Christoph Breetz
Associate Finance Director DACH 11 yrs at P&G

Why should anyone consider P&G as employer?
P&G offers the opportunity to experience full responsibility for your business area as of day 1, which will continue throughout your career. Further, given the assignment rotation at P&G there is a lot of room to develop as a well-rounded finance manager.

How would you describe your colleagues?
People at P&G are diverse in all aspects. This makes working at P&G a great experience as there is – apart from a wide range of professional skills - a lot to discover

Have you been on an international assignment?
Actually, whilst having started in Frankfurt and currently being in Frankfurt, I spend most of my career in Geneva (Switzerland), doing various roles in Corporate Finance, Financial and Strategic Planning and Financial Analysis across different business units.

Fabian Gentgen
Key Account Manager 2.5 yrs at P&G

What is your favorite part of the job?
The strategies I implement for my costumer have an immediate impact on the ‘real’ world. Every time I visit a retailer store I can see the changes I worked with my customer.

What is the key learning from your current role?
That understanding both customer & shopper is crucial for success. The customer de-cides how he wants to support you and the consumer ultimately decides how relevant a product is. In order to be successful you need to understand both, which is accomplished through the multifunctional team setup at P&G.

From the first day onwards, I have gained the responsibility to work on my own project which had a real impact on the every-day business. Developing strategies and solving complex tasks in a team of highly motivated and ambitious people makes P&G a great place to be. Additionally, thanks to P&G’s leadership driven company culture, I participate in a wide range of trainings and coaching so that I can develop the skills to become a true business leader.

What is the thing you like the most at P&G?
As an intern at P&G, you do not assist in daily business, but you manage your own project. This implies full responsibility right from the beginning. I really appreciate that I can freely decide about all project-related topics and that I am the person in charge for any questions or feedback. At the same time, I can approach everybody in the company, no matter which level in hierarchy for support and coaching. It shows how P&G is both trusting and promoting its interns.
