I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Colgate has excellent employee programs and is very well run. Colgate is slow moving, but consistent and rewards hard work. Colgate people generally want to do the right thing and are seasoned

Cons

Colgate is hierarchical, slow to innovate and people are stretched very thin. Cost saving is valued above quality at times. Passion is not valued at Colgate. There are a lot of empty suits that move ahead by giving the semblance of competance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to focus on changing the old guard and the top down approach. It is a bit stifling and does not really allow for change or creativity. Where are the women?

    Enjoyed a very hands-on six month co-op with Colgate in which I learned and achieved a lot.

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

    Pros

    The co-op at Colgate provides training in programs like Crystal Reports, SAP & BW. Interns are given real projects that have a genuine impact on the company and are not made to waste their time on "coffee & donuts" type tasks. The office in Atlanta is a very friendly, helpful, and team-oriented environment. You will feel at home here.

    Cons

    Even with six months spent in the co-op there are still some projects that are large enough you cannot see them through to completion. The only other con is that the program starts off quickly... it can be like trying to drink from a fire hose at times, but everyone is patient and helpful so this isn't so bad.
