I worked at Colgate-Palmolive

Pros

Very successful company with great benefits. Wonderful place to start your career. You get to work closely with some of the most successful companies in the world (Like Wal-Mart)

Cons

Very thick glass ceiling that can only be shattered by moving up the chain slowly. Seriously -it takes decades to advance there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have groomed a lot of great younger talent. Let them take over much sooner and guide the company to even higher heights.

    Pros

    Management recognizes and promotes strong performers; opportunities for growth and advancement in your career; company store is great!

    Cons

    Non-management salaries are just OK; workload is not evenly distributed (i.e. some people are out the door at 4:59pm every day, while others constantly work late); there is an unspoken understanding that to progress in the Finance group, you must do an international rotation in a foreign subsidiary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to recognize and promote strong performers;
