    Pros

    Company culture of team work is fantastic. System oriented processes allows for steady business while allowing experimentation on pushing the boundaries.

    Cons

    Decision making by consensus sometimes means some opportunities are missed. Takes some time to learn the systems to become truly effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accelerate decision making and decentralise innovation.

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

    Pros

    The working environment, facilities are really alluring. The staff is co-opertive with high moral values and the motto of "fraternity". "Safety first" is what please me again because if there's life, there is everything.

    Cons

    It has got lot of red tapism to do petty works. the administration is kind of busy with lot of jobs to handle and getting initials of boss becomes hectic at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the standards of this prestigious organisation. Long live colgate.

    Pros

    Caring employer
    Equal opportunities
    usually very objective assessment of individual's performance & acknowledges unique contributions
    Adequate work life balance

    Cons

    Linear growth paths
    Change Management prowess
    Employee benefits could be better, benchmarked with peers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent professional yet caring working environment, with plethora of opportunities

    Local leadership team needs to come across as more visionary & lead the subsidary business as a strong independent unit, with its own thinking, its own growth plan, playing aggressively on local strengths, & contributing to division & global more completely than just $s in profit.

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

    Pros

    You learn all about the manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, and customer service departments of the company and get great analytical experience. There's no such thing as getting coffee for your manager.

    Cons

    In a six month internship you train anywhere from two to two and a half months, making it hard to be able to see the benefits of your work.
