Family friendly with a close knit group of people

Business Manager (Current Employee)
Piscataway, NJ

I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive

ProsFamily friendly; good benefits; flexible hours; nice offices; nice people; easy work; proud of the products we manufacturel

ConsRecently has become very political. Has caved to the recession mentality of shipping jobs off to India and Mexico. Sad.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a great group of people here and you are doing very well. Why do you want to ruin the atmosphere and fuel the recession by shipping jobs out to Mexico and India? I would suggest cutting your bonuses back a little instead. FOR SHAME!!!!!!
