    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive

    Pros

    1. Excellent work life balance : The company truly cares for its employees personal priorities
    2. Lot of focus on development of the employee : A lot of effort is put into planning development of individual careers
    3. Challenging work : Lot of fulfilling work available

    Cons

    1. Not enough dynamism in overall company strategy : The company does not appear to care much about achieving a higher growth rate (topline or bottom line)
    2. Too system driven : Almost bureaucratic in the approach in many areas
    3. Too cautious in decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The top management needs to focus on building strategies for generating higher topline growth to provide faster growth opportunities to employees to grow their careers. This could include inorganic growth options (mergers and acquisitions).
