part. It's the real world kid. Buckle up.

P&G gave real accounts and projects for interns to handle. My projects had results up in $10+ million in sales.


Downers

Many tasks were prerscribed and thought out before I tried them-- desire more free reign for ideation.


Advice to Potential Interns

P&G truely invests in interns-- $20+/hr salary, relocation and housing stipend, sales gets a company car, lots of training and benefits!


Advice to Management

Be more transparent with assigning locations for positions-- Sales employees have little control over location assigments.

The Amazing Journey: A deep look into the beauty of the brains behind big brands.


Uppers

The People. The Opportunities. The Culture. The Chance to Build Brands and Your Career.


Downers

Final decision (offer / no offer) occurs over one week after final presentation.


Advice to Potential Interns

Procter & Gamble is undeniably a fantastic place to intern. I have seven years of work experience and am entering my second year of MBA candidacy and I learned more in 12 weeks than I have in the past 3 years of my professional experience. The people at P&G genuinely want you to succeed because we are truly all "in this together". The value of a promote-from-within culture is evident and though intense at times, the culture is very supportive, collegial and surprisingly refreshing. I hope to walk away from this experience with a full-time job offer but I am even more excited I will walk away with a host of new friends!
