    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Safe, fair, diverse work environment. Good brand name for resume building. Proper attention and equity for minority groups.

    Cons

    Seems to be diminished US job security with many roles moving to global subs in India and Mexico.

    It is easy to get lured in by growth and theoretical 'global opportunities' and then stifled by corporate politics and overlooked by global employees that are less expensive

    Growth opps appear to go to the following people: a. Dual citizens b. People willing to relocate domestic at 5% increase or less c. Ethnically diverse, military vet, or Executive female.

    Experienced poor environment as a Working Mom. The flex time that is mentioned during an interview was frowned upon and difficult to initiate. I felt silent penalization and pressure for enacting entitled benefits. While this company historically lands on the 'best for working moms' list. ..i met MANY who disagree.

    Advice to Management

    Company demands loyalty for growth but does not demonstrate loyalty. Employer Brand does not match employee experience. Conservative stodgy company seemz to be pretending to be modern, innovative, and full of opportunity.

    Pros

    The hours are really the best. If your manager approved your flex time that is a great option too.

    Cons

    Managers do not promote within. Excuses are made when you finally get the guts to ask for a promotion. Some managers do not have the backs of their group. communication is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and ask what they want to see done with their careers. Promoting even those in the lower pay grade helps the company as a whole. Happy employees make them stay with the company. Communicate effectively. Seems like what senior management thinks is happening in each group, actually isn't happening.
