    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 Management

    Accelerate decision making and decentralise innovation.

    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 Management

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