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

    Pros

    As a full-time cooperative student intern, I gained invaluable experience and insight on lab-scale and pilot-scale process development by being granted the opportunity to contribute to various ongoing projects involving soaps and underarm products. I also gained exposure in the handling of raw materials and active ingredients within a cGMP-compliant environment and further developed my mindset as a professional engineer in a lab-based and plant-based setting. My mentors and superiors were amicable, resourceful, and proactive in fostering my skills and knowledge in the field of chemical engineering. Thank you for everything, Colgate-Palmolive.

    Cons

    If granted the opportunity, I would like to return to Colgate-Palmolive as a full-time employee.
