Ethical, good people, well run and stable

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsColgate 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

ConsColgate 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 Senior ManagementNeed 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?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Interns are given real projects that have a genuine impact… 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. … Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
