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

    Pros

    Pay is not bad, people are a nice (with the exception of HR who are the fake nice type)

    Cons

    Work is boring, and now after applying to full time jobs I can say that I got one thanks to the other work experience on my resume - the work experience here is not valuable unless you're looking for similar CRM/enterprise tech jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic about the type of work interns will work on when recruiting, I honestly thought the work would be more exciting than it was. Maybe hire more genuine HR.

    Pros

    Encouraged and challenged me to be my best. Very ethical company with great work life balance. They pay for performance.

    Cons

    Required 2-5 year job change to move up the ladder with relocation to other global locations. Some employees are not as mobile as others.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the conservative well managed strategy that has kept Colgate the leader in consumer products category. They always make a point of thanking Colgate employees worldwide for all their dedication and hard work.
