    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    With the exception of paid time off, good benefits. Lots of training and employee activities. I had an office when I was there but those have been eliminated recently. Some opportunities for overseas assignments especially if you work in Finance.

    Cons

    Extremely political. One person doesn't like you and you can be gone without knowing what happened. Also, some departments - particularly sales - are the typical "old boys network". Very conservative. Even in the worst heat of summertime, men are expected to wear long sleeve shirts and ties. In some ways felt like high school with all the "cliques" - just look at the cafeteria and how departments have lunch together and talk about other people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More emphasis on better managers and people development.

    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).
