    Pros

    Excellent benefit, exposure to cross functional department and no limit to career growth (for those willing to relocate frequently)

    Cons

    Job safety not anymore guaranteed with several outsourcing initiatives toward Mexico and India effecting many departments (Accounting, Finance, HR, IT, Customer Service...)

    Very old school mentality.

    Strong resistance to change as well as extremely long process to implementation when such process changes are approved.

    Advice to Management

    Too much uncertainty in light of the current changes and outsourcing plans which is dragging efficiency down, need to focus on CP people and show the true "Caring for People" in this difficult time

    Good Company but limited opportunity for those not recruited right out of school

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive

    Pros

    Excellent salary and benefits and great discounts on products.

    Cons

    The company tends to identify those they want to promote early on by ability to relocate around the country and world. If you are not recruited right out of college you may be limited in opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the talent within the company more effectively.

    Pros

    I learned a lot when I interned there, cowokers are nice, ready to help and friendly. Hourly pay is good and time is flexible.

    Cons

    It is hard to get a full time position if you are a co-op.

    Advice to Management

    I wish I can attend more activities in the company and network with more other people, but there are not that many opportunities.

    Pros

    Quality of people is unquestionable. Sociable and enjoyable place to work. Having the opportunity to work on heritage brands that have been in my life since I was a little kid has been a rewarding challenge and great experience.

    Cons

    It is a political and hierarchical environment to work in that can be very frustrating. Given a responsibility to shareholders, it is (at times) be risk averse, and can tend to over-think strategies - making it slow to respond.

    Advice to Management

    Foster a culture that promotes change and allows middle management to challenge the status quo. Embracing different views can often bring something new to the table with great potential.
