    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Top notch art health insurance benefits, decent work life balance (when working in the offices).

    Cons

    Too much hierarchical, slow pace decision-making process (or sometimes no decision), zero support you are going to get if you make a decision. Excessive savings driven mentality, it is all about money.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to be more dynamic and have trustworthy leaders that genuinely inspire people.
