I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive

Pros

Lucrative equity packages for sr. employees, decent work-life balance, strong culture of ethical values, great people, very good future for the company

Cons

The company is overly conservative, it is difficult to foster an entreprenuerial spirit in the US organization, but the conservatism has served us well in the poor economy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to get more external with customers and strengthen the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns, seem to be overly conservative

    Pros

    -good learning on the job
    -disciplined approach to brand management
    -consistent/ stable company

    Cons

    -mostly trade marketing. they don't build brands and don't really invest in brands other than toothpaste
    -very traditional company. mostly run by sales
    -its all about cost-cutting and hitting volume targets to report to wall street
    -current leadership team is not so caring. morale is really low. very low staffed. they squeeze their peopel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -value your people more
    -invest behind your brands and build equities. you can only do buy-one-get-one-frees and free-after-rebates for so long before your brands become commodities
