    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time

    Pros

    the company has great benefits like summer hours, Christmas bonus, telecommute is an option and work life balance is seen in the company. Paid sick and vacation days and a great IT department if you're a regular employee.

    Cons

    These benefits are only available if you are full time regular. To cut down on costs they contract nearly everyone to save money which means no benefits at all except vacation and sick days. It also means you get paid less as a contacted employee and not a regular.
