    Because it is smaller, advancement opportunities are limited. Good GMPs practices are practiced, no jewelry. In production area.

    Listen to employees often. Let employees know expectations. Better lunch options. Confidential information should remain in confidence. Keep up Good work.

    I worked at Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed everyday working for Colgate. It was a challenging and very rewarding experience. The lessons and knowledge I gained from working here has propelled my career and led to a comfortable salary. Very liberal with their time-off policy. We had almost every holiday off and 3 weeks paid vacation, with an option to purchase a 4th week. All within my first year with the company. Upper management was accessible and involved. An overall joy to work here.

    Cons

    It seemed impossible to fire someone. You might think this is a Pro, but when a person or group of people are always out sick and half assing their duties while they were working; yet HR would not authorize their termination due to fear of a lawsuit, we have a problem not being able to fire someone.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up the ship. Stop letting employees bend the rules and pushing their laziness to an extreme. Rid yourself of these parasites.

    Cons

    Upper management has unrealistic goals. Relocation is a requirement for salespeople to advance.

    Listen to your sales people.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, good culture, job is a lot of work but not hard. well respected products. Great benefits.

    Cons

    They don't pay for performance, bonuses tied to obscure metrics which as an individual you have very little control over. Capped bonuses for consumable portion of sale. Unless you want to move, no real chance to move up in the organization. Get paid peanuts compared with rest of dental.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to keep your reps motivated (i.e., contests, incentives, perks, etc) and like they have the ability to affect real change.
