An important factor in your consideration of career opportunities with any company must be that portion of your total compensation that will help you build financial independence and provide protection against the unexpected for the years ahead. Salary is only a part of a well-developed compensation program. As a P&G employee, you receive more than just a paycheck. Total compensation includes your pay (base salary), benefit programs like medical insurance, life insurance, retirement plans, as well as stock purchase programs and other forms of recognition.
We believe our salaries should stand out from the crowd and that is why we apply two principles when defining our salaries:
- We pay competitively: We review our salary ranges each year through benchmarking with the finest companies that compete with P&G for market share and people and ensure our salaries are competitive.
- We pay for performance: Salary increases happen steadily throughout your career and will vary based on your performance progression: Each employee has their own salary plan to correctly reward each individual contribution.
