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

    Pros

    You learn all about the manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, and customer service departments of the company and get great analytical experience. There's no such thing as getting coffee for your manager.

    Cons

    In a six month internship you train anywhere from two to two and a half months, making it hard to be able to see the benefits of your work.
