Excellent working environment

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Management has a sense of urgency. Lots of pressure but the positive and supportive environment makes it enjoyable. Excellent rewards system for hardworking employees. Only left because I didn't enjoy the administrative role at that time of my career. The culture there was "we don't care how many hours you spend in the office as long as you get the job done" meaning you can reach your targets for the day in 4 hours and you can knock off

Work/Life balance is non existent

The environment is very paced and stressful. Senior management is grown within the company but how decisions to promote are made is kept under wraps and the same people get opportunities while other high performing individuals are ignored. Senior management is also often inexperienced/not groomed which has created a culture of high expectations without the support needed to do the work.

Pros

Company pays 100% medical aid and gap cover

Cons

Very long hours, no growth even if you’re a high performer unless you’ve built equity amongst leadership team

Competitive

Overall one of the best companies to work for, however the salaries are not market related. Opportunities for advancement are limited in that no processes are put in place for sideways movement

Principled and good company

It was an honor and a privilege to work for Procter and Gamble for almost 9 years. The Work Place Culture is ideal, since the company puts values and morals above all else and always strive to do the honest and right thing in business. When this is upheld, then the attitudes of the work colleagues are positive and make it an environment where people want to help each other to do their best in the company.

Management more concern about risk and safety. Don't understand the basic principals

Most of the time was located to sfety and to issue permits. The reason was the people not sure how to address the Basic principals and to overcome the urgency

Challenging but ideal and fun workplace

My day consisted of supporting Procter and Gamble's internal employees. Support ranged from assisting employees with desktop, laptop, and peripheral issues, imaging new laptops for current or new employees, setup and configure DECT office phones and mobile phones (iPhones), performed IT on-boarding for new employees, performed inventory and asset management of all IT equipment, and liaised with vendors in configuring IT equipment and/or supporting any malfunctioning or defective IT equipment. Working for Procter and Gamble allowed me to increase and improve upon my current knowledge of IT support and procedures, including but not limited to: problem troubleshooting, customer interaction, asset and inventory management, meeting customer expectations, and mobile support. Management and I worked smoothly and in sync together without any hassles to ensure that the employees were constantly operating at 100% efficiency. Any concerns or issues between management and myself were handled in private and in a professional manner. Procter and Gamble was an excellent company with a diverse culture of people. Everyone I supported or interacted with were fun and easygoing. The hardest part of working for Procter and Gamble was not with the employees but with the external vendors. At times, due to time differences and availability, connecting with a vendor was a difficult endeavor and therefore, there were slight delays in resolving issues. However, this was a minor issue and workarounds were always in place. The most enjoyable part of working for Procter and Gamble was learning - 

Pros

Free food and/or drinks

Cons

Communication with external vendors

Customer Service

My typical day was, I will start by going through my e-mail and internet queries and orders, and capture the orders accordingly, and reply back to the customer about their queries, I had a good understanding manager, and he always compliment me on a work well done, The work culture is awesome, the people are very friendly and it is an open office policy which is great, I personally think to work in an open office environment is a good thing, it also give you the opportunity to know the people better that your work with and learn what they are doing. the most enjoyable part of my job was that I was also part of a team and was also invited in meetings with the perm stuff to discuss daily reports and monthly reports and targets, and was given the opportunity to raise my concerns and solutions.

Pros

the company is centralize in Sandton Johannesburg

Cons

perm jobs of contract and temp was a no promising

Procter and gamble is a very good company with very poor management, at procter and gamble you don't get to grow your career, if the manager doesn't like you for personal reasons then you will be stuck on a same position and salary for years
