It's not the Colgate it used to be

Sales Team Leader (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Colgate-Palmolive full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits and still has some great people there. Most of the brands are very well know and the company store is great.

ConsThe way they treat people is very poor and much different from their posted and much talked about values and principles. It's all about the financials vs. caring and developing people. There is no work/life balance and upper management talks about how important but their actions are the complete opposite.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt needs to be all about the people. Your systems, software and P&L don't mean anything if you don't treat people well. Many people used to go to CP and stay forever even until a few years ago, not anymore. You've turned the company into what you used to poke fun at some of your competitors for.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
