    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A formal educational training program ideal for career switchers looking to shift from an individual contributor-type role pre-MBA to a general management, team leadership role post-MBA.

    Cons

    Pay is average for the industry, which means low for NYC. A BM salary in Cincinnati goes a lot further than in NYC. The culture is also very specific and not for everyone: tons of presentations, meetings, alignment, consensus building. If you like to make fast, sweeping decisions, this is not the place to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Continue delivering strong, steady financial results, but do keep am open mind for new ideas. Colgate hits tons of nice hits, but fewer big grand slams. You need some grand slams to be desirable and credible in this industry.

    I worked at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, benefits, 401K plan.

    Cons

    Can be a nice place to work but probably like anywhere it depends on the department you are assigned to. Admins who have been with the company a long time say that the workload has increased and the perks are fewer than in the past. Hours are 8:30 am. to 4:15 which is nice with half day on Fridays in the summer. Bonuses are mainly in the form of company stock.
