Procter and Gamble Incorporated have experienced hardships for many years. From lawsuits to complaints about employee morale and discrimination, P&G has seen it all. The past four years have seemed profitable for the marketing and distributing mogul, but the company has endured many pitfalls during that time as well.
Procter and Gamble has dealt with lawsuits from companies that manufacture their products such as Rely and Vicks to major multi level marketing companies such as Amway Inc. To get back at these so called "road blocks" P&G has returned the favor by spying on other companies in the hopes to shut them down and gain the patent to their product.
Being on the production side of this company as well proves to be hazardous to your health as told from eyes of a CBS news correspondent. From such things as unsanitary working places and the closest thing to slave labor, P&G has spared no expense to keep their operating budgets low. But shockingly enough, P&G keeps their secrets hidden under a small and friendly image offering you all the products you use in your everyday life.
