Former Data Analytics Intern at Procter and Gamble
almost 2 years ago
I'm happy to say that I received lot of support from upper management as a data analytics intern. During my internship I had the opportunity to have multiple one on one meetings with people in upper management, and got to give presentations to the CTO, and other C level members.
Management and peers are incredibly supportive at P&G. As mentioned before, culture was incredibly important to me and people at P&G want the company to succeed, so they are incredibly helpful. Especially in Purchasing, we have amazing management who value organizational development as much as results.
Former Process Development Intern at Procter & Gamble (P&G)

Typically, the intern managers do a great job of supporting interns. However, during my last internship here, the complete opposite was the case. My managers wouldn't listen to my suggestions or thoughts on anything and appeared to assume that because I was just an intern that what I had to say wasn't important. I would never go back to this company.
Upper management offers a lot of support to interns at P&G. Your boss is typically very involved in mentoring you, and you will typically also receive mentoring from his/her boss (your one-up) and their boss. I was contacted by several managers who all scheduled meetings with me to discuss my career goals, aspirations, interests, etc with the intent of getting to know you, not to judge or evaluate your fit with the company. I heard of many interns who would have lunch with their departments VPs or Presidents. The culture is very mentoring-focused.
Since I worked at the plant, being a process engineer, I had little contact with the corporate office where the top brass worked. That said, I had almost daily interaction with the plant manager, who was immensely helpful in hearing my ideas and brainstorming with me as to why some ideas may work and some may not. During execution of projects, however, I had negligible support from the management.
