    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent community of colleagues. Supportive culture. Plenty of opportunity for those prepared to work hard and be flexible about where the company wants to place you.

    Cons

    High alignment culture means that things can move very slowly. IT & Technical systems are old and high control which makes it difficult to keep pace with outside world. Salary and benefit programs are very rigid. Work by rule rather than guiding principles and logic, eg terrible vacation policy which management recognizes but won't change.

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Managers/Colleagues are generally very respectful of your time. Decent benefits: half-day summer Fridays (Memorial weekend- Labor day weekend) Transportation assistant program; Hearth coverage starts on your start date; pension; For every dollar you contribute to your 401K the company matches .50 up to 6%; success sharing; annual bonus. 3 week vacation after 5 years of service. Sound financials e.g stable company.

    Cons

    company is very cost conscious which means limited resources. Lots of personnel shifts in marketing which impacts cross-functional partners. Poor management communication.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for those who want to explore executive opportunities overseas. If they like you, it's the kind of place you can spend your entire career.

    Cons

    The US company is not a fun place. Most of the opportunities are overseas. Still very much an old boys club.
