Great overall company, but the culture that was so attractive in the past is rapidly deteriorating

Pros

They truly believe and strive to be an ethical, fair and honest company.

Cons

The company is not authentic in it's communications to it's employees. It lacks or has lost it's focus on developing talent. It tolerates bad middle managers and it has lost it's focus on truly caring for it's people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realign focus on the Colgate people. Address (not simply promote) those managers who have a history of bad management characteristics.

    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

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You 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!!!!!!
