    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The working environment, facilities are really alluring. The staff is co-opertive with high moral values and the motto of "fraternity". "Safety first" is what please me again because if there's life, there is everything.

    Cons

    It has got lot of red tapism to do petty works. the administration is kind of busy with lot of jobs to handle and getting initials of boss becomes hectic at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the standards of this prestigious organisation. Long live colgate.

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

    Pros

    Great location, great training for learning how plumb and understand corporate thinking, first-class facilities, prestigious company. Lots of pleasant co-workers.

    Cons

    Expectation for precision in accounting for project budgets can be a bit lax. A bit much paper shuffling to balance internal departmental balance sheets – after all, it's all in the same company.
    There are some cliques and some people who are their favorites don't always pull their weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how designers think, just designers strive to learn how you think. Be more open to doing business with new outside creative vendors

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive

    Pros

    Caring employer
    Equal opportunities
    usually very objective assessment of individual's performance & acknowledges unique contributions
    Adequate work life balance

    Cons

    Linear growth paths
    Change Management prowess
    Employee benefits could be better, benchmarked with peers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent professional yet caring working environment, with plethora of opportunities

    Local leadership team needs to come across as more visionary & lead the subsidary business as a strong independent unit, with its own thinking, its own growth plan, playing aggressively on local strengths, & contributing to division & global more completely than just $s in profit.

    Pros

    Its a very strong global company with a great reputation. Additionally, although sustainability is new to CPG, over the years we have been quite sustainable considering we were meeting cost savings objectives.

    Cons

    If you work within Finance or Marketing there is a lot of career growth. If you are in Global Design, there is a glass ceiling almost no one penetrates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a mentoring and growth program combined where some one is mentored and guided on their career path.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for learning and growth. Mentoring and growth of employees is a strength of senior management. Company has many opportunities to grow all over the world.

    Cons

    Can be an overly formal atmosphere. Lots of presentations to senior management. The overall style is not for the faint of heart. Most people who work in product management are very smart and very demanding.

    Pros

    The engineers are very serious about their jobs. They are always busy, either out on the floor or in a meeting, but if you schedule your time well, they will sit down and explain what you need to learn with you.

    Give big responsibility to interns.

    Cons

    Morristown location is horrible. The town is dead
