I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Colgate has excellent benefits and my personal experience has been one of rewarding professional development opportunities. I was able to complete my MBA during my first 2 years with the company. During a period of downsizing, I was given an opportunity to work in NJ. While it was a long commute, I at least continued to be employed.

Cons

The environment is pretty conservative, never really felt relaxed at work nor comfortable enough to share any problems I'd experience in the course of performing my role.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would want to say that an investment in a source of support for the employee as a person would be an added bonus to the great benefits.
