    Are you a fresh grad?

    Why you should go to P&G:
    -If you work well, this will be a 'gem' in your resume in the future.
    -Salary is pretty good for fresh grads.
    -If you're after prestige and that Makati-Yuppie-feeling, then you should work there. If you want to go corporate, then P&G is it.
    -Some people say that training there is good. Especially for brand management.
    -You will be working with a lot of brilliant people. This would mean that you can learn from these people.

    Why you shouldn't go to P&G:
    -Some people do not want to go corporate.
    -I have friends who worked with some people from P&G. They say that P&G is overrated because these people were clueless. Could be isolated cases, but well...
    -Do you have major issues with some of their products?
    -You don't want to work in Singapore. My friends who are working for P&G have now moved to Singapore.

    zimdude:i think so.: )
    Meron kayang binding contract sa P&G and how long?
    How much ang starting salary nila for fresh grad.?
    If you passed the exam how long will you wait for an interview? : )
    Pls. reply naman ASAP... :) need your help peeps...
  • CaRaMBaCaRaMBa Administrator PEx Moderator
    Based on what I know...

    Starting Salary - If you're a 'normal' fresh grad (not dean's list, not cum laude, etc), I think it's around P18,000. Could be higher now since that amount was the 'going rate' for 1998. If you're an honor student, it will definitely be P20,000+. Summa cum laudes sometimes have signing bonuses. This is for brand management. I'm not sure about the other departments.

    How long should you wait for an interview - Can be a few weeks, can be a few months. :) If you're an honor student, I think they process your papers faster. It also depends on their 'need'.

    You have a good chance. As for the number of interviews, I cannot answer that question. I got as far as the first interview only. I screwed up during the interview, big time! Ehehe! :D Oh well... I'll try to ask my friends who are working in P&G to post here, no promises though. :)
  • lokolokolokoloko Member PExer
    caramba tnx.. where do you work pala?
  • zimdudezimdude indietechartist ✭✭
    If CaRaMBa passed that interview and joined P&G, PEx would not be the same... :)

    Well, lokoloko, looks like you're cut out for it. Based on some earlier discussion here in PEx - where I posed the question, why not work for the likes of P&G - it seems to me that you don't get to do a lot of creative stuff there. That is also my personal bias.

    But that is a large starting salary for a Metro Manila company.

    It's fine with me as long as i get a high starting pay... : ) why you have a personal bias about P&G?
  • zimdudezimdude indietechartist ✭✭
    Nothing against the company. It's just not my type to work for big multinationals. Small ones pwede pa. :lol:

    lokoloko, you can read about zimdude in this thread: Member in Focus: zimdude

    Let's just say that he can be considered one of the pioneers of the internet industry here in the Philippines.
  • zimdudezimdude indietechartist ✭✭
    nakow nabuking ako :D thanks CaRaMBa :)

    I'm working at inter.net.

    Feeling ko lang kasi, what I would do at a P&G would have little to no effect on what happens at the company, and I wouldn't be able to see the fruit of my labor.

    I guess there's not much real basis since I haven't tried it out!

    uy a co-pexer of ours is going to work for P&G this may(unless he changes his mind), his nick on pex is piggy, he's a graduating senior Industrial Engineering Major from UP-D. From his kwento, i gathered that the starting salary is 20k+ and if he maintains his cum laude standing, i think he gets a signing bonus. I'll go tell him about this thread. :)

    off topic:
    how much is a starting salary for fresh grads in a multi national firm in Manila?

    How's life working for one of the most prolific and successful (?) multinationals around? I've heard gazillions of stories on how P&G employees get all these travel benefits and neat compensation packages, but - is finally working for P&G worth all the hype and hassle you get into as you apply?

    I have a friend who works for their IT dept. who keeps on griping and complaining all day on supposed powerplaying and politics that are quite prevalent inside P&G's dog-eat-dog environment. However, I also have a cousin who says otherwise - that she's never experienced all the hearsays circulating around regarding P&G's culture.

    One thing is certain though - word has it that P&G plans to layoff about 25000 jobs globally - which means they probably won't be as aggressive in hiring as they used to anymore.

    So how's life nga ba inside P&G and is it a company worth applying for (and eventually working for)?
  • zimdudezimdude indietechartist ✭✭
    I think it would be around 15K, for your typical "big multinational." I'm just guessing since I never applied :D

    all the best to piggy!

    btw back in my college days the phrase "selling soap" was used as an archetype. is it still the case?
