Pros

Colgate provides a lot of avenues of cross-functional exposure. Also,they encourage high levels of independence & accountability. Good training, both in house as well as though e-learning, is another strength.

Cons

There is a shortage of a formal mentoring program. Also, not so frequent exposure to senior management can sometimes be demotivating.

Advice to Management

It would be good to initiate a formal mentoring program across levels and functions. This would provide a holistic learning experience for the employee and would instill a sense of belonging.

    Pros

    Processes are good, some of the senior management is really good, respect for employees, intolerance for bad behaviour especially towards women

    Cons

    No clarity on career prospects, very little freedom to work, too much centralised, worked with a lot of micro managers, afraid to take hard decisions

    Advice to Management

    While the systems are in place and the company enjoys a good brand image in the market place, the employee morale is low in most departments i have worked with. Need to give more clarity on the career plans, and allow some flexibility in working, right now everything gets decided at the top and even middle managers are doing only execution.

  2. Paradox of demanding and micro managing! Yet ability to do your own thing, if you get the opportunity

    Take risks, trust your people and great things will happen and accept mistakes will happen but there shouldn't be retribution
