Pros

Truly multinational company that seriously values international exposure and experience and provides opportunities for short and long term assignments overseas and or across functions. Strong brands with stable financials and proven track record in good and bad economic times. Strong leadership training and development programs at higher levels of the organization.

Cons

Slow to adopt flexible ways of working to refelect the needs of today's employees. We do not have formal work from home options and in most cases working from home is still perceived poorly by management. Difficult to rise to senior management positions if you are not open to relocating to different country or region during your career. Slow career progression compared to new economy expectations of early in career folks coming into the business.

Advice to Management

We really need to break out of the archaic midset that a person needs to be in the office to get the work done. We need a way to manage and balance career progression expectations of high potential high performing employees. Our promotions seem to be much slower than I would have expected.

    Pros

    It is a medium size company to work for but has a global focus which keeps work interesting and fresh. They have lots of opportunity for advancement and change can happen as fast or slow as you want it to be.

    Cons

    Not as big as other companies and most people only think Colgate-Palmolive makes toothpaste(which isn't true). Colgate has growth potential.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your younger employees and we love to hear feedback negative or positive. That is the way of the youngest generation in the workforce.
