I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits and pension program. Medical after retirement. Good succession planning in company. Family-oriented environment, many loyal employees (except maybe in Marketing function). Finally have work/life balance program. Caring company. Merits and bonus still implemented so far. Open-minded and GBLT friendly.

Cons

Old fashioned. Cutting corners now in the wrong places. Only focus on high potentials and not so much the strong base and foundation of loyal employees lower on the totem pole, so few growth opportunities for them. Pay not necc competitive.

Advice to Management

Show that you care more about the employees that keep the company well supported and running - they are loyal, but are often passed over for early level/mgt opportunities that now seem reserved only for hi-potentials/expats. Be less old-fashioned and trust your employees more.

    I worked at Colgate-Palmolive as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly, understanding atmosphere with down-to-earth coworkers! It was an excellent experience in the corporate world. Longevity possible, loyalty is very well rewarded. Wellness programs implemented company-wide.

    Cons

    Well-managed, but the politics of a large company tend to leave employees who go the extra mile to be slightly under-appreciated.


  2. "Wonderful internship experience in IT."
