    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive Canada full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people are good to work with and collaborative. Aims for work/life balance with 2 day work from home option. Lots of opportunities to move and try different roles and to have exposure with senior management.

    Cons

    People are stretched too thin due to lean environment. Some managers are in their positions due to years of experience but have no people management skills or training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase resources in certain areas. Ensure managers have proper training so that their direct reports are happier and more productive.

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive Canada

    Pros

    You can learn a lot in a very short while. People here also work very hard. A lot of opportunities to step up and show your abilities.

    Cons

    Lack of team spirit. People don't seem to genuinely care very much about you beyond your work.
