    Colgate offers many opportunities for advancement. It also has a great management team.

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive as an intern (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

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I would say that there are many good things about working here:
    Great benefits
    Good employee compensation (even with only a mediocre review)
    If you are ambitious and willing to work for what you want you usually can get it (within reason)
    Good evironment to grow and cultivate your career
    Ability to work overseas and move around if you're disatisfied with your position
    Opportunities to grow yourself as a person and not just as an employee

    Cons

    Somestimes stuffy and conservative, but getting better (more transparency)
    Middle managers seem to be chosen based on advanced degrees and succession planning instead of actual managerial qualifications; I think this has to do with promoting people who've earned it, but by being limited to the promotion scale within the company. In order to get to a certain level, generally you must have people to manage, but not everyone can be a manager, so there are challenges there.
    HR is sometimes kind of a joke; they are not really well versed in the company policies for the benefit programs or leave programs...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revising the promotion structure would be a good start. Being careful about promoting employees with advanced degrees when it appears that that is the reason for promotion. Working harder to reach young employees and jaded employees with the realties of being a large corperation.

    I worked at Colgate-Palmolive part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They have great cafeteria in their facility. The people are very friendly and helpful. The area is a nice place to live in. They have a very nice work/life balance and have health days throughout the year. Also, have a store on site where you can buy discounted CP products

    Cons

    I do not have any complaints about working there. Absolute great place to work and live. Saw a couple turkeys in the parking lot once though, kinda concerning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice. Business is doing well and everyone seemed qualified and competent.

    I worked at Colgate-Palmolive as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly, understanding atmosphere with down-to-earth coworkers! It was an excellent experience in the corporate world. Longevity possible, loyalty is very well rewarded. Wellness programs implemented company-wide.

    Cons

    Well-managed, but the politics of a large company tend to leave employees who go the extra mile to be slightly under-appreciated.
