Like being an engineer anywhere else, you're saying.
Well . . yes, and no.
Procter & Gamble is a remarkably stable company, and
technical employment just doesn't fluctuate. P&G engineers
don't worry about shutdowns or layoffs.
And P&G puts more than a little emphasis on the creative
aspects of engineering-the solving of problems by men
encouraged to use their own initiative to "find a different

a project in the area that interests him most.
Projects of considerable responsibility are assigned each in-
dividual early in his career, and, .ssisted by planned per-
sonal coaching at first, it is rot unusual for an engineer
after six months to be responsible for the design and de-
velopment of equipment in the million dollar range.
This strong beginning leads to advancement in 4 relatively
