    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice people to work with; great company culture;
    The company has very good summer training program for interns. Directors and managers from each department present their work to interns. There are also Technology Center tour and lunch with CEO & CFO. Interns have a lot opportunities to interact with senior managers during the summer.

    Cons

    The full-time openings are very limited in the company.

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great office culture, very clear expectations of my role and got to work on multiple projects. I felt very valued as an intern

    Cons

    No real cons I can think of, perhaps that I felt a little distant from what was going on in the corporate office in NY but my role was almost entirely involved with the Target Branch so it didn't really bother me
