Colgate-Palmolive is the best place I've ever worked in 20 years.

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.

    Cons

    Micro Managing. Lack of Direction. Chaos IT Dept.
    Middle Managers are Non-Technical making tech. decisions. Some even don't have right qualifications for IT jobs. Completely Fake HR. HR works for managers.
    Promotions are given based on Friendship and Likings.
    High level managers with power hires their friends and family members. Amazing...
    How does HR approves this ?? GOD only knows!!!!
    No Planning. When things goes wrong trying to find fault and finger pointing instead of fixing the issues. No training provided. No travel/training for real tech. people but Mgt. flies 1st class around the world without any issues. What a joke!!!!
    India runs the whole IT show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Non-tech managers. Give them another round of VERP.
    Trust your people. Spend money on training.
