    Pros

    A great place to work, very approachable senior management with a lot of career opportunities if you are willing to go the extra mile

    Mid management needs to align with senior management on personnel policies and start working towards the development of their reports, in order to get people motivated and more committed to their roles

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gran potencial, excelente negocio, muy buena gerencia. Oportunidades de crecer.

    Cons

    Me pusieron en un departamento que nada que ver con mi carrera, me trabajaron mas aya de lo sano, y luego me despidieron.

    Advice to Management

    Contraten a su personal para lo que estudiaron, no traten de reinventar el agua azucarada. Si es de merca, ponganlo en merca, si es ingeniero no lo pongan en mercadeo cuando deberia estar en fabrica.

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

    Pros

    Good place to start your career if you want to become a guru in Marketing (FMCG sector). Also, it is very good place where you can enhance your presentation skills. I did approximately 2 or 3 presentations every week in front of all your colleagues.

    Cons

    It is not really wealthy company comparing to oil or medical industry, therefore salary is not so high. Also, if are planning to work in sales department, you can be shocked. It is not so «clean» job as in insurance or medical companies where you meet only with Top managers.
    If Colgate offers you regional sales representative position you will go to very dirty places: bazaars, small dirty shops, warehouses and etc.
    If you go to modern trade it will be much better. Cause modern trade only about supermarkets.

    Advice to Management

    Good place to start your career in Marketing (FMCG sector). But if you will go to sales department be ready for dirty work.
