    Former Employee - Research Safety in Piscataway, NJ

    I worked at Colgate-Palmolive full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very comfortable atmosphere. Good working conditioss

    Cons

    Much of their product interests revolves around the third world countries resulting in less manufacturing and job opportunities here in the US. Much downsizing as well through closures of facilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more products and be more competitive in the US against P&G and Unilever to draw more homegrown talent; however, their buisness model seems to focus abroad. I have not been with this organinzation for awhile but still have good friends there as well as sometimes keep apprized of their activities.
