I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

I learned a lot when I interned there, cowokers are nice, ready to help and friendly. Hourly pay is good and time is flexible.

Cons

It is hard to get a full time position if you are a co-op.

Advice to Management

I wish I can attend more activities in the company and network with more other people, but there are not that many opportunities.

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Quality of people is unquestionable. Sociable and enjoyable place to work. Having the opportunity to work on heritage brands that have been in my life since I was a little kid has been a rewarding challenge and great experience.

    Cons

    It is a political and hierarchical environment to work in that can be very frustrating. Given a responsibility to shareholders, it is (at times) be risk averse, and can tend to over-think strategies - making it slow to respond.

    Advice to Management

    Foster a culture that promotes change and allows middle management to challenge the status quo. Embracing different views can often bring something new to the table with great potential.
