    Pros

    Culture, personal growth, leadership grooming are the key things to take away. There is some pressure for achievements but it is well rewarded in the end.

    Cons

    Peer pressure is not that great. You have to commit to improve yourself or take the help of your managers. Some amount of favoritism exists at the lower levels of the organization.

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People know each other personally. Excellent work ethics. Very accommodating people who help you through difficult times (even personal). Very good opportunities if you stay with the company long enough. If you are recognized, your salary is really decent.

    Cons

    People have to wait a bit to get opportunities. Onsite opportunities really rare. Instead short trips for meetings / training provided. No training. Process does not encourage documentation. Limited scope of visibility and influencing unless you are working under a really powerful function. Focus only on leadership skills and no technical skills. Marketing oriented company and it believes in marketing above everything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None..

    Maybe more training and certification opportunities might be good for the employees.
