          Pros

          - Overall, people are nice and easy to work with - Hybrid work situation is pretty relaxed and seems to work well - Global opportunities, if you’re interested in working abroad (for marketing)

          Cons

          - Too much work, too few resources, resulting in working long hours, especially in marketing (each employee doing 2-3 jobs for the pay of 1) - Very low pay (especially compared to other post-MBA options), very small bonuses — it’s difficult to live in NYC on salary - Office politics, bureaucracy, faux positivity > change, growth, creating value and impact - Slow career progression, especially when compared to other post-MBA options - MBA no longer required to work in marketing and you don’t get any sort of title / pay bonus when entering after grad school

                  Pros

                  Colgate is a really wonderful place to work! The employee population is an interesting mix of tenured employees who have grown their careers at CP (lots of institutional knowledge!) and newer people who bring their outside expertise to the business. There is a ton of passion and enthusiasm from employees, especially around our Company Values - Caring, Courageous, Inclusive - which really underpin everything we do as a company. Stable company, awesome brands/products, lots of really cool innovation being developed, and tons of opportunity to make an impact on the future of the business.

                  Cons

                  Technology in the HR space should be updated; hard to get involved in extra-curricular activities.

                      Cons

                      Most corporations are in an never ending chase to beat competition’s profitability and market share and thus can result in pressure on your regular employee including them being squeezed out.

                      Is there an ‘active job seeker’ icon for recruiters on LinkedIn the way there is an ‘actively recruiting’ icon for job seekers?

                      Senior Resource Manager

                      Last Thursday and Friday I interviewed with 2 hiring managers for 2 different companies. Both of them said they’d like me to progress to the next interview and the recruiter would reach out. One company said they wanted a offer out this month so it would be a quick process. I sent thank you emails and references. I haven’t heard from either recruiter. I had the recruiter screening and hiring manager interview just days apart, I thought I’d hear back by now. Thoughts?!
