    Pros

    After 20+ years in the company the benefits become a competitive advantage for Colgate when evaluating going to another company.

    Cons

    Tired of working hard and not getting promoted even after great performance reviews. Specific individuals got promoted out of the sudden despite complaints from business partners.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking the company is perfect and has nothing to do with regards motivating people.

    Pros

    - Colgate is a truly global Company, when working there you really feel you are part of a global team. Lots of interactions with people from different geographies
    - Financilly solid with consistent positive results
    - Very focused and internally aligned
    - Strong team spirit. Respect and caring values applied.

    Cons

    - You need to be globally mobile and make yourself 100% available in terms of timing and location in order to grow in the company. If being an expat you reject a move to another country you get localized in whichever country you are at this moment
    - Too centralized few room to develop ideas or new ways of doing
    - Diversity only in terms of nationality, few women in top management and most men with same traditional profile (married with wife and children following them around the world)

    Advice to Management

    - Review current practices to promote good talent to senior positions
    - Push for real diversity open mind to different ways of building carreers
    - Leverage dividends payout with salary increases

    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
