A good, stable company with good intentions and potential

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Morristown, NJ

ProsVery stable, often very caring. The benefits are great, and very comprehensive. As a global leader there are many opportunities to gain valuable experiences. If a person wants to work internationally there are lots of opportunities. In fact, promotions at times require that an individual accept moving around and even taking an international assignment.

ConsIt can be hard to get promoted without political connections. Some folks appear to be fast-tracked and others who work very hard are overlooked. Recognition is seen by some as being inconsistent. The training program is weak. Employee turnover. The efforts to save money can be short sighted. Example: plant shutdowns and other budget restrictions.

Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate and R&D functions should be more in touch with plants.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Associate Brand Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    I worked at Colgate-Palmolive

    Pros: Most marketers are attracted to Colgate due to its Manhattan location - not many CPG companies are in the city. That means you get… Cons: I wasn't prepared to work 80 hours a week - as an ABM, you get thrown in - sink or swim - you are expected… Advice to Senior Management: Value employees more - keep with industry standards and provide 3 weeks vacation, not 2 to people with experience and Master's degrees (- it's abusive).… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
