I have been working at Colgate-Palmolive full-time (more than a year)

Pros

They company has a diversity of backgrounds and ethnicities. The benefits and pay are comparable if not better than other companies.

Cons

Like most companies the heirarchy is prominent. To get promoted it seems you have to be in the 'IN' crowd. Many people stay at the company for a long time which is good but it makes it difficult for newcomers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better career path roads and the ability to step outside your current role and try something different.
