1. Where is the Procter homestead ?

2. Does the company have its own golf club ? Airport ?

3. Where to the top brass live ? is there a P and G enclave ?

4. i know there is a new downtown building but are there other work sites , such as Ivorydale ?

5. in practice, is the company more diversified and inclusive these days ?

Does the company have a corporate presence in the area. I mean, did it build communities like Goodyear Heights or Firestone Park in Akron , or is the company name on local swimming pools and other public ammenities for the community. Is the company a good corporate citizen ?

Procter & Gamble Hall is the Aronoff Center's largest theater and seats 2,719. It has a fully-equipped stage, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and a beautiful ceiling studded with 3,000 fiber optic lenses that create a starlight effect. The rich color scheme of terra-cotta, teal, and ochre is accented with brass trim and cherry wood. Excellent sightlines and comfortable seating add to the enjoyment of any event.

No golf club like Firestone or NCR. No private airport though they fly several Gulstream corporate jets out of Cincinnati's Lunken Field. Not much for plastering their name all over town, only at their many business locations.

I believe since they sell over 300 brands worldwide with multiple other locations they don't feel the need to be splashy other than advertising.

Default Kj I need more details

Just kidding ! Is one tower named Procter and the other Gamble ? Which office would my pulp and paper engineer friends visit when they go down to "head office " ?

Anyone else tell me about the corporate culture ? I am not up on laws in the US regarding club membership but in light of the Augusta National Golf refusal of women as members until recently I am wondering if some clubs in Ohio still reject certain segments of society.

The theatre sounds lovely however, one would think in a company town such as this, they would provide many amenities for employees such as recreational venues, and /or build public community attractions such as pools, rinks, ball diamonds, etc.

I have had read many stories about how NCR had an enormous swimming pool and park in Dayton and that employees were feted with picnics, fairs, the circus , and the like.

Default Pringles...what do you know

Last night i did a cursory check of my bathrooms, kitchen , pantry and laundry and it is amazing how many products they make. And , funny, I was munching somePringles and looked and what ? They are P & G.

Wonder why they don't tend to "plaster their name all over town " as you say. Are family members still at the helm in any capacity. I know nothing of the strucure of the company. i expect that emplyees have generous stock options.

Around here we call them the Dolly Parton building.

I think most P&G employees are happy if they just keep the stock strong and make their stock options worthwhile at retirement. I have several relatives who retired from P&G and they are definitely the best off in the family.

I'm not sure there is a particular enclave, but you can find a lot of "Proctoids" in Wyoming and Terrace Park.

P&G sold Pringles to Kellogg's last year, and no longer manufactures food or beverages.
