Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in New York, NY
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great dental insurance
Decent medical insurance (great coverage but high premiums and co-pays)
Convenient location
Company Store
On-site cafeteria
Vacation Policy

Cons

Not all employees are treated equally -
management gets all the perks while
support staff gets nothing

Advice to Management

If you're going to offer programs like Work Smart then have a policy where every employee is entitled to participate. Not fair that managers can arbitrarily decide on company policy - - be consistent so every employee is treated equally

    The company is not authentic in it's communications to it's employees. It lacks or has lost it's focus on developing talent. It tolerates bad middle managers and it has lost it's focus on truly caring for it's people.

    Realign focus on the Colgate people. Address (not simply promote) those managers who have a history of bad management characteristics.
