I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive

Pros

Stable Co. Meets OP target as per Wall Street.
Good Dental Benefits
Co. Store

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.
