      I have been working at Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals full-time

      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.
