    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time

    Pros

    Training, global vision, well-known company, that means a lot on your resume

    Cons

    Favoritism does exist, and it is brutally display. In the past I would recommended Colgate to any friend, nowadays, look for another employer. They are way better companies out there.
    Procurement is not specially a place to be at this moment, a lot of changes and promotions to people with one or less than a year experience in the field, but very well connected.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not ask in the future why you have such a high rotation rate, when you should know better the answer
