A very caring company that has changed dramatically over the last years, turning to outsourcing jobs overseas.

I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

1) Good Pay 2) A very caring environment up to 2 years ago 3) Many career opportunities 4) Challenging Work

Cons

1) Outsourcing functions overseas to India for substandard work 2) Reduction of NVOs to all time low-more work, less people. 3) Too focused on margin

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You became successful because of the people that worked hard for you that you are now outsourcing.

    Comfortable, family-oriented company. A little old fashioned.

    I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and pension program. Medical after retirement. Good succession planning in company. Family-oriented environment, many loyal employees (except maybe in Marketing function). Finally have work/life balance program. Caring company. Merits and bonus still implemented so far. Open-minded and GBLT friendly.

    Cons

    Old fashioned. Cutting corners now in the wrong places. Only focus on high potentials and not so much the strong base and foundation of loyal employees lower on the totem pole, so few growth opportunities for them. Pay not necc competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show that you care more about the employees that keep the company well supported and running - they are loyal, but are often passed over for early level/mgt opportunities that now seem reserved only for hi-potentials/expats. Be less old-fashioned and trust your employees more.
