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.

What does it feel like to be a working mum at P&G?

I am extremely grateful to have a challenging role in an exciting environment, still working with Top Management and on business-critical projects, while at the same time having the flexibility to care for my young daughter. From talking to mums who work in other companies, that is far from ordinary.

What do you like most about P&G?

In my time at P&G, I’ve had may different roles. I’ve been an account manager for small customers in Austria, for a major discounter chain, and for a leading International Drug Market; I’ve had responsibility for the Market Strategies in industries as diverse as Hair Care, Household Cleaning and Food; I’ve worked in Marketing and Sales roles and have even managed a major divestiture of a brand. In every role, I’ve had the chance to develop both personally as well as professionally, and have worked with exceptionally bright people. “A new challenge every day” is not just a recruiting slogan for us, it is a way of living.

What is your favorite part of the job?

The fact that the projects my function is working on are not only tangent to the “daily business”, but to a large extent also to longterm objectives. What I enjoy most is finding patterns in consumer and market data, workshops and studies to elaborate strong arguments and recommendations that drive internal business decisions.

Would you choose P&G again and why?

Yes, I appreciate the inclusive culture as well as the trust and responsibility P&G gives to all employees from Day 1. Compared to other large companies, the personal circle of influence is really wide, already at lower levels of seniority. I especially like that at P&G, employees are enabled and continuously expected to challenge the status-quo, be creative and come up with new ideas.
