Senior Management is out of touch.

National Account Manager (Current Employee) Morristown, NJ

ProsGood benefits and products with strong brands.

ConsSenior Management is out of touch with the reality of the sales environment. Key positions are not filled in a timely manner. Management has a bullying style of leadership. Senior Management uses the same rhetoric over and over with no action behind the words. The are viewed as hyporcritical. Very risk-averse and conservative. HR works for management and not the employees. Colgate is a good news company and honesty is not encouraged.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's time to make some changes in key management positions to bring a fresh perspective and a 21st century style of management back to the US Company. Let HR work for the employees and separate them more from the opinions of senior management's bias and influence.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
